Baker’s twine is so cute. Yet is is very easy to make. And it has so many crafty uses!
The original tutorial is on this blog. However, the instructions are simple. Let’s get started.
- Permanent markers (Sharpie, Bic, etc)
- White string –alternatives: yarn, embroidery floss, ribbon

||1. Wrap a long piece white string around a ruler closely packed together (see photo). Cover the ruler with masking tape beforehand if you want to protect it. It also helps to tape the loose ends of the string to the ruler.
2. Using a permanent marker, color several straight horizontal lines onto the string. Flip the ruler over and color the other side too.
Note: If you don’t have white twine, you can use white or light colored yarn just sure the marker doesn’t bleed. You can also use ribbon or embroidery floss (do not color it).
||3. Store string for later use. An empty thread spool works nicely!
||ALTERNATIVE: Wrap the string around a pencil instead of a ruler. Secure with tape. Make stripes with the marker.
