Decorating With Wooden Spools

Hello friends, is anybody else as crazy about wooden spools as I am???
We have an old wooden spool in our backyard that I found on Craigslist a while back. 
Each season I decorate it a bit different and it adds rustic charm to our otherwise
BLAAAHHHH cement patio in the backyard. 

I have been finding many gorgeous images of wire spools all over blog-land 
and Instagram. I now have a large Pinterest board on wire spools and I think 
I need to share the spool goodness!

So I put together a post with some of my favorite"WOODEN SPOOLS". 
So here ya go sweets...I hope you will get one after seeing these pictures!

Word gets around, old wooden spools ROCK!!! 
I want more spools now, how about you???

  7. Hello Christine!
    Great spool ideas!
    I saw your comment on my blog just now ..sorry for the late answer.
    I can see you have three of my photos here already :) Thanks for sharing!
    But the first one of my photos you have here is incorrectly named and linked, it says 'DIY Bastelideen' tho it is my pic (the 6'th photo from top). Please name it correctly and link to my blog. Thanks :)
    (I followed the link and saw two of my photos there on ..)
