DIY Bakers Twine

Faux Bakers Twine from The Frugal Crafter




I love plain cotton thread (#10 crochet cotton) and have it in a bunch of different colors.  I have even twisted a couple colors together to make it look more bakers twine-ish.  But now that I have seen this tutorial from The Frugal Crafter, I have an even better way to to make faux Bakers Twine.

When I first saw the finished product, I thought it looked like way to much work! Did they just eyeball the spacing?  Then I watched this video:



You wrap it around a ruler and draw some vertical lines with a permanent marker and Voila!   Your own homemade Baker's Twine.

OMG! I love you! I've been trying to justify spending $$$ on bakers twine and I have a huge roll of this lying around from a failed doily experiment. Thanks!
