About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.
This is an entry for the Copy Cat Challenge and Maker Mom's contest. Bakers twine is used  for embellishing all kinds of things. It is rather expensive in my opinion so I decided to try something different. Follow through and I will show you how easy it is. Here is the link to Bakers twine. http://www.thebakerstwine.com/#!__shop/value-bakers-twine

Step 1: Supplies

Baling Twine Please read bottom note.
Soap.

Baling twine is what farmers use to bale hay into bundles.  http://www.bridoncordage.com/history_twine.html
I got mine from a friend of mine who owns cows. Some farmers still use baling wire but not very many.
 

Step 2: Tools


Scotch tape
Scissors
Empty spool
Towel

Step 3: Wash

Trim off how much twine you will need.
Wash the twine with the soap.
Rinse well.
Dry.

Step 4: Tape

Tape the end of the twine.

Step 5: Roll

Roll onto the spool.

Step 6: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts

That was easy wasn't it? Now take the twine and embellish something beautiful! This version is heavier than cotton and more difficult to tie into a bow. The tie can be glued or taped to hold the shape. There are many good uses for this type of twine.


In closing I would like to thank our instructables company, sponsors, authors, readers, and members; for making this community a great success! Many hours and hard work has been put into making this place the best DIY on the Internet. Have fun and thanks for stopping by!
