Materials Used:  Macrame DIY Headband

– Macrame cord – Glue gun – Glue stick – Scissors – Elastic

Step One: Measure The Macrame Cord

First, you’ll need to measure three pieces of macramé cord. To do this, double the strand to have a double thickness. This will make sure the final headband is nice and thick.

Step Two: Secure The Strands

Next up, you need to secure the strands. I cut and then unraveled a small amount of macramé cord, roughly 12cm, and tied it around the ends of the three double cords.

Step Three: Make a Braid

Next up, it’s time to put all those childhood years of braiding to the test!

- Lay the three stands side by side. - Move the left strand over the top of the middle strand. This is now your middle strand. - Move the right side strand over the top of the middle stand. This now becomes your middle strand.

How to braid:

Cut a 12-cm piece of macramé cord and unravel it so that you have just a single strand. Use this to tie off the end of your headband braid securely so that it doesn’t come unraveled.

Step Four: Fasten The End of The Braid
