Spool Christmas Trees

  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Most of the stores are decorated for the Season & I must say I'm getting the urge myself! I have a few friends who have put up their Christmas trees & other Christmas decorations. I haven't put any decorations up yet, but I'm busy crafting them!

  I made these sweet little spool trees this weekend. I think they'll look darling in my little girl's room. The colours are perfect.


Supplies:
  • Spools - I bought them at Michaels, but you could use vintage ones too. 
  • Patterned paper strips
  • Twine
  • Buttons
  • Adhesive & glue - I used glue dots to adhere the paper & buttons. Then hot glue to glue the spools together.
  • Die cut stars
I hadn't used hot glue for ages so I got it a little gloppy in places. I got better at it the more I did. :)




Are you getting excited for the Christmas season? I am!!

Enjoy your Monday!
