Free Macramé Pattern: DIY Macramé Ornaments #1

With the holidays coming fast, I wanted to share a few of my favorite macramé ornaments with you all! We just got our tree yesterday, and it’s still settling now, but I can’t wait to get it all decorated.

This year, I intend to use a ton more handmade items in our home decorating (especially since we’ll be home so much more this year) and I love the simple, boho look of macramé pieces. These three macramé ornaments are so fun to make, and incredibly easy to put together. Make a whole bunch to string from a garland, hang a few on your tree, or even gift some to friends and family!

Read on for the pattern for the first of these three macramé ornaments, and be sure to check out patterns #2 and #3 as well. And, if you’re looking for even more handmade decorations, our Rustic Crochet Garland is lovely and so simple to make!

Pattern 1:

  1. With the 3mm string, cut 4 cords at 15″ each.
Step 1: Cut 4 cords, 15″ each.
  1. Attach each of the 4 cords to the ring using a lark’s head knot.
Step 2: Attach cords using a Lark’s Head Knot.
  1. Turn the ring over so that the bumps of the lark’s head knot are facing up, then tie 2 rows of diagonal clove hitches, using the furthest cords to the right and left as your filler cords.
Step 3: To tie a diagonal clove hitch, hold your filler cord diagonally over the next working cord, then bring the working cord forward, up, and around the filler cord to the left. Finish the clove hitch by taking the working cord around the filler again and passing the end through the loop formed under the filler cord.
  1. Tie two more lengths of diagonal clove hitches beneath the previous two.
Step 4: Tie 2 more rows of diagonal clove hitches.
  1. Repeat steps 1-4 four more times, until there are 5 groups of 4 cords each.
Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4 four times until you have a 5-pointed star.
  1. To finish, trim the excess cords until they’re about half an inch long, then comb them out to create a softer fringe. Attach a piece of twine with another lark’s head knot, then knot it to create a loop to hang the ornament from.

I hope you all have fun making these for your home, and I can’t wait to share the next 2 patterns in this series with you! Feel free to share your creations on any of our social media pages–we’d love to see what you make!
