Macrame Snowflake Supplies

All you need for this craft is single-ply 3mm macrame cord and a 1.25 inch circle. I actually used a key ring. If you get something a little bigger or use a wooden circle, that is fine too!

My snowflake actually has 3 different colors: white, tan and beige. I got a small 3 pack of the cordage at michael’s, but if you are a frequent macrame crafter, you can get this macrame bundle on amazon

Macrame Snowflake Knots

You start with a lark’s head knot to attach the strings to the key ring. Then you’ll be using a square knot the remainder of the time. The final points are just a regular knot. 

Here is a guide to four basic macrame knots for beginners
