Well luckily there are plenty of fun and creative things that can be done with thread spools! I actually like to collect vintage wooden spools just for thread spool crafts.
My favorite thing to make are little shabby chic photo holders.
I have actually made these for my store as well to use as wedding table number holders.
Here are some other creative ideas that I have found:
Wooden Spool Wine Corks by A Beautiful Mess
This craft actually uses homemade spools but you could instead use your own leftover thread spools or collected vintage spools. How often do you have just a small amount of thread left on your spool that you just know won’t be enough to finish a project?
Vintage Spool Hooks by Makezine
Thread spools make great looking pegs for a hanging rack. I used one in my hallway to hang this vintage receipt holder that I use for photos:
Thread Spool Nest by Just Something I Made
This little thread spool nest is so adorable and makes a perfect rustic decor accent for pretty much anywhere.
Spool Napkin Ring Place card by Lauren Elise Crafted
I like how this thread spool doubles as a napkin ring and place card.
Rustic Fishing Pole by Made By Joel
And finally, for kids, I thought this fishing pole was a super cute idea! The wooden thread spool makes a perfect reel.
What ideas do you have for thread spool crafts? I would love to hear your ideas!
