Macrame Rainbow Tutorial

My sister and I put together some fun little macrame rainbow kits for a local craft fair, and I thought I'd share the instructional video with you guys, too, so you can make your own! 

You may not have a kit, but you only need a few simple supplies to make your own at home - and you can make it any size you want, with as many colors as you want! Get creative and have fun!

Here's all you need to make your own:

  • soft rope that frays easily (I love the "nautical rope" from Dollar Tree)
  • 3 colors of yarn (or more if you want more bands on your rainbow!)
  • a wooden bead (optional)
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • ruler
  • fork
And here's the video instructions:

If you follow the instructions exactly, you'll end up with the cutest little ornament-sized rainbows that will make sweet little Christmas gifts! Yep, I said it. #itsnevertooearlyforchristmas 

Have fun, and let me know if you give it a try! :)

  1. So cute! I love how you "tied up" the yarn end with no knots. It looks much neater and will probably hold better than a square knot at the end. I know the bead it optional, but I like the rainbow with the bead and think it finishes off the project. Thank you for sharing.
