I have a few dozen wooden spools of thread. Any idea what I can do with them? I wanted to try and make a wreath, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Any suggestions?

I didn't make this, I found it in a thrift shop for $5.00 and I needed to share. I think it is about the cutest thing I've seen and I couldn't pick it up fast enough. This would also be cute if it were made with spools that still had thread on them. You could paint each spool with ModPodge and it would be colorful and cute. The spools get smaller at they go up and I think a thin, threaded post is slipped down through the holes in the spools and holes that were drilled in the shelves. The top and bottom is fastened with a small nut, but I think if I were to make one, I would hide the nut on the top by glueing on a wooden bead or another spool with the bottom carved.

Love that! Saw one like it in an antique shop the other day. I think making a little table or shelf is a great idea. I think it would be just as cute with the spools in their natural color and with thread still on!

That is a great idea! I never would have thought to use them that way. This is my first post on this site and it's awesome to get some feedback. Thanks!
