Wishing Spool
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Forget about postage to the North Pole. When kids roll their wish lists onto these cute-as-a-button spools, Santa will snap to attention.

What you'll need

  • Acrylic paint and brush
  • Wooden thread spool
  • Marker
  • Paper strip, cut to fit the width of the spool
  • Double-sided tape
  • Ribbon
  • Self-sticking label

How to make it

  1. Paint the spool and let it dry.

  2. Have your child write her Christmas list on the strip of paper.

  3. Roll the paper around the empty spool, using double-sided tape to fasten it, and leave some of the list hanging down (so Santa notices).

  4. Thread the ribbon through the spool's center and tie a knot at the top for hanging. Write your child's name on the self-sticking label. Affix it to the ribbon.
