Why we love striped baker’s twine…

So much more than simply string, the humble striped baker’s twine adds instant style to your festive projects and Christmas gift wrapping.

We confess to having a bit of a love affair with the stuff, and just to show how versatile it is, we’ve collected some gorgeous images from Pinterest to show how you can use baker’s twine in your own projects.

Red and white twine looks great with winter foliage to give an instant festive feel – rosemary, fir and mistletoe all work well. For a smart contemporary look, choose black and white twine and use it with glossy white or monochrome gift wrap. Or for a natural feel, team brown or green twine with brown kraft paper bags or boxes and finish with a stylish gift tag or sticker, such as Katie Leamon’s Chevron Stripe Gift Tags (£4.50 for 6 tags) or Hello Deer Stickers (£4.50 for 12 stickers).

Our Vintage Wooden Spools of Bakers Twine (below, top left) are available in red, black, brown or green and  cost £4.50 for a 10 metre spool. With such pretty packaging, they’re good enough to give as gifts and make a great stocking filler for creative or crafty friends. Happy twining!
