Baker's Twine Spool Holder

Today I'm creating a better way to store the 
Baker's Twine I use in my workshop.

My basement and workshop are once again getting cleaned, purged and organized. I need to do this every once in a while because when I create I make a huge mess. 

I'm adding my Amazon affiliate links so you can create this project using products like these at no additional cost to you.

Today I'm tackling this pile of Baker's Twine.

DIY Baker's Twine Spool Holder

I had a lot of wood leftover from an old dresser I disassembled in my basement. I saved some of the wood and it's come in very handy. 

While I was looking for a dowel to cut for the pegs I remembered I had a jar of pegs on my supply shelf I found at a garage sale... perfect!

I drilled holes the size of the pegs down the center of one of the reclaimed boards.

I used a little wood glue then hammered the pegs into the holes.

I painted the board and the pegs with white paint then added a length of measuring tape for decoration. I realized later it is great for measuring the twine too!

Baker's Twine Organizer

Using an old repurposed drawer with a frame I made a few years ago, I made a string station for all my twine and string.

This was an easy project that will keep my Baker's twine organized!

  1. I like this ALOT!!! I may use the idea and adapt it to my personal needs. I think the use of the measuring tape is perfect! very convenient. And being able to store it out of the way but bring it down when needed is perfect.

  2. Thanks so much Beth! I need to make a few more of these because I have more spools of twine! :)

  3. What a great idea! May I ask what the space is in between the pegs? Thanks!

    1. Hi Mary,
      The space between the pegs is only about 2 1/2- 3". You could really make them more but I wouldn't do less than 2 1/2" :) Thanks for visiting!
