I have an abundance of thread. My spool holder overflows into baskets and jars. I've thought of constructing another one for awhile… one of my ideas involves sticks and branches. To see how it might work, I began with a birch branch from the kindling pile. Who doesn't love a good birch branch?
I just hammered in a few nails and distributed them fairly evenly, but took into consideration knots and bumps on the wood. Each nail is angled up slightly, since I knew it would be propped vertically. What a great way to organize and display a small collection of spools. Next I'll try something a little more complex that holds a lot more- like my store bought holder… only with sticks from my yard!
