I cant tell you how many times I go digging in my sewing box and find all of the spools of thread twisted together! This project is going to make your sewing days a dream cruise...well, something like that. It's cute, cheap, and keeps you organized and I love organized.

Step 1: What You Will Need:

What You Will Need:
-Cork Board
-Toothpicks (notice mine are little umbrellas. Hey, do what you can with what you have, right!)
-Measuring tape or ruler
-Marker or Pen
-A nail or pin to hang it up
Nice! I know what my mom is getting for Mother's Day :-)
Oh, so cute! I am definitely making something like this to go in my new crafting area.
What a brilliant idea for all those who sew. I love this idea and will trying out myself.
So much better than digging through my basket and swearing each time! :) thanks. Will do like fcnails and add my matching bobbins, too!
<p>Perfect for seeing the thread you need. I used finishing nails on mine. If I have a matching bobbin, I store it under the thread. Thanks for the idea!</p>
OMG I really needed a thread holder, and my kids didn't take the not so subtle hints the last couple of Xmases!! Love your idea, but how did your toothpicks hold up?
Great idea, I tried this and it makes all my thread much more manageable.
How brilliant. I just thought of a fun modification of this: <br> <br>A piece of scrap wood or similar wrapped in pretty fabric, using finishing nails as the pegs. How nice would that look in your sewing area?
