Purple Reel Instructions

Create a spray of roses on one side of a wooden cotton reel in purple and white. Add small dots, then leave to dry. Cut a length of bakers twine and fold in half. Knot the end and thread the loop through a wooden bead. Slide the loop through the centre of the reel, then add a second bead. Secure the beads with a dab of glue and use the loop to hang.
