I don’t know about you, but my Black Friday plans include more making than buying; if I find myself at the store today, it’s only because I had a serious craft supply emergency!  If you are crafting your way through your nice list as well, you might know a person or two who will appreciate this kid-friendly project from Mollie at Wild Olive.  She used tiny wooden spools she found at the craft store, but if you have small enough empty thread spools, those will work as well.  Or, if you prefer a bolder look, why not use big spools?  I think it’s time to dig out that shoebox full of spools I’ve been hanging onto for all of these years…  [how to make a mini thread spool necklace]

Project estimate:

  • Mini thread spools, $1 and up
  • String, on hand
  • Glue, on hand
  • Chain, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  $1 and up
