Project #2 Spindle Art

As promised I have a second project for you this week. This one was inspired by something I saw on the HGTV Message board. Of course I modified mine a bit.

What is it you might ask? Well I consider it wall art. It's a collection of old spindles, in various shapes and sizes attached to each other in a hanging screen. These can be made as large or small as you like. I used eye hooks to attach the spindles to each other. I'd recommend not using the smallest eye hooks, but some that are a bit larger, with well spaced threads. The first ones I used pulled right out.

This one hangs in my booth at Winnie & Tulula's. I needed something for the tall empty white walls.

I'm also trying to show folks what they can do with spindles, as I've got lots for sale.

This is a smaller version I have at my booth at Our Little Corner in Noonday.

That could make a neat window treatment. You're very creative!

I love your spindle treatment. It would be great to visually divide a room or entryway if you hung it from the ceiling.
