DIY Wooden Spool Twine Organizer

These 2 found wooden circles are perfect for this project!

I found these at the thrift store... they were the base of another project so I snatched them up for my stash of interesting items I hope to use someday.

Today is that day...

I have this mess of thick macrame twine that I've got to get under control...

And since I've been working on sprucing up my workshop, I thought I'd organize this twine mess with a large handmade spool.

I glued and screwed a cylindrical piece of wood cut from a broom handle between the two wooden discs.

When the glue dried I painted the newly built wooden spool for my twine.

I cut a design on my Silhouette and stenciled it to the top of the spool then distressed it.

When the stencil dried I gave the spool a coat of Miss Mustard Seed Tough Coat to seal the paint and the image. 

Now I've got a much cooler way to store my thick macrame twine in my workshop.
