I got a cable spool from a guy laying cable in our backyard...and,
because I love thread so much... I decided to transform it by making a spool label. My inspiration is this spool that I used for a cabinet pull on my notion cabinet.
I drew my design and painted it with craft paint. I did this in an evening...it went very quickly.
I used tan Rit dye...just brushed it on...to color the spool. When that dried, I glued the thread label to the top of the spool. For the "thread" I wrapped paper ribbon around the spool....I had yards of paper ribbon that required a storage solution..
My dress form had been standing on the spool...so, I decided to use the spool as a stand for my dress form. All I had to do was to pull the dress form stand off of the pole, put the pole through the spool and then put the stand back on under the spool.
One might think this project is finished...but that was before Lisa saw it....I'll be making hers next. She wants it in black.
