A little while ago I came across an awesome project while browsing Pinterest. Debi from Debi’s Design Diary had cut and refashioned spindles and parts from furniture to make the coolest Christmas ornaments. I loved the concept and wanted to make some of my own. In this post I’ll be sharing How to Make Christmas Ornaments using Spindles.
I gathered all of the extra chair and table parts and leftover pieces of posts, and started cutting and putting together different pieces, until I thought they would make neat ornaments. This is what I came up with after cutting and piecing them together with wood glue.
I sanded and painted the spindles different colors.
This ornament is just a spindle of a little rocking chair, no cutting or gluing this one.
This was a combination of table leg pieces and a chair spindle. I painted this blue, then white, then pink.
This ornament was also a combination of table leg parts and a chair spindle. It was layered with blue, white, and blue again.
This ornament was pieces of the posts I’ve been repurposing from our house. It was painted green, white and then green again.
I bought a little pack of eye hooks from Lowe’s for a little over $1, and screwed the hooks into the tops of the ornaments.
Then I threaded red embroidery thread through the eye hooks and tied a knot to make a loop.
What do you think of these Christmas ornaments? These spindles were like putting together a puzzle without a picture to go by, but that’s what made it fun!
Thank you for sharing How to Make Christmas Ornaments using Spindles!!
