Simply attach spool to wall using a long screw and make sure you drill into a wall stud.

My sewing/project room is very small.  I'm always looking for creative ways to stay organized.  At first I thought of attaching hooks to the walls, but the idea struck me to use some of the old wooden spools I'd been collecting.  Since the spools already had a hole in the middle, all it took was a long screw drilled into a wall stud.  You can even use spools as drawer knobs.
