I love sliding knots. They’re easy to make once you get the hang of it and they have such a flexible fit that you can adjust them to wear anywhere on your arm candy party! In case you’re wondering, the other bracelet in the pic is the DIY Macrame Bracelet by Honestly WTF.
Very cute and fun way to learn macrame. Now, on to the tutorial!
Tie and adjustable knot on each end. They may seem daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it, they are easy peasy! Here is a good tutorial on how to make adjustable knots. Here is another adjustable knot tutorial that I like.
Then you just pinch and slide your bracelet to its desired length! You can optionally add a dab of glue, but make sure it is just the knot so it will still slide. You don’t want to get it on the base. Use a thread burner or lighter to seal the ends of the cord so it doesn’t unravel. Once your glue is dry, snip it or leave it, depending on how you like the ends to look!
PS – I party here!
