I bought a big bag of old wooden spools the other day, with this purpose in mind....
My vintage lace & crochet trims, wound around the spools.... Secured with a pearl~topped pin.

Super idea! I just unearthed my handful of wooden spools last week as I dug through my closet.

I love those old wooden spools, I have a few. The lace looks pretty wrapped around them, add a ribbon, and make a "tassle!"

I know this is an old post but just had to tell you in case you see this, what a beautiful idea that is. I would never have thought of it.
