Leah Connolly will show you how to create these cute and fun Macramé bracelets using the lovely Frozen™ beads.  Learn how to make these Daisy Macramé Bracelets using your choice of thin cord and 4mm round beads.

I just loved making these cute Macramé bracelets and I must admit I got a bit carried away and I made a few for myself. There are so many threads/materials you can use to create this design, the satin cord works well, as well as the S-Lon cord. I even had a go at using the mixed Miyuki thread, which created a beautiful ombre effect. Why don't you gather your beads, sit back and relax and enjoy making with this therapeutic Macramé technique. 

Ready? Let's braid. 

Supplies
Thread - thin thread ranging from 0.5 - 1mm thread
Frozen™ beads 4mm or any other 4mm round beads
Scissors
Macramé board
Glue or a thread zapper - I preferred using a thread zapper as it gives you a neater finish


Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

Cut approx. 40cm of the pink cord to be used as the centre cord. Now cut 50cm of blue and pink cord, then tie both ends together and start your square knots. If you have not tied a square knot before please watch our tutorial video.


Step 2

Create eight complete macramé square knots and thread on three beads on the centre cord and two beads on both your outer cords (see image). Continue with two macramé square knot then add three more beads to the centre cord and two beads on your outer cords until you have created 8 flowers with your beads.

Step 3

Once you have 8 flowers create eight complete macramé square knots, then knot or glue the ends to secure your thread.

To create the sliding knot, cut approx. 30cm blue and pink cord, then tie both ends together and start to create your sliding knot over the base cords. Trim any excess cords by either knotting them or using glue. Then add one blue bead onto the end of each of the cords and tie a knot.
