I’m working on a project that requires 16 colors of embroidery floss. I decided to start with all new skeins to make sure I wouldn’t run out, so I was tickled pink to find a new way to store the leftovers once I’d finished with them. (Thank you, Pinterest! ♥) I think they look extra pretty in this bowl Greg made, don’t you? This concept also fits a new decorating strategy I adopted when we decided to downsize to a smaller home. Instead of putting up decorations AND finding places to store things, why not use storage solutions that decorate?
I pinned this idea too…love it! Now I just need some embroidery floss… 🙂
This is the first time I’ve ever bought brand new floss because I have such a big stash from Grandma Leona and other crafty family members! When I get a chance, I’m going to clothespin wrap all of those skeins, too, and store them in the big bowl my mom made (the one with the cookie cutters above) . . . probably on the coffee table. 🙂
This is great!
Thank you! All those bright colors against the plain wooden clothespins never fail to make me smile! 🙂

Brilliant idea! I use two different colors of embroidery floss on every quilt I make and I have rebought the same thread more than once because I didn’t see I alrady owned it. I love this idea! Thanks for sharing!
You’re so welcome! Besides being handy, I think they look so pretty on those spools! 🙂

This is a great idea. Clothes pins are very inexpensive. I can also see these hung from a ‘clothesline’ and used as a functional wall decoration. Thanks for sharing this! -Vickie
You’re very welcome! And I like your idea, too! 🙂
