I made this spool necklace from three mini-wooden spools (3/4" long) and two smaller spools (1/2" long) that I painted brown and slightly distressed with sand paper.
What you need
I glued abstract printed fabric onto the spools.
I created a tassel with some sock yarn that had the appearance of embroidery floss.
I covered my gathering knot with a small piece of the fabric.
The spools are strung on 20″ of copper-tone chain.
Take the spools with you to the craft store to buy some chain that will fit through the holes in the spool.
The necklace is a useful way to use up some of those fabric scraps you have laying around.
Hmmmm, I’m thinking the smaller spools alone would make a cute bracelet.
