These drawer pulls:
Cool, thank you, but I have so many more spools that drawers that might need new pulls. Please help me out and keep thinking. :-)
Here is something cute: A photo holder! http://www.designsponge.com/2010/09/diy-project-ashleys-wooden-spool-photo-holders.html
I like it, I like it, please keep them coming since I have LOTS of wooden spools. :-)
use them as candle holders!!
Do you have any friends that are wood carvers? They are great for that. Definitely don't throw them away, a use will come up.
If you want to get rid of a few I would love to meet you some where and get them..Do you have alot of different sizes????I use to have some that I put candles in as candle holders but I don't know what happen to them..
Shirley, you never contacted me re the Hellebore seedlings. Send me a message and we can decide to meet and swap seedlings and spools.
I've been contemplating making some sort of coat rack for my hallway, something for my grandkids to hang their coats and backpacks on. I was thinking maybe of using wooden spools, the bigger ones. Using screws longer than the heighth of the spool attaching them to a long board and then screw the board into the wall. Of course, it would have to be painted or decoupaged or something. Most wall coat racks have only 4 hooks and are around $20 for the cheaper ones. Money is an issue in this family.
I have a friend that has a bookshelf and the shelves are separated by towers of wooden spools. It is a triangular, corner shelf.
I've seen them made into christmas wreaths and ornaments,
Thanks to all of you, so many great ideas, and so many many spools. I have been using the ideas, and am working on making a chess game with some of them. :-)
I have seen them with short pieces of ribbon and trims wrapped around them and put into a large glass jars ---- my plan for mine!
Color/paint them and string them into a garland for your sewing area. Maybe put small colored bows or flowers between each spool.
I just saw an old stool with the legs made out of stacked, old wooden spools, very pretty!
I have used them for: hangers for everything from pot holders to hand towels and hats, toy truck wheels, planter legs (to add air under planter), mug racks, wind chimes no sound but pretty. But the best use I found was trivets!
how bout stringing them together to make for beads for babies.
I used mine for handles on my sewing table drawers.
@Pam Rice I love that idea! If I had a swing table, I would so so that!
I was looking for those to do crafts with and gave up looking. No one has any here.
