What can I do with plywood rounds from wire spools?

Answered
Someone gave me about 25 wire spools that have plywood on each end (the round part) and cardboard centers. My husband took them apart and made our daughter a shoe rack out of the cardboard centers (instead of vinyl pipe). Now we have all these round pieces and I want to repurpose, craft, recycle them! I made some look alike vinyl records to decorate our older daughter's wall but I still have lots of them!! Help!!

    You could make a clock, a snowman, or Santa Claus.

    Look right here on hometalk under repurposing plywood spools there are many posts for you to get ideas.

    I took them and put legs on them and positioned a tire on top and made planters for the yard

    :)Thank you everyone! My daughter gave me a great idea also! The plywood rounds have a hole in the center and are perfect to glue/fasten together to make my grands a rope swing! I am going to paint each one of the three a bright color and glue together with wood glue and make a rope swing. I even have the perfect limb hanging over our yard to the south!! Maybe even make some for the grands at their own homes.

    If you have the whole spool or access to something for legs, you can use either way to make a picnic table. With the hole in the middle ( if used outside ) add an umbrella that has a long leg/pole and use that to shade people at the table.

    Thank you Bill!! I knew Hometalk folks would come to my rescue! These rounds are about 20" across...believe they would make for some nice tables outside around my firepot. I never thought of tables because they were small rounds. Overthinking on my part.

    Paint ornate mandalas spray with clear coat. Put legs on them for bistro table or wall hanging.
