  • Natural Twisted Rope
  • Colorful yarn
  • Tapestry needle
  • Felt in your choice of colors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors


  • Determine the number of layers that you want for your macramé rainbow and cut ropes accordingly. Place the rope cutouts on a flat surface (forming a rainbow pattern) and cut their open ends evenly.
  • Grab any one of the rope cutouts and a yarn (color of your choice). Leave an inch of the rope cutout from any one of its open ends and tie a knot with the yarn around the rope.
  • Align the smaller end of the yarn with the rope towards the inner side and start to wrap the yarn around the rope, making sure that the wrapping is nice, firm and even. .
  • Wrap the yarn all the way to the other side of the rope, but make sure to leave another inch on the open end of the rope.
  • Keeping 2 or 3 inches of yarn on hand, cut off the rest of the yarn from the bundle. Insert a tapestry needle through the remaining yarn and draw the needle through the wrapped yarn (4 or 5 wraps will do) Pull it out again. Cut off the remaining yarn.
  • Similarly, wrap the rest of the rope cutouts; making sure to leave an inch intact on the open ends of each piece of rope.
  • Grab some colored felt fabric and trace spiral flower patterns on them. Cut out the traced patterns. If you need a template for a spiral flower pattern, there are several free patterns available online.
  • Grab a spiral felt cutout and roll it from its outer end towards the center. Apply hot glue on the center and press the rolled part against it to secure the flower pattern. Cut out small leaf patterns from green colored felt fabrics.
  • Take a piece of felt (enough to cover the rainbow pattern which will be created with the ropes). Use hot glue to attach the shortest yarn wrapped rope on the bottom side of the felt. Place the rope by forming a curve shape.
  • One by one, glue the rest of the ropes into the same curved pattern.
  • Use sharp scissors to trim the felt along the open sides of the ropes.
  • Open the twisted ends of the ropes.
  • To give the macramé rainbow an even cuter look, attach pompoms along the top side.
  • Attach the felt flowers on either open sides of the macramé rainbow to complete the craft.
