I think it’s safe to say that everyone can use some extra love this year. Though Valentine’s Day is coming quickly, there’s still time for you to create something special to give to your best girl friends or any other loved ones. You likely already have everything you need already at home to make these wooden spool valentines. I love making these because they can easily be put out on display on a shelf or workspace to serve as a little reminder that someone is thinking of you. Plus, who doesn’t love the fun of unrolling a secret message? These could even be adapted as a craft for your children to make!
Simply cut a length of paper (any kind works) that is the width of the flat part of your spool. Write your message on the paper, wrap it around your spool, and secure it with a bit of tape. Next, cut or tear another length of paper that is slightly smaller than the width of the previous paper. You can also use fabric in place of paper for this step. Wrap this around the spool. Tie string, torn fabric, or twine around this to secure everything in place. Tuck a dried flower or two in place.
