The Mister got me this dry erase board for Christmas, and it was just a bit plain. I had the perfect place to hang it right between my giant bulletin/magnet board and the door to my sewing room, but I wanted to jazz it up a bit first. I thought of one of the first things I pinned on Pinterest when I joined it a couple of years ago and decided to do something similar. So I pulled out some spools that were leftover from various other projects and got to work.
I decided that since it’s ‘beginning to look a lot like Christmas,’ it was time to bust out a Christmas-themed project. So I came up with the idea of making these thread spool ornaments. The project began simpler than it finished up, though. Originally, I was just going to make a Santa ornament…but then he seemed lonely, so I made him 2 elves. Then I decided they were incomplete without Rudolph…and then I decided that 4 ornaments were enough for now!
When I saw the rusted old sewing machine base/frame as I left an antique store earlier this month, I knew I would buy it the next time I was there and crossed my fingers that no one else would have bought it in the meantime!
