Spools Of String, Twine And Thread

At the hardware store today I came across a bin full of twine. What caught my eye were the fun colors. I was tempted to buy a couple just to put in a bowl and set it on the dining room table. Spools of string, twine or embroidery thread can provide some fun craft projects or simply be appreciated as they are.

Skip the oranges and buy twine. Wouldn’t these be great in a big wooden bowl?

Hang a spool of twine above a workbench or potting table where you can reach it.

A simple package made special by the addition of red and white twine.

In place of a vase try using a pile of embroidery spools and slipping in a test tube to hold flowers.

I’d love to try this- a vintage spool of twine made into a lamp.
