This was a little experiment that I did and I think it was successful!
This is 50 different sized wooden spools glued onto a wooden wreath frame. The frame is wrapped with different colored thread so that the edges aren't so stark. The spools are glued one by one with very strong wood glue.
It was quite a puzzle getting them onto the frame but I didn't have to cut down a single one.
Some of the spools have origional thread, some thread you can tell is rewound by hand and some are bare. Brands of thread visible Coats and Clark's, Belding Corticelli, Talon, and Star. Some have had paper lables removed with some traces of paper left, others are stamped into spool itself.
All spools are various shades of wood and various ages. Most came from my grandmothers old sewing drawer.
Since this was an expiriment a couple show the glue from the side (see last photo) but not many.
I hope you like this, as of now this is the only one, if people like it I might make more. Would look great hanging in a sewing room!
Wreath is just over 12" in diameter. Saw tooth hanger on back. Weighs 1 pound 11 oz.
Color appears a little brighter on screan than in person (at least on my screen).
Thanks for looking and please convo with any questions!
