    Our macrame snowflake, sometimes called a macrame star, is fun to make and hang on your holiday tree. A great rainy day or snow day project!



    Supplies needed:
    12 sections of 28" long cord
    1 ring about 1" in diameter
    clear glue
    Attach all 12 sections of cord to the ring with a larks head. Make sure to pull each section very tight to the ring.



    Separate cords into 6 sections of 4 cords. For instructions on how to tie a square knot, see our paracord bracelet tutorial.

    Make 2 square knots for each section. You will have 6 points around the ring when you finish.


    Separate your cords again into 6 sections, moving over 1 cord so 2 outside cords become the inner cords, and the inner cords become the outside cords, creating alternating square knots.

    Start each square knot about 1/2” down to give the snowflake a lacy look.


    Make a picot under each square knot you just made. To make a picot, tie a square knot about 1 inch below the previous square knot, then push up so it is right under the first square knot, making a loop on each side which is the picot. ( see arrow )


    Tie one more square knot under each picot, tying very tightly as this is the last knot.


    Cut all the ends, leaving about 1/2”, and put some clear glue on the last square knot of each section. Your snowflake is done!


     Name your snowflake and enjoy your creation!
