DIY Thread Holder

I have been buying frames when I find a good deal at the thrift store. Art doesn't understand why we need all these frames. I always say this is a good deal I will use it. Well here is one I used. I wanted to make a peg board to hold all my thread in my craft room. I bought the peg board and wooden dowel for about $6 at Lowe's. I picked up the frame below with the lovely painting for $1.98 at the thrift store. Look at my DIY thread holder. I LOVE it!!!! So much easier to find all my thread!




I traced the peg board out using the frame as my pattern, then we cut the peg board with the electric saw. I measured 2 inches along the entire wooden dowel and cut them with the multi-tool. I used the electric sander to smooth all the edges and ends of the dowels.

Finished result!!!



Pin It!

This is a good idea - the store-bought ones can be kind of pricey and aren't nearly as cute.
