With the holidays quickly approaching, you may already be looking for handmade gift ideas that are trendy, festive, and (as a bonus) quick to make. This macramé wreath ornament is just that. The knots used are simple & beginner friendly (as well as linked for convenience) and one roll of rope can easily make several ornaments.
This simple little macramé wreath ornament is one of the most popular patterns from my previous blog, and I couldn’t wait to share it again (with edits & clarification). As always, the pattern is available for free below with an included picture tutorial and links to tutorials for the knots. Supplies are also linked for convenience.
Be sure to check out Etsy for a downloadable, printable PDF (includes photo tutorial + knot tutorials) for the price of a cup of coffee!
