I covered the two spools with some burlap that I simply stitched in place.
These spinning necklace displays were easy to make. I bought two four dollar ball-bearing-spinny-things from the hardware store and screwed each one to a circle of plywood. I drilled a hole in the center of the plywood circles and fed a threaded rod through the wood with a nut on the underside to keep it in place.
Then it was just a matter of feeding the wooden spool onto the threaded rod....
Next, I put the vintage wheel onto the rod...
Then added another screw and tightened that to keep everything together.
I kept the threaded rod long on purpose to help hold the finial on each piece. This finial is my favorite....
Here are my two new spinning display pieces.
I like to tie a ribbon around each spool to keep the necklaces from getting unruly while being transported.
