I think Rumpelstiltskin would like this display of vintage yarn wall art. He might be tempted to spin them into gold. But my guess is he would like them just as they are. Simple spools of colorful yarn have been proudly displayed on this wood shelf to turn the ordinary into something really extraordinary. Forget the sewing because these 160 spools of yarn are meant to be admired. Hang this display behind the sofa or let it go solo on any large empty wall. It will bring color and visual interest to your space. Yarn repurposed into art.
Vintage Yarn Wall Art
A mill operator tells the king that his daughter can spin straw into gold in hopes that the king will marry her and save them from a life of poverty. So the king locks the girl in a tower with a bushel of straw. Knowing that she cannot turn straw into gold the girl begins to cry. A goblin like creature named Rumpelstiltskin appears and in exchange for her small jewels he spins the straw into gold. The king brings more straw, the girl gives more away and Rumpelstiltskin spins more gold. You see where this is going. Finally, there is a room full of straw, no more jewels to trade and the little goblin asks for her first born. The girl agrees, marries the king and a beautiful baby is born. Now things get ugly. The girl, who is now the queen, outwits the goblin, keeps her baby and Rumpelstiltskin meets an untimely death. I never said that fairy tales were nice. Hardly the case from Brothers Grimm. That’s why I think Rumpelstiltskin would leave these spools of yarn just as they are. A hard lesson to learn.
