If you are fed up with seeing your threads tangling together in a box and you want a quick, economical, portable, easy2make, light spool holder; you can make it today and have it for as long as like.

Technique Materials

Materials needed: polystyrene from packaging, wooden toothpicks. If you prefer a completely recycled environmental version - no, i won’t suggest to include used toothpicks, but plastic ones - they are usually made out of recycled plastic.

      yes, i know, I could have used something like this a long time ago, I just didn’t expect probably that such a simple idea could prove to be so useful giggling

    If you are determined to make your spool holder take a look at kaitui_kiwi’s technique also: .. my technique has one clear advantage though: you can skip “Helpful fiancé or similar” for materials … anyways good job to both of them, her spool holder has a finished professional look!
