Holiday Bakers Twine Garland {DIY Christmas Craft}


Welcome to the Crazy Christmas event! If you’re new here you may want to subscribe or join us on facebook. Welcome Lolly Jane!!

Happy holidays you guys! We are so happy to be back for Jamielyn’s Crazy Christmas Event and to share with you our simple bakers twine garland to spruce up your holiday space:

Each year Kelli uses her $4 yard sale find chicken wire frame to display her Christmas cards, set among the red & green holiday decor. This year we decided to spruce it up with a few things we had in our craft stash: festive bakers twine, styrofoam balls (2 sizes) and a bit of red & white washi tape.


1. To create this project, simply fold the washi tape over bakers twine and cut to form a cute mini bunting. 2. Wrap bakers twine around styrofoam balls until the styrofoam is completely hidden. 3. Tie a long piece of twine around a skewer and push through each freshly wrapped bakers twine ball, alternating in color and size, to create a garland. From there just hang the washi tape garland below and enjoy!

All ready to display Christmas cards! [Tree tutorial found here.]

You can check out more of our holiday projects here or take a peek below at a few of our most popular posts to see what these crazy twin sister Kelli & Kristi are all about! Our little corner of blogland, Lolly Jane, is filled with home improvement projects, craft tutorials, holiday decor, recipes and lots of good furniture before and afters. We love how small touches of decor, a newly refurbished piece of furniture or a fresh coat of paint on the wall can customize a space and instantly make it yours.

    Loving this. It’s completely darling!!
    Also makes me want to bust the glass out of my old, chippy window and make room for some “poultry netting”.

      Oooh you should totally bust out the glass and share what you create with the old window, Shannon! Can’t wait to see (;

    I seriously need to get myself some baker’s twine! I’ve been admiring it for such a long time and I still don’t have any! This looks gorgeous and would be really cute as tree ornaments as well…
