The macrame trend is in full force, and it shows no sign of slowing down. This traditional craft can be used to make everything from macrame plant hangers to mini macrame jewelry. For a useful project, why not make a watch strap? It's fashionable, functional, and totally unique. You can even use it to replace an old strap on a well-loved watch. Here's how to make it happen. Things You'll Need Cotton cord or yarn Watch face Scissors Jewelry pliers Tape Ribbon clamp ends (2) 12mm jump rings (2) Jewelry clasp Tips : - If you have a watch with an old strap, simply cut it off. You can also find watch faces in the jewelry section of most craft stores. Another option is to buy an inexpensive watch and remove the straps. - Cotton cord works best for this project. Nylon, polyester, and hemp are too stiff, so they won't hold the knots very well. Step 1 Cut a strand of cord measuring just under one yard. This should be more than enough, but it's always best to overestimate. Remember, you can always cut away the excess, but you can't add back. Step 2 Repeat five more times until you have a total of six strands. Fold each one in half so that the ends meet. Step 3 Insert one folded strand up and through one edge of the watch strap. This is the first step for a larkshead knot, an easy knot for starting a macrame project. Step 4 Slip your fingers through the loop and pull the strands through. Step 5 To tighten the knot, pull the strands downward. This creates one larkshead knot. Step 6 Repeat Steps 3 through 5 with the remaining strands. Continue until the entire width of the watch face is full. The knots shouldn't be cramped and tight. Instead, they should fit comfortably side by side. Tip Use a strip of tape to keep the watch face in place. This will make it easier to work. Step 7 Separate the strands into groups of four. You'll be starting with the first set. Step 8 Separate the middle two strands from the left and right strands. This will set you up for a square knot, a basic macrame knot. Step 9 Take the left strand and bend it over the middle two. It should "spill" into the right side. Place the right strand and place it directly on top. Step 10 Move the right strand under the two middle strands. Bring it up and through the "loop" created by the left strand. Step 11 At the same time, pull both ends outward. This finishes half of one square knot. Tip The knots should be snug and compact, but don't overdo it. Extra tight knots will just warp the pattern. You should be able to clearly see the strands weaved into each other. Step 12 Now, take the right strand. Bend it over the center, and place the left strand on top of it. Step 13 Move the left strand under the middle. Bring it up and through the right loop. Step 14 Pull the ends until the knot tightens. This completes one square knot. Step 15 Make another square knot by repeating Steps 9 through 15.
