Escort Card Spools

Are you a crafty bride who WOWs her family + friends with seamless sewing projects? Or, perhaps you just love innovative ideas with POPS of color? Then, you’ll love this unique idea: escort card spools! Yes – spools! These escort card spools were spotted via Style Me Pretty (photographed by Minnow Park) and have positively stolen our hearts. Who knew colorful spools of thread could add such a whimsical punch of color to your palette?

These coordinate beautifully with the tablescapes, too. The bride did such a great job!

Another example that we mentioned before is an example by our friend and talented crafter, Lauren Elise Crafted, featured in her exclusive EB DIY entitled “Sew in Love” (where you can learn how to make your own).

I know – amazing, right? I love her take on using the wooden spools but utilizing fabric in lieu of thread and sewing the names instead of adding a tag. Perfect!

If you want to give the threaded version of the spools, here are a few tips to DIY at home:

DIY Tips for Escort Card Spools

It’s easy to handcraft your own. All you’ll need is stickers, paper, scissors, glue, a fine-point sharpie marker, and spools of thread in coordinating colors. The real trick to make this DIY pop is to use vintage, wooden spools to complement your palette. (This makes it look pulled together instead of a mash-up of crafting supplies go awry – just sayin’.) We found these vintage spools via Kelsey Drew (pink) or Finders4Keepers (blue) where we spotted these:

Place a sticker with the table number printed onto it (or hand-write with a sharpie marker) onto the top of each spool. Then, cut out pieces of paper into tiny flags, write guests names, and glue to the spool. Voila!

Happy Planning Crafting!
