- craft wood spool or a real vintage one (if you don’t mind adding glue to it; I just couldn’t get myself to do that to my old ones)
- embroidery thread
- glue dots
Order of events:
- Place glue dots on side of spool from top to bottom where thread would normally be wound (I used 3 dots; it’a hard to see in this photo, the next few are better to see the dots)
- Wrap thread around spool making sure to go over tail. Cut thread just past the last glue dot; press thread hard into glue dot to keep thread from coming undone.
- String bell.
- String spool followed by beads. Tie knot to keep beads from moving. Tie another knot to form hanger; done. The red and green tails haven’t been cut yet in these photos.
Tails are cut in this last photo.
