Why? Because a handmade scarf looks super cute on a spool!
Why? Because I think this is the cutest way to present a handmade scarf or bunting that you've worked so hard on.

You'll need:

Cardboard Tube (depending on the size of your scarf or bunting, you can use a toilet paper roll, paper towel roll or poster tube)

Thick cardboard recycled from a box

Bowl for circle template

Exacto knife or rotary cutter


Cut the tube to the size you need for your scarf or bunting. Find a bowl that is the right size for the ends of your spool. Trace around the bowl on the thick cardboard to make a circle. With your tube, position it in the middle of the circle and trace around it. This will be your template for the other three circles you'll need. Cut out the circle and the center circle. Trace three more to match and cut out each.

Glue two circles together and repeat for the other side. Once they're dry, stamp something around the ends if you wish. Once your rings are dry, insert the cardboard tube. It may be a bit tight so you may need to cut a bit more off in the middle of the ring. Glue to secure.

I just love love love this project. I am a crafter that does quilting, sewing, cross-stitch, needlepoint and up-cycled projects. This is a very cute idea for even presenting someone with a gift of fabric strips for quilting. Warp them around the spool and use a bow like you did in the picture to secure it. thank you for posting this
