Vintage DIY Spool Christmas Tree

An original idea of a table-top Christmas tree, especially for those who craft a lot is a vintage spool Christmas tree. The supplies are 25 Skinny wooden spools, 1 wood mini spool, 1 vintage wooden spool, 1 Crystal Star Trinket pin, 12 inches of cream ruffled edge trim, baker’s twine, glitter glue, text paper. Punch 5 circles in the spools, wrap all the mini wooden spools with your text paper, and vintage wood spool with music paper. Glue 11 skinny mini spools using strong liquid glue. Add next layer of 8 skinny wooden spools to the circle and glue the entire piece to the vintage wooden spool.  Add some glitter glue to all the edges of the spools to give it a little sparkle. Glue the wooden spool to the tree skirt. Wrap baker’s twine around the vintage spool and tie it in a bow. Print out your holiday sentiment on cream cardstock.   Trim to a banner piece leaving a little excess off the left side of the printed title. Add stick pin to the top of the tree and put it on the table. Enjoy your work!
