There are so many great beginner macramé projects to explore in our library. And in addition to that, Meagan has created a mini course video series that walks you through all of the basic knots so you can learn this skill quickly! We are adding a bonus video in that series to show you how to create the 4 strand braid that we used for this macrame braided cord Easter egg wreath.
When you’re ready to get started, check out our supplies list in this post with all of the linked tools and materials. Then watch our quick video tutorial below to learn how to braid your macrame cord.
An Eggstra Special Easter Wreath
What makes this wreath extra special are all of the handmade touches — from the macrame we braided to the felt leaves we cut out to the spun cotton eggs we painted. Once you’ve learned how to create this macrame braided cord wreath, you can use it as a base for different wreaths year round. Or you can use the technique for other future craft projects like a wall hanging.

How to Make a Macrame Braided Cord Easter Egg Wreath
Once you learn how to braid with four of these soft cotton macramé cord strands, you can simply glue it to a wreath form and add your decorations. For our macrame braided cord Easter egg wreath, we created some felt ivy leaves and added detail with a white Posca marker. You can find the template for these leaves below, or see how they were used in Krista’s felt ivy plant project. These felt leaves are easy to cut by hand or on a cutting machine with a rotary blade so you will find both the PDF template and SVG cut file below.
I painted the paper spun eggs with pastel markers just to give them a slight tint. You can use craft paint or any color of marker to match your Easter decor. For my pastel eggs, the final touch was adding tiny dots with a white Posca marker. You can then arrange and glue them how you like onto your macrame braided cord Easter egg wreath.
