Quickie Project

 Everyone loves vintage bobbins and vintage sheet music.  You can find them both at local antique shops or online.
So why not combine the two!  Simply cut music sheets to size and then attach with glue.  
 Wrap string, yarn, twine or burlap garland around the bobbins to keep them organized and looking great! 
 Use decorative straight pins to prevent your strings from unwinding.  
 Clothes pins work great, too.  Try it!  Simple and satisfying!

Cindy, love the music bobbins. I have quite a few of those, but I would have to go with some pink. I wonder how they would look painted pink to hold a candle????. Great job.
I'm having a giveaway, so hope you check it out. Hugs, Pat
