1  Mounted Thread Holder Display in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by PumpkinTaylor on: July 24, 2012 07:03:24 PM
I moved recently and was trying to decorate my new sewing room. I purchased three thread holders (one for my standard spools, one for my bobbins, and one for my large serger cones). To utilize my space I opted to hang them on my walls. First I painted the holders gold then I mounted them (with Gorilla Glue) onto some mirrors that I was going to throw out.

I think they make a pretty neat functional art installation and cant wait to have them filled with some fun colored threads!

*Other ideas for this type of wall hanging could be to mount the holders onto canvas (painted or fabric covered).
 
*ALSO I would advise you to use spray paint instead of a paint brush...Hand painting was sooooo time consuming!
