DIY Macrame Jar Candle Holder + How to Estimate Cord



Hey everyone, macrame is super trendy right now, as is everything natural and boho-inspired, so a lot o these pretty jars have been popping up on my Pinterest, seemed like an archivable project to get my hands on so I decided to make a tutorial on it as well. I choose to make a simple and quick pattern as to not discourage anyone not tempted to spend a whole day on a project.

The only supplies you need for this one is a used and clean glass jar and the cotton cord itself.

In the video, I also show you how you can estimate the amount of cord needed for a macrame craft like this, as well and the step-by-step to make one like mine.

DIY Beaded Macrame Keychains + Fiskars Unboxing

Learn how you can make these macrame keychains that are also great gifts

Olá everyone!
Macrame keychains have been hugely on-trend, and I really like the look of them.
I already made one for my car keys and I think I'll hand another on my day-to-day backpack.

Instead of using a soft cotton cord like the most common ones out there, I decided to use waxed cotton cord, you can't fray the edges on this one, but it will hold the shape much better over the usual wear and tear of being inside your bag.

I was planning on this project to have a separate video, but a Fiskars unboxing came along, and although I hate to sound "salesy" I was super excited to use their products since they are not so usual here in Portugal.

Watch the video below for the tutorial + unboxing.



DIY Reusable Mesh Grocery Bags



Mesh bags are so simple, and there's probably already a ton of posts and videos about it, but still, I wanted to try and make them my style and in a way that you can personalize it. I ended up coming with these two styles, one with a pretty trim and another (faster to make) without it.

Either one of these is perfect to use on your next grocery/produce shopping run, and you won't need any more plastic bags.

DIY 3 Styles of Macrame Friendship Bracelets


I haven't done a bracelet video in a while and whilst brainstorming ideas for my next video I came to youtube’s community tab for insights. The vast majority of you voted for macrame friendship bracelets, so get your threads ready because here they come!

I settled on 3 styles of bracelets all of them closing with a button and using waxed cotton cords. If you want them to have a more grown-up look you can make them with a satin or nylon cord and close with crimp ends and chain. Once you get the hang of it you can make a bunch pretty quickly. Wear them yourself or share with friends, since I’m sure they will love them.

Watch the video below for the how-to.
