Merry Macrame: A Christmas Tree Design

Here is one for lovers of all things macrame… and all things Christmas! This beautiful new design from Devon Coverdale combines both, so you can snuggle up with a glass of mulled wine and get crafting on this merry little tree in time for the festive season of December. Once finished, this one keeps for Christmases yet to come and looks fantastic as a wall hanging – or as a really special Christmas wrapping or hamper embellishment…

Macrame Christmas Tree

We Used:

Step 1:

Cut the macrame cord to the following lengths:

2 x 120cm
4 x 100cm
2 x 80cm
2 x 50cm

Take the two 120cm lengths and secure them onto the wooden ring with larks head knot.

Step 2:

Knot the working ends using a square knot. On the left hand side, use a half hitch knot and then use a larks head knot to add two of the 100cm lengths to the working length. Repeat on the right hand side.

Step 3:

Repeat step 2, this time only adding one 100cm length on each side.

Step 4:

Take the middle working lengths and pull them through the centre of the wooden bead. Secure the bead in place using two rows of half hitch knots, before the final half hitch knot add one of the 80cm cords with a half hitch knot to the working end.

Step 5:

Repeat step 4, this time using 50cm cords on each side.

Step 6:

Add the final wooden bead and secure underneath with two square knots. Then work from the outside of the tree to the inside using half hitch knots to create the triangle.

Step 7:

Unravel the loose ends and trim to 1 inch length.
