So I am attempting to create from my stash and what a perfect time to destash some of my wooden thread spools.  I have have some of these for over 25 years. Lol.  So when I joined the altered heart swap got 2 partners each with different color choices I decided the perfect way to destash.  So here are both one aqua one purple.  The heart is about 12 inches in size and I used the spools full of thread around the outer edge filled in the gaps with empty spools just some e6000.  Of course I painted each wood  heart base front and back first. After all the spools were glued down I added buttons, charms, fabric yo-you and other doo dads.  These were glued as well.  The perfect bow was ribbon and rick-rack!

I loved seeing these in the swap and love seeing them again. What a great concept. What is the overall size of these goodies?

I am guessing about 12 inches by 10 inches.  Wood came from Michael's. 6.99 I think but used 40 % off coupon.  It was not valentine wood just there normal shaped wood.  I wish I would have taken a photo of them sideways and if I did with my camera, I think I may have, I will update this later.  The thread spools are various sizes so it is also very dimensional.

I didn't realize till my second look that you had added buttons onto the tops!  You certainly don't do anything halfway!!!!!

Buttons, sewing snaps, large sewing needle, sewing bobbins, covered buttons, yo-yo's, rhinestones.  Super fun and easy.

Now I need to be on the lookout for more wooded spools with thread for some coworker gifts next Christmas.  They fell in love too!

These are AMAZING! I'm so mad though because last time I moved I think I got rid of the box of spools I had. Ugh!
