Etceteras: branch spools

I still have some branches left in our yard trimming pile.


I’ve made several projects with them including this photo holder and wood tacks.


I love the texture of these branches and wanted to use them for a new project. I came up with these branch spools for my twine.



I sawed sections of the branch into ¼ inch slices. I used a hand saw because I haven’t mastered power tools and maybe never will.


I glued a dowel to the inside of the branch slices to create a spool.


 Pretty decorative spools that combine two of my favorite things - natural wood and twine.
