Upcycling: Ribbon Spool Ornament

Don’t throw away those empty ribbon spools! You can make bracelets from them as well as many other things including Christmas ornaments! With Christmas right around the corner, this is an inexpensive and easy craft idea.

 

Supplies Needed:

*Empty ribbon spool

*Cardstock (design is your choice)

*Ribbon (ironically enough!)

*Hot Glue Gun (with glue sticks, of course!)

*Embellishments of your choice

*Pencil

*Scissors

 

 

Instructions:

*Step One – Trace around the empty ribbon spool with your pencil onto the back of your cardstock. Repeat this step so you will have two circles. Use your scissors to cut out these two circles.

*Step Two – Hot glue your cardstock to both sides of the ribbon spool and embellish as you choose.

*Step Three – Hot glue ribbon to the empty part of the ribbon spool and create a loop.

Tips/Ideas:

~Embellish project with gemstones, glitter, or anything else you like!

~Find Christmas cardstock with an image on it and simply embellish it!

~Peel the empty ribbon spool label (top layer only) off before gluing so the surface won’t be as slick.
