Here’s What You’ll Need:
- A colorful assortment of embroidery floss
- White yarn
- Measuring tape
- Wooden bead
- Lobster claw keychain
- Sewing/embroidery needle
Here’s How to Make Your Own DIY Macrame Rainbow Keychain
Start by cutting three strands of white yarn 6.5 inches long for the top row of your rainbow. Next, cut three strands of yarn 6 inches long for the middle row, and three strands of yarn 5 inches long for the bottom row.
Using the embroidery floss of your choice for the top row of your rainbow, make a knot at about 1.5 inches from one of the ends on all three of the 6.5-inch yarn strands. This will secure all of the strands of yarn together into one bundle. Wrap the embroidery floss around the bundle of yarn until you are left with another 1.5 inches at the other end. At this point, tie a knot with the embroidery floss to secure it and set the top row aside.
Repeat the same step for the 6-inch bundle of yarn for the middle of the rainbow, wrapping it with your second choice of embroidery floss and leaving 1.5 inches of yarn showing on either end. Also do this for the last row of the rainbow with your third embroidery floss color.
Set aside some embroidery floss to stitch together the rows of the rainbow, as well as the keychain.
Thread an embroidery or sewing needing with the embroidery floss and knot the end. Start by stitching two rows of the rainbow together using multiple stitches until the two are completely stitched together. Tie a knot at the end to keep the rainbow in place.
Using the needle and more embroidery floss, stitch the final row onto the other two and knot it at the end.
With the needle and the embroidery floss, stitch a loop through the top of the rainbow. Add the wooden bead for a decorative touch to the top of the rainbow and keychain to the loop and secure it with a knot.
Lastly, trim the ends of the rainbow and fluff up the yarn.
That’s it! Now you have your own fun DIY Macrame Rainbow Keychain!
