101 Uses for Waxed Thread

This is the beginning stage of "101 ways to use waxed thread" presented by Maine Thread Company

101 Uses of waxed threadWe are now simply assembling the list, and details will follow later. Please note that this amazing product is versatile, the thread plies can actually be stripped apart if very thin wax string is required, as in model ship riggings and small dream catchers or even in custom jewelry.

This list consists of uses of waxed thread that are very practical in everyday life, others are for arts and crafts, and some are just silly and fun!
