Here’s a list of the supplies you’ll need to make this fun rainbow macramé – all available at our Ben Franklin Crafts and Frame Shop stores in Bonney Lake & Monroe, WA:

– Macrame Cord Cream 6mm

– 4 colored yarns in desired colors (We used Sugar ‘n’ Cream yarn in colors rose pink, tea rose yellow & robins egg)

– Hot Glue Gun



1. Cut macrame cord into desired lengths (in sample about 12-15 inches). Cut 12 strips total.

2. Take 3 strips and tie on with overhand knot wrapping it tightly with desired yarn. Be sure to leave some space at the end of the cord (this will act as clouds later).

3. Once to desired length, cut yarn and do an overhand knot and tuck the end into the macrame to hide it.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with other colors, but make the length shorter as you go.

5. Hot glue each finished cord to each other into an arch shape.

6. Trim ends and unravel macrame and finger comb out.
