Thread Spool Wine Corks

I got this DIY here from one of my favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess. However, mine turned out a little differently because Hobby Lobby didn't have the same spool sizes as was used in the other project.
I started off by putting a small piece of double sided tape on the spool to keep the embroidery thread in place.
I then began wrapping the thread around the spool.
Once I was finished I went back around. This time I didn't cover it as tightly as the bottom later, but I thought going back around gave it more of an authentic look.
I forgot to mention this in the supplies but I put a small dab of Elmer's glue on the end of the thread and rubbed it in so that it would dry clear.
Next, I put a bit of wood glue on top of the spool and then attached the cork. The glue dries pretty quickly.
Use them to close open wine bottles or just display them on empty bottles! They are super easy and cheap to make as small gifts for someone!


  1. This looks so cute! ... and much better with the smaller ones.

  2. These are awesome! You are so stinking crafty. BTW- I was thinking about you yesterday for your interview. Can't wait to hear how it went :)
