I have been drooling over all of the baker’s twine projects I’ve been seeing lately. Haven’t you?
It comes in SOOO many delicious colors, and can be used in a multitude of ways.
I’ve entered several giveaways in hope that I’ll be able to add some to my craft collection, but I’ve yet to win. It’s okay thought. I decided to make my own, because I’m cheap thrifty.
And if you are walking down the same thrifty path as me, you can make your own too!
white string | ruler | Sharpies | spools
I picked up the white string at the Wal-Mart for $2.97 I believe.
The cute spools came from The Plaid Barn (more on this site soon!).
First, Wrap your string tightly around the ruler
(I covered my ruler in masking tape to avoid the marker adding a little necessary decorations).
I’ve found the quickest way to do this is to hold the ruler in one hand and wrap quickly with the other…then push the string up the ruler to make snug!
Then, you’ll need to choose one of your Sharpies (or other permanent marker).
And color several straight lines.
Now, find a way to store your DIY Baker’s Twine. I ordered these wooden spools from The Plaid Barn. However, my sister thinks she has seen them at Hobby Lobby.
Wrap. Wrap. Wrap.
And repeat in several different colors.
I created the baker’s twine I used in both projects below following these easy steps!
The possibilities are ENDLESS!
