Today I have a super easy tutorial for an adorable DIY project that can be done in minutes. Check it out ;)
Super cute macrame knot key chain made with love for only a few bucks ;)
Here is what you need to purchase:
I first snagged this 3/16 " soft polyester blend rope at Harbor Freight for $1.99. The roll is 100 feet - plenty of other projects to come ;)
I then picked up a half inch swivel snap at Home Depot for under $2.
Then you will need these to get started:
two lengths of rope 48" each
two lengths of rope 32" each
the swivel snap
ruler to measure your rope
First lope the two 48 " ropes through the bottom of the snap in a loop knot. You then make a single square knot like so. You'll be following the exact same tutorial for a square knot as shown here. See pictures below ;)
Make sure to pull firm and you have one square knot.
Then create another square knot from the other side.
Now you have two square knots.
Now we will develop a diamond pattern. Take a 32" section of rope and place under the two ropes on the left hand side.
Then pull them to the middle.
With this new set of four, continue with a square knot.
I completed two square knots and then copied the pattern on the right hand side.
I then joined the four middle ropes into two sets of square knots - completing the diamond.
This is where I stopped - ensure your final knot is tight.
I then cut the ropes down to the length I wanted and pulled apart the plies into some pretty fringe.
Once done, clip to your bag or purse. Add to your key-chains or hang from the rear view mirror ;)
I will be linking up to these awesome parties!
