Macrame has become wildly popular in the last couple of years for its unique natural and artisanal aesthetic. Making macrame yourself provides so much freedom to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Recently we shared a tutorial for some beautiful macrame wall art designs that you can incorporate into your home or office decor. Here we bring you a tutorial for a simple DIY macrame necklace, perfect for pairing with all of your summer outfits!
Making Your Necklace
Our DIY macrame necklace uses a series of the most basic macrame knots — the square knot. To make this necklace, you will need a chain and jewelry findings. We found our copper chain at our local jewelry store and then used a lobster clasp with two jump rings. We used a copper keyring for our center, but feel free to choose another type of metal that better fits your style! While you are at your jewelry store, you can also pick out little beads to add into your macrame weaving. Just make sure that the beads are the same thickness as your string or the beads will slip off! The whiter material is cotton twine, and the off-white material is hemp cord. Once you have your materials ready, follow the step-by-step photo tutorial below to braid your DIY macrame necklace.
