STEP 1- TAKE A STRING/ROPE/MACRAME
You have to take 2 ropes together. The length of the rope is 30cm each. You can take jute rope also or take any strings of any color. Now take a keyring and make a cow hitch knot using both the rope together. First, fold both the rope together in half and put the folded end into the keyring now remove the ends of the rope from it. Here your cow hitch knot is done.
STEP 2- START WRAPPING
Now after cow hitch knot, you can see four ropes. Now take rope number 1 and take it over the middle ropes that is the rope no. 2 and 3 and Then get the rope below the 4th rope.
Now take the 4th rope and take it below the middle of both the ropes now take the rope up through the hole made by the last piece of rope. Next, you have to pull the first and last rope tight in opposite directions. If you don’t the step don’t worry I am putting an image so that you get more clarification of this step.
STEP 3- REPEAT
You have to repeat step 2 again and again until you get the perfect length for your key chain.
STEP 4- YOUR FIRST KEYCHAIN IS READY!
After completing the wrap. Take all four ropes together and tie them with cotton thread by wrapping them around the ropes. You can also use more than one cotton rope if you want. It just adds more beauty to it. It totally depends on you that how cotton thread you want to use. Now after wrapping the cotton thread tie a double knot to secure and cut the extra remaining thread. Now you have to brush the ropes and at last trim the rope to give it an even look. And here your first Keychain is ready.
STEP 1- TAKE A MACRAME
In the first step, you have to take 3 pieces of macrame. Here I am taking three different colors of macrame but you can also take single color macrame.
STEP 2- KNOT
Now take all three macrame together and tie a knot at the end. And start braiding it. First, take the orange macrame which is on the right-hand side bring it to the middle of both the macrame that is yellow and white. Now take the yellow Macrame which is on the left side and bring it to the middle of both macrame ice orange and white. Now do the same with white macrame.
