make: a mini-spool necklace (with the kids!)

Mini Spool Necklace

On Monday, I shared a necklace that I made with a vintage spool, and today I have something similar that you can make with children (or by yourself, just because). This one was a combined effort from me and my baby sister who is now six. We made a sparkly one, but you could do this with lots of other options, like lace, yarn, or regular embroidery floss.

You'll need:
Mini spools - these are 1/2" and were found in the wood section at Hobby Lobby
Metallic floss
Craft glue
Ball-chain necklace

Mini Spool Necklace

Glue one end of a piece of floss onto a spool. Let it dry. Depending on the age of your child, you may want to do this ahead of time for them.

Let your child wrap the floss around the spool, then secure the end with some more craft glue. The wrapping doesn't have to be perfect, because it's nice with a little character, right?

Once the glue has dried, thread the spools onto the chain necklace, and it's ready to wear!

Not only are these fun and easy to make, they make pretty little gifts for ladies of all ages!

    Mollie,

    You always come up with the greatest projects. I love your site! Did you have any Fish and Chips in England - they're the best.
