In honor of our 10-year anniversary, we are returning to our roots with more flower-inspired projects for this month’s craft collection. We’ve used a variety of materials so far, and we’ve even managed to tie in macrame! Designed by Meagan, this macrame flower key chain features three little “blooms” with wooden beads for the centers.
To get started, check out our supplies list below. Then download our step-by-step tutorial at the end of the post.
What’s knot to like about this?
This macrame flower key chain is easy to make and a fun accessory for your keys, purse, or backpack. Using our tutorial below, you will learn how to tie the macrame cords so they wrap around the wooden beads, creating the look of tiny layered petals on a small bloom. As always, you can use any color of macrame cord you prefer.
When you are finished making this key chain, we would love to see the end result! Be sure to share photos on our crafter’s community page. Or use the hashtag #MadeWithLia when posting pictures of your DIY projects.
