I love the collection of vintage wooden spools in a variety of sizes.cheap Christmas decorationIt is an exciting treasure for me in antique stores. And I would like the challenge of projects supplied create with them incorporating my paper crafting! Especially if it’s with a small budget. I call it “cheap” but the look is definitely’t.Rather than use a dowel to hold my design in the coil I had some paper straws leftover from Halloween that perfectly matched the Kringle & co. collection of American Crafts (the sequins are very thick, so it works very well to hold something bulky on top).is My point, look at what you have around your home, you can incorporate them into holiday decor.
