Kids Craft- Spool Ornament

I know it's only mid-October, but when an idea pops into my head, I have to act on it or it will be gone!
I was looking back at some photos of the spool garland that I made last year...
...and thought about how cute it would be for kids to make an ornament using the same idea. 

Here's how...
Cut a piece of paper that will fit around the spool and have your child draw a picture. You could use plain paper, paper from a book, or, in this case, sheet music.

Glue the paper to the spool.
 Paint 2 wooden beads...

Thread a bead, the spool, and another bead onto twine and tie a knot at each end.
Then add a bow and your ornament is ready to hang.

 This will make a keepsake that will be cherished
 for many years to come!
