Baker’s Twine Cookie Cutter Ornaments

I just love baker’s twine!  I love the colors, and I love the look!  Baker’s twine was traditionally used to wrap baked goods, so I had this idea to wrap it around metal Christmas cookie cutters to make ornaments.  For day two of my 12 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments series, I made these baker’s twine cookie cutter ornaments. Also make sure to take a look at all of my other homemade Christmas ornament tutorials!

 

I love the pattern that the baker’s twine made on the sides of the ornaments!

I came up with the ornament idea, and The Twinery sent me some beautiful baker’s twine to use. (The twine was given to me for free.  All opinions about it are my own.)  I love the colors and the quality of this twine!  The colors that I used are Maraschino, Peapod, and CaribbeanThe Twinery is also participating in the giveaway that I’ve got going on for this series, so make sure to go enter here for your chance to win some of this awesome twine!  Great for crafts and wrapping Christmas gifts!

These are really easy to make, they just take a bit of time.  A perfect TV watching craft!  First, take some baker’s twine off the spool and roll it into a ball.  Make sure the ball is still small enough to fit through the middle of the cookie cutter.  Tie one end of the twine around the top of the ornament.  Begin wrapping the twine around the excess string to hide it.

I found that the best way to do it was to wrap the twine close to the spot that you want it to be and then scoot it into place.  If you run out of twine on your first strand, tie more to the end of it and cover the knot with more wrapping.

 

 

Once you get back to the top, tie a loop to hang the ornament.  I found it helpful here to string the baker’s twine onto an embroidery needle to help maneuver it for tying.

 

And… GIFT IDEA ALERT!  Take one of these ornaments and wrap it up with a jar of cookie mix or a tea towel, like the one I made here.

Great tutorial. So good I actually was able to make one! A friend from Hunting for Ladybirds in Australia shared it on my page Teapots and Tractors. Hope you don't mind but I shared the tutorial with my readers. Love simple craft ideas!
