Product Highlight {Spools}

Hey there, it’s Lisa here on this crisp November day! Have you ever purchased an item for your crafty endevors but never got around to using it? I know silly question right ~ we ALL do that!!! I have a jar of wooden spools that are about to be rescued. Today I’m sharing a variety of ways to use them as a storage solution.  First up are these gorgeous shabby chic memo spools. A great way to use up snippets of favorite ribbons or trims and a pretty place to store notes or ideas!

Turning a spool into a sweet little pincushion keeps fancy pins and sewing needles close at hand. I see something like this in my future!

Ready for a touch of  happiness in a jar? Even a small spool can hold yard after yard of twine then be tucked neatly into a jar.

Larger vintage spools that can be found on Etsy, Ebay or specialty stores work beautifully for buttons or wrapping twines as well as hemp cording and jute. I love the idea of pretty scissors placed in the spool ~ decorative and handy!

Altering one end of the spool to be removable is a cute way to store and color coordinate your Washi Tape collection.

I’ve been inspire to put my neglected spools to good use I hope you have too! Don’t have any spools? Most stores such as Hobby Lobby, Michael’s and Joann carry them in large and small quantities. Archivers and other scrapbook stores usually stock Maya Road and Jenny Bowlin. And if you have a fondness for the vintage variety try Etsy, Ebay and antique stores they offer a great selection.

Thanks so much for your visit, we appreciate it!

  1. Love all of these ideas! Now I can use some of my vintage spools to display laces and other goodness. I like the idea of scissors in the top of a spool also. Thanks for the inspiration ~

  2. Email protection Most of the antivirus applications available offer email scanning.
    Another solution is to use an algorithm for your passwords.
    And when it comes to security, most business owners would be willing
    to pay a good amount to keep their businesses, information and data
    secure.

  3. The place has also got the country’s fastest and tallest “flying” coaster, in which
    the riders get suspended face down in harnesses towards the ground.
    I was happily turning every aspect of my life around
    and experiencing success and joy in everything I
    did-except THIS. 9 – George and the Dragon (2004) has
    some fun moments, and is worth a look.
