Thread Spool Wine Corks

I got this DIY here from one of my favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess. However, mine turned out a little differently because Hobby Lobby didn't have the same spool sizes as was used in the other project.
I started off by putting a small piece of double sided tape on the spool to keep the embroidery thread in place.
I then began wrapping the thread around the spool.
Once I was finished I went back around. This time I didn't cover it as tightly as the bottom later, but I thought going back around gave it more of an authentic look.
I forgot to mention this in the supplies but I put a small dab of Elmer's glue on the end of the thread and rubbed it in so that it would dry clear.
Next, I put a bit of wood glue on top of the spool and then attached the cork. The glue dries pretty quickly.
Ta-da!
Use them to close open wine bottles or just display them on empty bottles! They are super easy and cheap to make as small gifts for someone!
