    This is pretty cleaver in deed

    I've been trying to find a use way to repurpose thread spools. I came across this picture, I think it's cute. What do you do with your thread spools?

    These ideas are so cute. I use Aurifil thread and it doesn't come on a regular spool, just a skinny thing in the center. I love the use of the buttons, too.

            I have some thread from my grandmother, it is wound on wooden spools which you will not find today. I can't use the thread, too old. I was just thinking about doing something with them today, but somehow leaving on the thread? Wonder if you could varnish it some way, or Elmer Glue the spool? I also have a box of old buttons, some from my Great Grandmother. Another project, somewhere down the line!

                  I save my plastic spools, even though they aren't pretty as the wood one, to make a wreath/garland some day

                    My mother made these and I display them at Christmas. However, I decided to keep them up this year. They are yo yos on a small wooden dowel. She sprayed the spools. Her old wooden ones, she has left the little bit of thread on them and they are displayed in her sewing room.

                      Yes it is, I am trying to get to the information on it. The post said it was a quilt along, but I'm having trouble finding it. I'all keep looking. I really like it.

                        I have a couple of old hankies from my MOM, but I bet I can find more. Post the pattern if you can find it, Please. Sharon

                          As for my spools, I toss them. I am trying desperately to de-clutter. After having to empty my mother's house after a flood, I'm trying my hardest to minimalize. Can't claim that I am succeeding yet, but still trying.

                            I have an antique jar filled with wooden spools. I also have them threaded on a string and hang on a hook over my sewing table.

                            you could use them as legs under a box make a pretty storage container.
                            Display them in a glass bowl with old scissors or other sewing items.
                            Paint them red and green with gold and hang them on a Christmas tree
                            or paint them pastel colors for an Easter tree

                            I use an older small spool and stick inside a thread cone. It works as an adapter so I can use cone thread on my regular thread holder on my sewing machine.

                            When my grands were little I saved them and gave them a big bunch to play with. Zach loved to throw them in the air and let them rain down.

                            You could use them in crafts in many ways. I'm sure there are lots of ideas on Pinterest
