Here's another look at this project. You can see I wrapped patterned paper around the spools for the "thread." Then I added stickers, die cuts, and fibers to further dress up each spool. You can stack them or make one or two. This would be a quick and easy craft to do with kids. Just use a strong adhesive to hold the paper onto the spools.
