Hi guys, I’m so happy to share with you this quick tutorial for a macrame cactus! The one I made by Chazta from Soulful Notion. This design is a fair sized, (13.5 inches tall!!), but you can make it any size you want, just experiment with different heights before you cut the rope. Another option is instead of yarn, like the one used in this video, you can use different types and sizes of macrame cord, string, ribbon, etc to wrap this. Also, you can make it thicker or thinner by choosing the filler roe accordingly. I chose not to use wire in making this, as I don’t find it necessary, it holds great with glue. If you don’t have a glue gun or strong fabric glue, you can sew these into place as well. Here is exactly what I used to make this cactus:
- 13mm rope cut to 21 inches/53cm and another piece cut to 36 inches/92cm (or you can choose any size and any yarn as your preference)
- Acrylic yarn to wrap it (This also work with any type of yarn)
- 1 wooden bead, 2cm.
- Knitting needle
- Glue gun (Or a thread and tapestry needle to sew the cord together if you don’t want to use the glue gun)
MEASUREMENTS: HEIGHT: 13.5inches/35cm. From top of hanger to bottom of fringe. WIDTH: 9inches/23cm.
