Eh...What's up Doc?

That is exactly what I feel like saying when I see these! I know, I'm a total nerd! I'll show you how I made them...

I pulled the spindles off of this old head board.
As you can see I did it VERY carefully!;)

Then, I gave them a coat of a fun orange colored paint. Then I sanded them up a bit.

Next, I added a sprig of green floral to the top with hot glue.


Then, I tied them off with a little green ribbon.

That's it!


Now, if only I could decide where to put 'em.

I know I'm placing them on my piano...

Should I put them in a jar or strewn about? Where would you put them? In the TRASH is not an option!

  4. Wow! These are great! I am now in a panic because my dh has been using some spindles that I've been saving for a project (when I figure out what to do with them some day!) for stakes to hold trees up! They are from an old crib that fell apart! I sure hope they are still there, because this is great!
