Hey all! We’ve got another free macramé pattern here for you today, this one the 2nd of 3 DIY Macramé Ornaments! This one was so fun to make and, believe it or not, it’s even simpler than the first in this series.
In the last post I talked about how wonderfully these work as holiday home decorations (check out the DIY Macramé Ornaments #1 post, and the Rustic Crochet Garland for more holiday home décor) but don’t forget that these make great handmade gifts as well. Once you set started, you’ll see just how easy all three patterns are to make, and making a gift set with each variation should only take 1-2 hours!

- 5mm cotton cord (1 roll will be far more than enough) – natural color available from Bochiknot on Amazon
- 2″ diameter wood rings
- Using the 5mm cotton cord, cut a piece 72″ in length. Fold the cord in half and attach it to a wood ring using a lark’s head knot.
- Turn the piece over, then draw the right cord around the back of the ring and through the front of this newly created loop. Tighten this new knot against the initial lark’s head knot.
- Continue making these loops on both side of the initial lark’s head knot. Essentially, we’re creating a series of clove hitches in two different directions around the ring, meeting on the opposite side from the initial lark’s head knot.
- Fill in the rest of the ring by creating two more loops around the ring with both the left and right cords. Knot the 2 cords at the top to create a loop from which to hang the ornament.
- Create a bow with a piece of ribbon or twine and knot this around the base of the newly created loop.
There’s one more macramé ornament pattern coming after this! I hope you all have a blast making these, and I can’t wait to share the last one with you.
