How to make Macrame bracelets Step by Step

Step 1: Bead Preparation

Cut four pieces of cord, each about 45cm long. These will be the main threads of your bracelet.

Next, cut a fifth piece of cord, a little longer, about 60 cm. This will be your working thread.

Step 2: Initial assembly

Fold the four main strands in half and place them on the macrame board or pin them firmly in place.

Take the working thread and fold it in half. Place it under the four main threads, leaving a loop at the top.

Step 3: Basic Knots

Begin tying overhand knots over the four main strands using the working thread. To tie a basic knot, pass the right end of the working thread over the main threads and then under them.

Then, pass the left end of the working thread under the main threads and through the loop created by the right end. She tugs gently to tighten the knot.

Repeat this process to tie several basic knots, forming a row of knots along the four main strands.

Step 4: Design Creation

Once you have completed a row of basic knots, you can begin creating the desired design. Experiment with different knot combinations to create interesting patterns.

Some popular knots to experiment with include the square knot, the spiral knot, and the herringbone knot.

Step 5: Fit and finish

Continue weaving and adjusting your design until it reaches the desired length for your bracelet.

When you’re done, secure the ends of the threads by cutting off any excess and tying an overhand knot to keep everything in place.

To close the bracelet, you can tie the ends in a slipknot or add a jewelry clasp, such as a clasp or lobster clasp.

And there you have it! With these simple steps, you can create your own personalized macrame bracelets. Let your creativity fly and design beautiful pieces to show off or give to your loved ones!
