Two Hand Carved Vintage Wooden Spools - Santa - Tree:
This listing is for 2 hand carved vintage wooden spool ornaments.
When I select the large spools, the first thing I do is to stabilize one label with Mod Podge. The labels are the most delicate part of the spool and they add a wonderful touch of history to the item. (When was the last time you paid 29 cents for a spool of thread?)
The I decide what I am going to make and lightly do a free hand sketch on the spool. Then I carve each spool using hand tools and lightly sand them. They are painted with acrylic paint and when that is all dry they are varnished. I add a loop of ribbon so that they can be hung on your tree.
In addition to ornaments for their own trees, some folks use these as package add-ons, so that the recipient has a special ornament too.
These are terrific gifts for people who do a lot of sewing or folks who collect spools. Anyone will like them.
