1 First decorate the empty cotton reels by sticking lengths of ribbon or embroidery thread around them. Washi tape will also look good. We used a glue gun to stick on the embroidery thread. Place a drop of glue on the reel, press the end of the thread into it and wind the thread around the reel. Stick the other end in place with another drop of glue when the reel is full.
2 Arrange all the cotton reels, mixing up the types, sizes and colours in an attractive arrangement. The easiest is to draw the wire frame’s shape on paper and to arrange the reels there first before attaching them to the frame.
3 Secure the reels to the frame with fishing line – thread the line through the hole in the middle and knot on to the frame. Use your glue gun to make sure the reels are firmly attached to the frame and each other.
4 Hang up the wreath with ribbon.
