DIY Spool Necklace

May 19, 2012

This spool necklace is super easy and takes no time at all! I shared it at Through the Eyes of the Mrs. yesterday, in case you missed it!
Let's get started...

Supplies:
Medium-sized wooden spools ($1.99, Joann)
Embroidery floss
Chain (stolen from an old necklace!)
Metal jump ring
Elmer's glue


1. Start by wrapping your thread around the spool.
2. Finish wrapping and make sure it is as tight as possible.
3. Slide a jump ring over the thread and glue the rest of the thread down tightly (spread the glue across the thread with your finger)
4. Slide your chain through the jump ring, and you're done!

What do you think?
xo, Kate

Super cute--and I love the color!

Skylar Magazine said...

Steph you took the words right out of my mouth. That's the first thing that popped into my head when i saw this post -super-cute and it looks and sounds so easy. I'm just wondering, how big should the chain be for this? I have a really thin silver chain that doesn't have a pendant on it, I'm wondering if I could use that, or do you think the spool might be too big or too heavy for it?

Awesome post, I'm very inspired!

Diana said...

Amazing idea! I like it. (:

Kelly Snow said...

I'm so glad this is more than just "here, slap a jump ring on a spool". I'm glad you included where to get the spool and that you put embroidery thread on it, not just plain cotton thread. Good job. I love it.
