DIY Macrame Coasters
1. Round Coaster
If you are struggling to find some of these materials, be sure to try Joann’s as they have a huge selection of arts and crafts materials as well.
- 150cm cord (holding cord)
- 75cm x 11 cords
- 60cm x 6 cords
- 50cm x 9 cords
- 45cm x 4 cords
- 40cm x 5 cords
- First, make a loop near the end of a 150cm cord.
- Then, fold one of the 75cm cords in half and place under the loop of the 150cm cord, then make a cow hitch knot by bringing the ends to the hole we just created. Repeat this step 3 more times.
- Next, pull the end of the 150cm cord to tighten the loop.
- Use a rubber band to mark the first string you’re going to wave to keep a track of each round.
- Then, bring your holding cord to the right of the first string, make a number four with the first string over the holding cord and pull the end through the loop created. Repeat this one more time to create a double half hitch knot.
- Repeat the same steps for the next string and so forth until you finish the first round.
- Continue, repeating these steps until you have achieved 11 rounds.
- When starting new rounds, you may notice some gaps between the last string and the first string. To fix this, you can add more cords to fill in the space.
- The cord lengths don’t have to be precise, so if you are 1 inch short it’s totally fine.
Round 1: No additional cord
Round 2: 75cm cord after 3rd string + 75cm cord after 7th string
Round 3: 75cm before 1st string + 75 cm after 8th string
