Make a huge macramé feather

Make a huge macramé feather

How to instructions

  • 1

    Cut a 110 cm piece of yarn, fold it in half, and string on 3 wooden beads, leaving about 10 cm above the beads. Tie a knot beneath and above the beads to prevent them from slipping off.

  • 2

    Cut sixty 40-cm-long pieces of yarn, which you will tie around the centre threads. You need two pieces of yarn for each knot.

  • 3

    Fold a piece of yarn in half and place it under the centre threads, with the loop facing the right and the ends facing the left. Fold another piece of yarn, and poke the ends through the loop of the first piece of yarn. Pull the ends of the first piece of yarn through the loop of the second piece of yarn and tighten. Move the knot as high as you can, towards the wooden beads. Next, thread a pipe cleaner into the knot youve just tied.

  • 4

    Tie 29 knots as in step 3, alternating every other knot to the left and right of the centre threads.

  • 5

    Finish by double-knotting the centre threads together.

  • 6

    Use a dense comb to comb out all of the yarn.

  • 7

    Shape the feather with the pipe cleaner and angle the yarn downwards.

  • 8

    Brush the yarn with varnishing glue to give the feather a little structure.

  • 9

    Trim all of the yarn to shape the feather.
