Got this big bag full of tiny spools of white thread at Every Husband’s Nightmare Bazaar last month.
My first project with them was to mount my tiny white bottle brush trees to some of them; and some of my bigger brush trees to bigger spools. Still had a LOT more spools to use up.
While I was sorting through them to select the sizes to use for the tree bases, I noticed I had quite a few in graduated sizes that looked like tiny snowmen!
So I started rummaging through my supplies to see if I could find something to make into hats for them. Found these tiny wood spools and wood discs that were the perfect size!
I found some small buttons and glued those on. Picked the orange sprinkles out to use for noses and VERY carefully glued them in place. (they crumble very easily!)
A very QUICK dot with a DecoColor pen for the eyes. And even though I made the dot super fast, the ink still bled a tad.
Glued the spools and wood discs together and painted them black. Glued the in place as hats. (there’s one of the ones where the eyes bled. sigh.)
It’s a bit too late in the season to put these out for sale, so I’ll set them aside for next year. Maybe use them in front of some little Puts houses?!?
