yellow macramé feather earrings

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

First, measure and cut the below lengths of macramé cord:

  • One: 10" [25.4 cm]
  • Twelve: 6" [15.2 cm]
  • Four: 4" [10.2 cm]
Step 2

Next, thread the 10" [25.4 cm] cord through a closed jump ring. Slide the jump ring to the middle of the cord.

Step 3

Now, slide on a wood bead and move it up to the wood bead.

Step 4

Arrange the cord so it is vertical on your working surface, with the cord ends facing towards you.
TIP: Tape the cord to your working surface to help keep it in place while you work.

Step 5

Fold one of your 6" [15.2 cm] cords in half and align the ends so they are even. Lay it down, horizontally, on your working surface and slide the fold below the vertical cord (in Step 4) so the fold is just to the left of the cords and the ends are pointing out towards the right.

Step 6

Repeat Step 5 with another 6" [15.2 cm] piece but lay it in the opposite direction on top of the vertical cords from Step 4 and the horizontal cords in Step 6.

Step 7

Reach in through the fold of the top piece and grab the ends of the piece from the bottom. Pull them up, through the loop. Reach under the fold of the bottom piece and grab the ends from the top. Pull them up, through the loop.

Step 8

Pull ends and allow the fold of each to slide towards each other until they meet in the middle to form a reef knot.

Step 9

Repeat Steps 5-8 around the vertical cord from Step 4. Work in ascending order down the cord from the remaining 6" [15.2 cm] then the four 4" [10.2 cm] cords.

Step 10

Use a comb to fringe the horizontal cords and the remaining at the bottom of the vertical cords.

Step 11

Trim and shape into a feather.

Step 12

Repeat Steps 1-11 for a second feather earring.

Step 13

Add a fishhook ear wire to each jump ring at the top of your feather earrings.
