They make really cute Christmas tree ornaments. Glue ribbon, pictures, beads anything that looks like Christmas.

I have a bag full of old wooden spools - not the spools you find today - the old spools anywhere from 8-12 inches, some have the yarn/thread still on them & some don't. I'm looking for crafts to use them in.

Thanks for any help.

Use as feet on baskets, bird houses, or planters. There is the old strung-together spool doll with a round wooden bead head with painted on face.

The spools (plastic or wood) need to hold around 2 hundred feet of yarn or a little more.
