ombre vintage spool necklace

This is a vintage spool that I had in my supplies. I wanted a necklace and this is what I came up with. I used embroidery thread and Mod Podge.

I put Mod Podge on the spool and wrapped it with the different colors of embroidery thread.

Once the thread was wrapped around the spool, I added a layer of Mod Podge on top of the thread. Here’s how it looks. My photos were taken at night, when I didn’t have a model available. So I used our model head. I know, she’s a little strange. She was even more strange on the top of our Christmas tree this past year. That’s the kind of family we are. Just a little off. Anyhow, here’s the necklace. I can’t wait to wear this!

    That’s really cute! I’ve got an empty spool I’ve been wondering what to do with, you’ve answered that! Plenty of embroidery floss, too. Really novel idea for ombre craze.
