How to Make Macrame Rainbow

Step 1:

Get the braided cord. Measure 9″ and cut. Make 4.

Step 2:

Get one of the cords and your preferred yarn color. Lay the end of the yarn along with the cord then wrap it around until the other end. Make sure not to cover the end parts of the cord. Thread the end of the yarn to the sewing needle, then insert into the previous loops. Cut the excess.

Repeat with the remaining cords but in different colors. Make sure to check the length of the cord that you need to cover by forming them into a rainbow just like in the photo below.

Step 4:

Glue the cords together forming a rainbow. Trim the cords so they have the same lengths.

Step 5:

Comb the ends of the cord to separate the threads. Trim the ends.
