Tangled Floss Storage Idea

Hi blogland friends. I had to share one of my great treasures from last weekend. I came across this big basket full of old wood spools. The price was right so ... this was my plan, I have a lot of tangled floss leftovers from projects. Some time the numbers sleeve comes off and what do you do. I should probably throw it out, but I just can't. I thought it would be prim cute to wrap my excess floss on these old spools and put in a wooden bowl. I thought I'd share my progress. What do you think? If you don't like primitive stuff, you could decorate the ends of the spools with punched circles from cute scrapbook paper. It works for me.

Well ... I want to get started with my visits, so keep the creative mojo going, and drop by when you can. Hug, :o) P

Love those wooden spools....I have a bag full of them and was looking for a glass apothecary jar to put them in while Mr. Wonderful and I were out the other day.....the prices just wer not right so I will wait and see!

What a great idea! I have a bag of those stored somewhere, and that would be a perfect thing to use them for.
Thanks for the idea!
Take care!
