Vintage Spools

I love this time year when I can lug out the nature craft tub from the basement so I could start creating some pretty things for spring.  I've been hanging onto these vintage spools for awhile now, so I thought it was time to do something creative with them.  I painted the spools with  pretty colors and added some rub-ons and dyed ribbon.  I love bird nests, so those were added to the top of course.  The nests were kind of boring so I added some foliage, flowers, pebbles and glitter.  I might sell these on etsy, but I'm not sure yet!  :)  Thanks for looking!







Check out Debra's blog Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday.
