The Spinning Wheel is an enchanted object which, when touched the spindle, will send its victim (in this case Aurora) into Eternal Sleep, originally death which was cast by Maleficent. The victim of the Eternal Sleep can only be revived by True Love's Kiss.
“Touch the spindle! Touch it, I say!”
The spinning wheel plays a major role in the film because it is used by Maleficent to cause her curse on Aurora to be completed. Since Maleficent wasn't invited to the baby's christening, she casted an evil spell upon Aurora that, before the sun set on her sixteenth birthday, she would prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die. This caused lots of grief and sorrow on the kingdom. So King Stefan orders that all spinning wheels be burned. Sixteen years later, Maleficent hypnotizes Aurora and she transforms herself into the Spinning Wheel (or conjures it). Aurora pricks her finger and falls asleep. Maleficent then captures Prince Phillip so he can't break the spell, but the Three Good Fairies manage to rescue him. Moments later, he battles and kills Maleficent and kisses Aurora which revives her.
