I used to have a thread spool holder that I bought at an estate sale - it was small and didn't hold all that I wanted/needed it to. I looked into buying a holder, but you know how "thrify" I am - I didn't want to waste valueable crafting funds on a boring thread holder. And then I saw some pegboard at a garage sale and found my solution - make one!
I then clamped it down to hold it while it dried. I'm not sure this was necessary, but I thought it would make a good picture and seem like I knew what I was doing.
Now, I wish I would have taken my ta-da final pictures outside, but I didn't, so you get the ones from my poorly-lit craft room - but trust me, it looks GREAT!
I LOVE it - especially the pop of color that the trim gives it. And there's more than enough room now - looks like I need to buy some more thread.....
