Learn to make these cute mason jar twine holders. It's a great way to organize your craft room using items you already have (plus a few extras from the hardware store).
Update: I would like to address the two biggest questions I've received regarding this project:
Question #1. Where did I get the daisy lids? I have included three links on my blog where you can purchase them. One link takes you to gold ones, one takes you to silver ones, and another takes you to a link selling the lids with the jars. http://www.acasarella.net/2013/03/mason-jar-...
Question #2. Does the thread get tangled as you pull different strands through? So far the answer is no. And by "no" I mean that you can keep pulling strands through the lid and they all come out smoothly and uninterrupted. They do, however, seem to get twisted around one another. The twisting does not seem to be an impediment, though, as the strands still come through the holes just fine.
I don't know if this is because of the washers I put between each spool or if there's some other reason it's working for me, but I have almost completely unraveled a few of the spools in order to test it out. I hope it works as well for all of you!
A friend of mine was giving this away, and when I came to pick it up I could see why. The table was scratched, absolutely filthy (which took forever to clean because of the carving) and
it weighed a thousand pounds. It took three people just to get it in the car! Once it was cleaned up I painted it with aqua DIY chalkpaint, glazed it with a brown paint mixture, shined up the hardware, and coated it in clear wax. I might be keeping this bad boy simply for the fact that no one will be able to lift it out of here! I think this aqua table looks pretty good right where it is!
