Macrame Christmas tree pattern

3 wooden beads 12mm dia (we use this one here from Hobby Craft)

1 x 50 cm 1mm white string


Measuring tape


Weaving needle


  • Fold your strings with one end 50cm long.
  • Fix the strings on a board or piece of cardboard with pins, making sure the 50cm ends are inside.
  • Use the long ends to tie a Square Knot (learn how to make a Square Knot here)
  • Tie a Sinnet of Square Knots until you have run out of string
  • Tuck the ends of the strings at the back of the sinnet, trim the excess
  • Fold the thin white string in half, tie a simple knot to create a loop and pass through a bead.
  • Fold the sinnet 7-8 times to create a tree shape
  • With the help of the weaving needle pass the white string through the tree
  • Add the two wooden beads
  • Tie one or two simple knots and trim excess string

Have fun making them in different colours and sizes!
