5 thread cones for $1.00
For $1.00 I thought I couldn't go wrong.
This is a picture of one wall of my craft room (this is a rare photo of a clean space).
I thought that the addition of the thread cones to the top of my antique cubby would fit right in with my mother's Singer featherweight sewing machine and the other sewing notions I had displayed.
I found three cute black numbers that I purchased at a thrift store awhile back and added them to the thread cones with simple straight pins.
Here's what the top of the cubby looks like now (I elevated the 2nd thread cone with a lid from one of my silver sugar bowls).
I really like how this simple project finished this area off.
I decided to play around with my remaining two cones using fabric. I printed a letter "J" on fabric and cut it to size. I backed it with a colorful coordinating fabric, and with straight pins and some buttons, attached it to the cone. I finished it off with a ribbon and more buttons (I think three of these cones spelling out BOO will be a fun decoration for Halloween).
My last cone was used for one last Easter project. I found a vintage Easter image at The Graphics Fairy and printed it on fabric. I attached it with the straight pins and added a big, colorful bow to the top.
I found one of my silver bowls, placed the Easter thread cone in the bowl and added some paper shreds and a matching egg.
I had so much fun creating with these cones that I ran back to the thrift store and bought all the cones they had! You will probably be seeing ideas for every holiday.
