Empty spools

As i empty my thread spools, i throw them in a large bowl. yesterday the bowl was full.

That is 77 spools. these were emptied from April through yesterday of this year. i already had a couple hundred more that i emptied in the first 4 months of the year. 

I did an enormous amount of piecing this year. that is why i have almost 90 tops to quilt in 2015. hahaha

I want to do something with these spools.....some artsy, fartsy craft project....probably for the Duck....but haven't figured out what.....yet.

An idea that is floating around in my brain.....is painting them and gluing them to the ceiling in the entryway....where i glued the barn wood to the walls.  maybe....maybe

Got any ideas for me?

I'm impressed! I also don't have any ideas for you. I used to save mine but never came up with a good plan for them so tossed them out. I've never had that many at one time either!
