STOP! Don’t toss your empty thread spools. Make this adorable wreath instead

Every once in a while, I think it’s fun to challenge ourselves to do something new and different. I wanted to make this Baby Carrot Wreath Tutorial for Spring out of supplies that I already had and really challenge myself.When I started browsing through my craft room, I really wasn’t sure and had no clue I would end up with lots of baby carrots. But now here we are, and I just love it. I love that every supply that was used for this wreath was something I already had on hand and put to good use. There is something about the joy of being thrifty!

My grandmother is always sewing and ends up with tons of these empty spools that once held tons of thread. I have been hanging on to them not knowing exactly what I would use them for. Then I knew that they would be the perfect baby carrot for a Spring wreath.

First paint one end of each spool orange and the other end green. It is just much easier this way then having to wrap the yarn on the ends.Cut out small circles of orange and green felt. You can go ahead and measure and cut your green pipe cleaners as well.Glue the felt circles to the corresponding ends of the spools.Cut a tiny slit through the middle of the green felt circles and push the pipe cleaners through the center of the spool.Start wrapping the orange yarn around each spool until you have it completely covered and as thick as you like. Glue the end of the yarn to the spool.After all your carrots are attached, you can now hang your wreath and enjoy all Spring and Easter.
