How to make

You Will Also Need

Fresh greenery (I used rosemary and eucalyptus)

Step 1

Remove the ribbon from the metal loop and paint or spray gold.

Step 2

Once it’s dry, cut five 2.5m pieces of string and tie them on the metal loop using the lark’s head knot.

Step 3 

Take string #5 as the guide make a diagonal line of double half hitch knots using string #4, #3, #2, and #1

Step 4 

Repeat on the opposite side using string #6 as the guide.

Step 5 

Use the four strings in the middle and tie a square knot between the two diagonal lines.

Step 6 

Tie two alternating square knots below.

Step 7 

Tie one alternating square knot below. You have made a diamond of square knots.

Step 8 

Make two diagonal lines of double half hitch knots to close the diamond.

Step 9 

Leave a gap of 2 or 3 cm and make a diamond of square knots.

Step 10 

Repeat STEP 3-9

Step 11

Repeat STEP 3-8

Step 12

Cut eight 1.3m pieces of string. Tie four on each side of your macrame using the lark’s head knot.

Step 13 

Cut four 4m pieces of string. Tie two on each side of your macrame using the lark’s head knot.

Step 14 

Take the last four strings on the right and tie half square knots until you reach the desired length.

Step 15 

Repeat on the left side.

Step 16 

Cut the fringe and you can add the longest pieces of strings next to the half square knots or cut four 1.3m strings and add two on each side of your macrame using the lark’s head knot.

Step 17 

Make a small bunch of white berries, eucalyptus, and rosemary and tie on the left side of your metal loop with a piece of thin string. (At about 9 o’clock.)

Step 18 

Make a new bunch and add it below so that the greenery covers the string from the bunch above.

Step 19 

Make a longer bunch that covers the top of the macrame and tie on next to the half square knots on the right side.

Step 20 

Make a new bunch and add it on the right of the macrame piece pointing right.

Step 21 

Add a few more bits of greenery to cover the white strings and tie them at the back of the bunches of greenery.

Step 22 

Keep adding more greenery until you are happy with the final look. 

Step 23

Cut a piece of string or use a cut off to make a lark’s head knot at the top of the loop, tie a simple knot and the wreath is ready to be hung.

Step 24 

Handle the wreath with care once the leaves start to dry.
