I LOVE all the macrame and wall hangings and weavings that are so popular right now. But I had never tried any of it until I took a stab at it with these DIY mini macrame wind chimes! If you have ever made a friendship bracelet in your life, you can do this macrame tutorial – it’s so easy. Keep reading to see how I did it!
- Chimes (Available in THESE KITS)
- 3 inch Gold Macrame Rings
- 1.5 inch Gold Macrame Ring
- Fishing Line
- Gold Split Rings
- Super Glue
- Masking or Washi Tape
Step 2. Line up the eight long pieces, find the center, and fold in half so you will have 16 pieces of yarn to knot. Tape a couple inches from the top to create a loop. Set the two remaining pieces of yarn aside.
Step 3: Follow the directions here to cover the loop with Larks Head Knots. You will start at the top and work down one side, and then repeat on the other side.
Step 4. Using your two remaining pieces of yarn, make a Gathering Knot to secure the loop. Trim off the excess yarn.
Step 5: Divide the yarn into four sets of four, and start knotting! I created two different patterns (you can see in the finished images), but you can come up with your own configuration of knots. Keep scrolling to see the types of knots I used. I kept it super simple and stuck with the Square knot and the Half Square Knot Spiral.
