Victorian Chrismtas Spools

Hello! Today I am sharing some more of my homemade Christmas decor with you.  I made these spools from recycled paper towel holders.  I covered them with text and designer papers.  The tops and bottom are die cut from recycled cereal boxes and then painted with white acrylic paint.  I added the angel and Santa images from The Graphic Fairy.  I just love her images!  I added some glitter to the angel wings, some tinsel ribbon, silver twine and jingle bell, and flowers on the tops of the spools.
Super fun to make and they look perfect in my shabby chic dining room!

Thanks for stopping by,

Emily
