Who doesn't like flowers? But honestly! Is anyone like that? I don't think there is such a person. We have something special for you - a tutorial to make very simple cord bracelets. Beginners and even young girls will cope with it and it has been prepared especially for such people. However, experienced craftsmen can (and should)  also have fun with it. A macramé flower bracelet will become your favourite summer decoration. Lots of fun can also be had when  weaving together with children. Check it out for yourself! 

I should probably grow out of flowers. At least, I think so, and some tell me. But, but I really don't feel like it. Although I have a son almost as tall as I am, I still like flowers in my hair, dresses, trousers and bags - all in all, wherever I can! I hope that I will stay this way as long as possible. 

Products needed:

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 a piece of cord 10 cm longer than the circumference of your wrist. Fold more or less like me in the picture and attach to the mat. The shorter part is about 5 cm. It is best to work when the string is pulled from both sides. You can knock the pins into a cork board or board and stretch the lead string more tightly. 

Step 1

Step 2

Cut the cord 4 or 4.5 times longer than the first piece. Fold it in half to find the middle and pass it under short as in the picture. The middle of the long is ideally under the short.

Step 1

Step 3

Now put one end into short cords. Just like in the picture.

Step 1

Step 4

Now pass the cord to the other side and put it under the short and left string so that it comes out of the loop. Just like in the picture. Grab both long ends and tighten.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 5

Repeat the same thing on the other hand. We give a cord on top. 

Step 1

Step 6

Pass the left cord above the right cord. 

Step 1

Step 7

Now we pass the tip of the left under the cords to the loop, grab both ends and tighten.

Step 8

And we go to the other side again.

Step 2

Step 9

This is how we do the basic weave - about 3 cm. We cut a shorter cord. Now we will make a flower.

Step 3

Step 10

Before we continue to knot, we will add our 8 mm ball. It must fit the loop like a button.

Step 1

Step 11

Ok, we already have about 3 cm of our basic macrame. We put a 4 mm ball on the short cord. We thread 3 Toho on both ends. To make it easier for us, I recommend burning the tips lightly. And we will weave as before. Remember not to confuse pages. We always make a loop, i.e. the cord goes up from the side where it comes out from under the braid. You will notice it in this picture.

Step 5

Step 12

After the flower we make a few knots. I do 10. But it's up to you how many flowers you want. We are making another flower. We thread a cord of 4 mm on the cord and on the side 3 Toho and we weave as before.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 13

When we have the length of our bracelet, we cut the side cords and gently burn them to melt and stick together. We put a ball - button on the cord and make two knots next to the bead so that it doesn't slip. Cut the excess cord and gently burn the knot.

Step 14

And we have a beautiful boho bracelet.

Step 1

Step 15

Here I present to you my set. Double bracelet and earrings. The pattern is made on the base just as easily, and even simpler because the string is a rigid base. 

Step 1

Step 16

A macramé flower bracelet is a nice summer addition. Now that you can do it, you can go crazy with colours and beads. You can make a choker, earrings, double bracelet like Monika. Have fun experimenting with it!
