craft project number 9.

thread stand picture frame.

i recently brought home a book on simple, handmade crafts for the beginner sewer. one of the projects was a gorgeous vintage picture frame that was turned into a thread stand, holding a couple dozen spools of thread. i immediately thought ‘i want to create that’. however, it then got shelved with my many other projects that i have on the go, and was temporarily forgotten.

this morning i made it my goal to completely empty out our spare bedroom, and to rearrange and redecorate it from the ground up. i subsequently found a number of old picture frames and instead of wasting them, i asked myself what i could possibly turn them into. that was when i suddenly remembered the thread stand.

here is the result of possibly the easiest craft that i have done this year. (the wonderful part is that i can add on to it as i accumulate more and more thread!)
