Ribbon Spool Ornaments
Next time you use up a spool of ribbon, save the spool. If you cut one of the paper tops off, you have a cool round space that can be embellished and made into a lovely shadow box style dimensional ornament.
The top one I made a circle of gathered tulle, glued a vintage earring to the middle and put it inside the circle. I glittered the outside and embellished it with some cool tinsel trim I had. The other one was painted aqua, then I arranged the white branches inside, then glued the snowman in the middle and finished it off with a wire edged chiffon bow. You could use a family photo, A vintage image, really anything could be put inside...Mini bottle brush trees, a piece of jewelry, Barbie shoes.... I could think of hundreds of things. If you have any ideas, please post them here.
