Are you looking for a quick Christmas ornament idea? Well, have I got the project for you. Turn our 1-1/2″ Wooden Spools into a Christmas Wish List to hang on your tree. All you need is some red paint, ribbon or twine, and a Christmas List that you print out from your computer.
The fun thing about the list is, you could make it your child’s actual list and put the year on the bottom and make one each year…how cute would that be?!
All you need to do is paint your spool red, I chose to use Santa Red. This may take two coats for total coverage, but remember that the paper will cover the majority of the spool, so don’t worry too much. I then typed up a Christmas List on my computer and printed it out…I just made sure to have a bit of extra space between the items for easier reading. I then trimmed the paper to be 1-1/2″ wide and approximately 4″ long. Then I just glued them into place making sure to leave some of the list hanging down. The finishing touch is to thread some ribbon or twine through the ends and you are good to go.
A fun and easy ornament that can be completed in no time at all and will look adorable hanging on your Christmas tree!
Happy Painting and Merry Christmas!
