With winter break coming up, we know you might be looking for some fun and easy crafts for kids to do. So how about a kid’s macrame project? This little wall hanging is super adorable and and only uses two knots — a larks head knot and square knot — plus an alternating pattern.

Need some help learning these knots? If you’re a member, your kiddo can watch our online mini course, which teaches 15 macrame knots for beginners. In fact, you could even take it with them and do this project together!

There’s snowplace like home for the holidays

Since we’re all spending more time at home lately, we might as well make it more cozy! For our kid’s macrame wall hanging, we used a wintry mix of colors (linked below) that are perfect for this time of year. You can do the same or pick whatever colors you like best for your macrame cord and roving wool.

This craft project is a great one for ages 10 and up. Depending on their skill level, some kids may need some adult assistance. Just follow our step-by-step photo tutorial and make sure to check out our mini course if you need a refresher on macrame knots!
