The Ultimate Macrame Essentials List

This is a list of all the tools and supplies I recommend for those starting out with Macrame as a hobby or business. 

The main thing you will need is cord, but there are other essential supplies and tools that can make your life easier. There are also a few other items you will need to make wall hangings, wreaths, and other pieces. 

I've assessed the items based on type, category, and whether or not they are necessary or just helpful. Click on the video column to watch the explanation and usage instructions of each tool and material.

Follow me for tutorials and ideas for your macrame projects:
