DIY Mini Macramé Garland

This DIY macramé garland is the perfect way to decorate a space. It’s perfect to decorate for a birthday party, holiday, or other special occasional. It also works great to simply spruce up a space in your home. We think it would look extra cute on a fireplace mantle, a staircase, or even on some bookshelves. This bunting is made with our recycled cotton metallic crafting cord; a sustainable product for a sustainable craft!

 

 

Materials Needed:

 

Instructions:

  • Measure and cut 18 yellow and gold cords 22 inches. long.
  • Measure and cut 18 white and gold cords 22 inches long.
  • Measure and cut 1 rope of choice 50 inches long.
  • Secure the long piece of rope to a surface. Tape off approximately 10 in. of rope on each end.
    • This is so the garland can be tied/hung.
  • Fold 6 yellow and gold cords in half and attach them to the left side of the long rope with 6 lark’s head knots.

 

 

  • Tie one row of 3 square knots, moving left to right. Each square knot will use 4 cords.
  • Tie one row of 2 square knots directly below the previous row, using the 8 cord in the center.
  • Tie one more row with 1 square knot directly below the previous row, using the 4 cords in the center.

 

 

  • Using the cord on the far left (leading cord), begin tying 5 double half hitch knots around this cord moving down and diagonally to the right. This will follow the line of square knots.
  • Using the cord on the far right (leading cord), begin tying 5 double half hitch knots around said cord moving down and diagonally to the left. This will follow the line of square knots
  • Connect the two leading cords in the center using a double half hitch knot.

 

 

  • Trim and unravel ends as needed/desired. The first section of the garland is complete.
  • Attach a bead to the long rope, next to the first section of garland. You will have a bead between all sections once finished.

 

 

  • Repeat previous steps using the white and gold cord. Continue these steps until all 6 sections of garland is complete, alternating between colors for each section.
  • Slide the garland sections around on the rope as needed to fill in gaps and/or to center them on the long rope.
  • Tie a simple knot with the long rope at the first garland section and the last.
    • This will prevent the garland from sliding around on the rope once all sections are placed where you want them.

 

The garland is now complete! Simply tie your garland on a bookshelf, fireplace, staircase, or hang it on the wall to decorate your home.
