DIY: How to Make Mini Macramé Accessories & Jewelry

Make a bunch of macramé minis and hone your hand-knotting technique.

If you missed out on the macramé craze of the 70s, never fear. Macramé is back and it’s better than ever. The good news is, it’s really fun to make macramé, and you need only a couple basic supplies – namely the cording, and in the case of these minis, the hardware that you’ll use to hang the macramé from. Our Dritz® swivel hooks and carabiner came in super handy for these little guys. Added bonus: the hardware makes it easy for you to hang your macramé minis from a bag or necklace.

Take a moment to watch this YouTube video and see how easy it is to make some of the basic knots. (With macramé, we think it’s much easier to see the knots being made, than trying to explain how to make them!)

What to do with these pretties? Well, bag accessories are a given. Using a swivel hook fastener for the hardware means you have both a loop on which to anchor your macramé, and a hook that opens and closes easily, allowing you to hang your creation as you wish.

For a necklace, the round part of our Dritz® key fob hardware works. You can add in beads as desired to personalize your look.
