Using a hammer and a nail, mark the holes where the coils will stand. Make a decorative frame for beauty, gluing along the perimeter of the board molding. Paint the entire organizer for threads with paint from the can. The final and most important stage is to drive nails into the planned places. Ready the organizer securely fasten to the wall and arrange the spools with threads on the pins. The nails can be driven slightly at an angle, so that the thread color is better seen, and also to reduce the risk of the coil coming off the pin to zero. Instead of nails, you can use screws, wooden pegs, markers and pencils. You can also play with the shape of the base, cutting out any figure from the DSP.
