LOVE Macrame: How To Make Curtain Ties

Searching for a new look around the house? The wonderful Devon Coverdale is back again to show us how to add a little bit of extra light into any room in the house with these wonderful macrame curtain ties. Have a look at these easy steps and create them for yourself!

You Will Need:

  • Scissors
  • Brush
  • 10m macrame cord
  • Needle and thread
  • Decorative bead

Step 1:

Cut the following lengths of cord
1 x 2m
4 x 1m
14 x 30cm

Step 2:

Fold the 2m length in half and measure around your curtain, work out where you want the
pendant to sit. Tie a knot roughly where you want the pendant to start.
Using double half hitch knots create a v shape beneath this knot.

Step 3:

Continue using double half hitch knots but attach the cords to the opposite side anchor
cord to create a solid diamond shape.

Step 4:

Using double half hitch knots again create another v – make sure you leave some slack in
the outer cord to allow space to add more cords onto it at the end.

Step 5:

Use double half hitch again, but this time take the cords from the inside first and knot
them outwards to create a gap in the diamond.

Step 6:

Repeat steps 3 and 4 to create another diamond.

Step 7:

Using larks head knots attach the 30cm cords to the outer cords you created in step 5
and 7.

Step 8:

Brush out the cord and trim to shape.

Step 9:

Optional step – add a decorative bead to add a pop of colour, simply thread the bead into
the second diamond shape.
