I found this wooden spool at Meijer. It was an ornament. I cut off the hanger and drilled a hole down the center. Wrapping some twine around the spool gave it a little more character.
Then I took a sprig of a glass bead pick from Michaels, and stuck it in the hole with a dab of glue.
The end result is a beautiful little tree.
It's large enough to be on my mantel. Maybe if the sunny shines tomorrow I can finally photograph my mantel. That would be so nice!
But in the mean time I was looking at Pottery Barn and I saw this tree, and it reminded me of my tree. Only it was $69, and mine was around $5. I like the rustic nature of mine better. Just sayin. . .
