I try not to jump on crafting trends. I really do. If something gets big, I try to stay away. Problem is? Baker's twine is just too cool. I really like it. I mean I was a twine girl to begin with and then this baker's twine comes out in all these beautiful colors and I just gotta tell you -- it has been in my amazon cart like 40 TIMES, but I have never bought it. Why? It's hot. Everyone loves it and it is everywhere. You know what happens when a crafting supply is hot? It gets expensive. No longer is baker's twine super cheap because it is utilitarian. Now it is a bonafide craft supply and it is expensive. SO. I never pulled the trigger. I didn't buy it, but I wanted it. I wanted some bad.
I saw lots of tutorials about DIY Baker's Twine. Well that's a step in the right direction, right? Right. So instead of buying string and colored paint...I used what was lying around in the closet. Green embroidery thread and white paint. 5 minutes watching "The Voice" and 20 minutes of drying later and voila - baker's twine. Kinda.

It comes in green, blue and red, found at your local dollar store for a measly BUCK, it can be used for OUTDOOR crafting and if disaster strikes, you can head to your craft closet for supplies.
Now tell the truth, did you guess before I told you???
