I love baker’s twine! I find so many uses for it, and of course that versatility has justified my purchase of almost every color made! The result of my collecting is a jumbled mess of spools and cards of twine haphazardly shoved into a box. There were several “cutesy” twine organizers on Pinterest, but none of them spoke to my practical side. I came up with a way to organize my twine in an inexpensive way that I can expand as my collection grows, and keep it tangle-free! Follow along as I show you how to make your own DIY organizer.
- Darice Clear Paint Can (one per 8-12 spools of twine)
- LockTight Small Plastic Storage Containers (one set per 6 cards of twine)
- Ultimate Wood Burning and Crafting Tool
- Various Baker’s Twines (both spooled and carded)
When the spools are situated, decide where you will want your holes to be. You will need one hole per spool of twine.
Using a wood burning tool, with a tip the approximate size of a standard hole punch, melt through the plastic of the paint can about 1″ from the top rim of the can.
They come apart for individual use (when I craft on the go) or snap together for storage.
I love that the containers are clear. The bright colors make me happy to look at. And I love that I have easy access to all of my twine! I hope you are inspired to tackle your tangled twine with this DIY organizer!
