Empty Thread Spools

By March 5, 2009

Follow me on:

Check out this post on the Family Crafts Forum made by a visitor named Stish:

"I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on crafts that I could make with all my empty thread spools.I do a lot of sewing and have the wooden and plastic spools. Has anyone seen wind chimes made from spools?"

Can you help Stish out? I am going to do some brainstorming and searching around and will post anything I come up with. If you can help her out, please take a moment to read the entire post and post a reply.

Spools for Christmas trees. Start with one for the bottom (stem) and then build up from a base of 5/6 like laying bricks. You can roll ribbon around the spools to give color.

Spools for dolls. Round ball for hands and feet and then spools for arms and legs. You can use an especially large spool for the body or a block of wood or even stuff a “form”. Same for head.

Spools for snakes. Paint/ribbon the spools and thread cording to connect the spools. Head can be wood, etc.

Spools for trivet. Years ago, in Girl Scouts, we would take wooden spools and glue them together to make a trivet. Some moms had them for years!

Viagra is priceless as its manufacturers acquire to bear the payment of getting the panacea researched upon, put ready money in its casting and marketing and later expend heavily on notify marketing scrutiny to be intelligent give reaction of this drug in the market.
