Make macramé feathers

Make macramé feathers

How to instructions

  • 1

    Cut a 40 cm piece of yarn. Tie it to a wooden ringlet using a larks head knot: Fold the piece of yarn in half. Pass the loop through the ringlet, then pull the yarn ends through the loop and tighten, resulting in two centre threads.

  • 2

    Cut several 15-cm-long pieces of yarn, for tying knots around the centre threads.

  • 3

    Fold one of those pieces of yarn in half. Slide the folded yarn underneath the centre threads, with the loop to one side of the centre threads, and the ends to the other. 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. Tighten to form a knot, and slide it up towards the ringlet.

  • 4

    Continue tying knots, alternating every other knot to the left and every other knot to the right of the centre threads. The side where you place the loop of the first piece of yarn determines the direction of the knot. Keep tying until the piece is 9-10 cm long. Double knot the centre threads together. Trim the ends and secure with glue.

    Trim the yarn into the shape of a feather.

Make stylish macramé feathers for Easter! Getting started with macramé can be a little tricky at first, but once you've figured out the technique, it's so much fun that you won't want to quit. We made our feathers using ordinary cotton yarn and wooden beads. Once you've shaped the feathers, tie another lark's head knot around the wooden ringlet and use a beading needle to string on wooden beads. Knot the ends so that you can hang your yarn feathers up. Watch the video to see how to make the feathers. Decorate your Easter bouquet with your own beautiful, hand-made yarn feathers!
