Photo Ornaments Day 6- A Spool Ornament

Happy 6th Day of Photo Ornaments!

Our fun ornament for today is patterned paper and a photo wrapped around a wooden spool. I added some punch out pieces to the spool ends and a button dangle.

You can use any size wooden spools for this, or even plastic spools, you just need to alter your measurements accordingly.
2" wooden spool from craft store
1 3/4 x 5" piece of patterned paper
2- 1 3/8" circle punch outs of patterned paper
1" circle punched from cardstock scrap
1 foot bakers twine
1 foot ribbon
6 buttons of various sizes
6" of wire
2x3 photo- trimmed to 1 1/2 x 3.


Punch a hole in the center of your 1 3/8" circle punch outs, glue to the ends of the spool.
Glue strip of paper around spool.

Tie an overhand knot in the end of the bakers twine. Thread buttons onto twine, from smallest to largest.

Tie twine under last button creating a loop.

Loop ribbon through twine loop, tie ends of ribbon together.

Bend wire in a V and use to thread ribbon loop up through spool center.
Add adhesive to button and adhere under spool.

Adhere photo to patterned paper, making sure you get adhesive under all edges. Write date on 1" circle punch out and glue onto spool.

Thanks! Have fun and Happy Holidays!
