I worked on this project last night and this morning. There are still a few things I want to do to it but I don't have the things I need. I'll keep an eye out for some things and post more picture if/when I change it.
I have been given a lot of crochet thread. I have also bought alot at Goodwill. So, I decided that I wanted to use some of the rolls/spools that didn't have much thread left on. But I wanted to use the spools in a different way. This is what I came up with. It will hang off the wall or from the ceiling.
I painted some of the spools and then covered them with a copy of an old crochet pattern. The black spool has steel crochet hooks sticking out of it. A picture of my Great Grandma Smith is peeking out of one of the spools. I would like to add a small doll sitting in the larger empty roll.
The hanger is an old knob with a ball change threaded through it.
What do you think? I am really happy with it.
