Repurpose a Cork Bulletin Board Into a Thread Organizer

Repurpose a Cork Bulletin Board Into a Thread OrganizerIf you sew you probably have an abundance of spools of thread. If you'd like to keep your various colors of thread not only handy but on display you can turn a standard cork bulletin board into a thread organizer by hammering toothpicks into the board at an angle.

DIY blogger Korrine Wojcik on her weblog DIY Projects came up with the idea after too many times digging around in her sewing box for the right thread. All you need to do is take a tape measure or ruler and a permanent marker and make dots where you plan on hammering in the toothpicks—the author started 3 inches below the border and made a dot every 2 inches. Then hammer a toothpick into each dot at a slight angle so the spools of thread won't fall off the mounted board. Mount the board to your wall and add the spools and you're finished.

If you only sew to repair a hole or replace a button this project may not be for you but if you sew at least every month or so you should find that it saves time finding thread and by being in plain sight it is a motivator to get started on your next project.
