Altered Spools Tutorial & Nook Winner


Photobucket
Erica from Your Scrapbook Stash sent me two Maya Road Wooden Spools to create something out of them. I love the spools alot... so... I decided to do something fun & interesting :)

Photobucket
This is what I have transformed the spools into... "flower pots" for my altered frame. The spools fitted perfectly for a garden theme. Those papers are from Lily Bee Designs - Picket Fence & mixture of Jillibean - Dutch Mustard Soup collection. I used chipboards by Maya Road - Green Thumb too :)

And I am gonna show you a simple tutorial how I created my "flower pots"...

Photobucket
I started with wrapping the wooden spool using the brown Maya Road satin pleat edging trim. Just go around it and remember to adhere glue as you go along.

Photobucket
Next, grab any scraps you have and twist them.

Photobucket
Stuff it into the hole and fill it. Apply glue before you stuff it too :)

Photobucket
Here I used Tim Holtz Memo Pins. Just poke it thru the scraps and you are done!

Here is a close-up shot of my altered frame with the "flower pots". Hope you like the tutorial!
