Who says that craft tools can’t be beautiful? When Mollie from Wild Olive came across this lovely antique spool of thread, she couldn’t help bringing it home. But, instead of displaying it on a shelf or hiding it away in a drawer, she used her lovely vintage find to create a unique necklace that she could wear anywhere!
Are your vintage spools collecting dust? Head over to her blog to see the complete tutorial, and make a necklace of your own!
