Att mustascher är i ropet i inrednings- och pysselvärlden är inget nytt under solen. Jag kan inte heller säga att jag är först med att måla mustascher på ägg. Men det spelar ingen roll – det är värt att upprepas.
I’m not sure who started it, but I know for me it was because Katy , Megan and Brenda lit a fire under my butt with their #scappytripalong on Instagram (I’m pretty sure they’re behind all the madness/scrappy crack). I was just minding my business, getting my daily fix o’ pix on my Instagram feed - and the next thing I know I’m up to my eyeballs in 2½” squares.

I looked into buying a holder, but you know how "thrify" I am - I didn't want to waste valueable crafting funds on a boring thread holder. And then I saw some pegboard at a garage sale and found my solution - make one! So here we go - a quick tutorial on how to make a thread spool holder - in case you need one, too. First, gather your supplies:
