Use Cone Shaped Thread Spools for Tabletop Christmas Tree

For those of us who sew and buy the large cone shaped spools of black and white thread, keep the empty spools. They make great tabletop Christmas trees for the holiday season. A glue gun and a little imagination goes a long way!


I've wound wild grape vine around the form, then glued green feathers or live holly leaves on top. Split acorn shells work well too as do dried split peas and silver cake decorating balls. This costs next to nothing, just a bit of time and imagination. This would be a great craft idea for kids too.
