- A wooden board
- 3-5 small wooden rods (5 mm diameter)
- Dim black spray color
- Hole driller
- Small saw
Take a wooden board, the size of it depends on the amount of spools you have. Mine is approximately 20 x 35 cm. I just took a board from the "wood left overs section" in the diy store. Then count how many spools fit on the board. For mine I estimated a radius of approximately 3 cm for each spool, so I could fit 6 x 13 (= 78) spools onto the board.
Cut the rods in 78 pieces each with 7 cm length. Then, drill 78 holes in regular distance into the board. I drilled approximately 5-7 mm deep. Make sure the diameter of the holes fits exactly the diameter of the sticks, so you don't need a lot of glue to "anker" the rods in the bord.
After that, put a tiny droplet of glue into each hole and put the sticks inside. Let it dry overnight. Spray the whole arrangement with any desired color and let it dry! I chose black, because then, the thread colors look really bright!
Enjoy your well structured spools! :)
