DIY Macrame Rainbow Ornaments

macrame rainbow christmas tree ornaments

A couple months back when I made some diy macrame rainbow keychains– I KNEW I would be bringing them back for Christmas time.  They are the cutest little things and I love the little rainbow ornaments on my tree & I also decided to add the rainbow ornament to my stocking with some yarn pom poms as a cute little charm.

The how to is the same from the macrame keychains, the only difference is the end, there is no adding a keychain holder and you just tie the yarn to make a loop for hanging! Follow along for the material list and the step by step or scroll for the final cute little rainbow ornaments!

Tie yarn to the end of the rainbow (making sure wire and rope are inside) and wrap around until wire and rope are covered, tie at other end.

After all three rainbow arches are covered in yarn, tie one piece of yarn to the top rainbow arch.

Glue all three rainbow arches together. (you can also sew, but I just always find glueing easier)
