But wait there's more

I have made some more cotton reel tassels----some red and green ones for Christmas...............






Some pastel ones with a pearl trim..................






Some that are blue................................







All clumped together.






Altogether so far I have made about ten and I think I will stop now --well until I need more that is.

These all look stunning, I really must make some, I have some reels some where and you have reminded me how lovely they are.Are you interested in a swap, perhaps for a bird?

They are all beautiful Doreen and could be made to fit any occassion. Love the Christmas ones and white ones would be nice for wedding favours. Such a clever idea. We will all be on the look out for old wooden cotton reels now!

Hmmm, my old cotton reels still have some thread on them, perhaps I should wind it off..........Yours are stunning. Cheers

I can't imagine anyone not wanting one of these. They're simply gorgeous! I especially love the ones with the pearl trim. I think you've even surpassed yourself with these!

I have done similar ornaments. I like to personalize them for the people I am gifting. Over the years I have done Doctor Who, Alabama football, Minions, Mickie Mouse, Ren and Stimpy, along with 'generic' spools. I use both sizes of the spools. As for the embellishments, I use beads, charms, and other bits of sparkle. To answer the question as to where I get my images - being a graphic artist with access to large format laser printer doesn't hurt.
