Bottle Brush Trees and Old Wooden Spools

I picked up a bag of old wooden thread spools at a flea market last week. There were 9 of them, 4 of one design and 5 of another. The 4 shorter, fatter spools have graphics from a textile factory in Shelby NC on the tops and bottoms of them.
I had a few ideas of what I thought I would use the spools for.
My first thought was to use them as hooks on a coat/hat rack, but then the cooler weather changed my direction.
I decided to jump ahead a little to CHRISTMAS!!!!

Rustic Wood Framed Faux Winter Chalkboard

Waking up to the coolest temps so far this Fall and the first frost this morning,
makes this faux chalkboard art seem appropriate.
I had been given this rustic wood frame back in the summer and have held onto it until now.
I love that it has the bark left on the outer edges.
Chalkboards are super "IN" right now and I have yet to create one, but it is on my list of projects. You know that list, the one that never seems to end.
