Now on to today's share! This project is also up on the Bo Bunny blog as we feature Father Christmas today. I love the vintage feel of this collection and found it perfect to create a little Christmas decor project.
INSPIRATION: Wooden Spool Tree
I found the wooden spools and flower pot at Ben Franklin Crafts. And I found the dowel rods for the branches, the 1" wood strip for the trunk and the 5" round piece for the base at Hobby Lobby.
I created the tree and the branches and placed them in the pot before realizing that it was going to be too heavy to stand alone. DH came to the rescue by suggesting that I attach it to a round wooden piece. He then used some wood screws and counter sunk them so that it would be flat on the bottom. It worked perfectly!
I covered each spool with patterned paper from the Father Christmas 6x6 paper pad. Once everything was assembled, I hot glued the Trinkets to the front of the spools and embellished them a bit more with some jewels.
After I put it all together, and took the photos, I kind of think that I should have painted the spools a dark green. What do you think? I just may end up painting them anyway...but very carefully! LOL!
Thank you for your visit!
