Wednesday’s Whip Up: Vintage Spools

Back in July, we took a trip to Folly Beach, near one of my favorite places – Charleston, SC. Hubby and I used to live there and I never get tired of the history, architecture, food and shopping!
While there my sister-in-law, Ilke, and I vowed to do some antique shopping. We took one afternoon and hit as many as we could in the ares outside of downtown. {Downtown’s antiques are WAY over our budget!} Here are some of my finds…

I found several vintage handkerchiefs, ribbons and lace. I had no idea what I would do with them, but I had to have them!

And I am a sucker for vintage spools.

Originally I was going to leave the spools the way the were and use them as candles sticks. But I had an idea the other day while I was trying to figure out where to put them.
I decided to wrap them in burlap and then use the vintage ribbon and lace on top of the burlap.

I used hot glue to secure the burlap on the backside. I did the same with the lace. The ribbon I just tied in a knot, tightly enough that it would not slip down.

I frayed the top and bottom of the burlap by pulling some of the horizontal threads out.

And that was it! Just something I whipped up on Wednesday!
