6 DIY Macrame Heart-Shaped Projects That You'll Fall in Love With

Love is in the air, and what better way to embrace the season of romance than by crafting charming macrame creations?

In this blog post, we're sharing six of our favorite macrame projects that will add a touch of love to your life. 

Whether you're having a Valentine’s day or a Galentines day, these projects are perfect for spreading a little handmade love - something special rather than generic. 

Grab your favorite cord - and some chocolates - and get ready to knot your heart out, or a keychain, or a wall hanging. 

We have six projects to keep you busy as you get ready for Valentines day, or any loving occasion.

1. DIY Macrame Heart Coaster (No-Fringe)

We'll begin with our first macrame Valentine's Day pattern: the Macrame Heart-shaped Coaster with a sleek no-fringe design, blending clean aesthetics and simplicity.

This creation uses two fundamental knots – the Square Knot and the Double Half Hitch Knot (DHHK), seamlessly combining style and functionality for tabletop protection.

Whether you're a seasoned macrame enthusiast or a beginner, this project promises to captivate and enhance your crafting journey.

Perfect for home decor or heartfelt gifts, these coasters radiate warmth and love with every sip, transforming your space with the artistry of macrame in a heartbeat.

I'll guide you through creating this beginner-friendly macrame heart coaster, utilizing the Square Knot, DHHK, and a special NO FRINGE knotting technique for a clean finish.

For this project, you'll need 3mm macrame cord, along with a crochet hook.

Upon completion, your heart coaster will measure 6.5" in width and 6" in length, adding a touch of love and artistry to your living space.

Once you've got the hang of this fringe-less knotting method, tidying up the edges of any project becomes a breeze!

2. DIY Macrame Heart Keychain

Our next project on your macrame journey is a delightful and straightforward project: A Heart Pattern Keychain 

What sets this macrame pattern apart is its elegant simplicity, employing just one knot—the reverse clove hitch knot—combined with two striking colors, the purity of milk-white cord intertwined with the warmth of metallic rose gold cord.

This harmonious blend of colors not only creates a visually captivating contrast but also makes it an ideal starting point for beginners eager to explore the art of macrame.

As you delve into crafting this heart keychain, you'll find yourself immersed in a gradual and accessible learning experience.

The reverse clove hitch knot is like a calming routine in macrame.

Doing it over and over is soothing, and it helps you get the hang of macrame easily.

Each time you knot, it's like a little adventure where you learn and build your skills.

But this keychain isn't just a handy accessory—it's a special symbol of love, filled with personal meaning.

I fondly recall crafting these very keychains for my own wedding, where they served as heartfelt reminders of the love and joy shared on that special day.

Whether you're gifting it to a loved one or keeping it for yourself, let each knot serve as a reminder of the love that surrounds you, just as it did on my wedding day.

3. Heart Wave Wristlet Keychain

For our third Valentine's Day project, we've got something extra special in store.

We're crafting a unique heart wave pattern and turning it into a wristlet keychain: introducing the Macrame Heart-wave wristlet keychain!

This project is not just a creative challenge; it also comes in handy with its practical wristlet design.

What makes the Heart Wave Wristlet Keychain stand out is its clever use of the Double Half Hitch knot, a perennial favorite of ours.

The spotlight is on this knot as it forms the heart-shaped design, giving you plenty of chances to improve your knotting skills while making a beautiful accessory.

Yet, what makes this project stand out is its practicality.

Being a wristlet adds hands-free convenience, making it the perfect accessory for people on the move.

Whether you're a busy mom handling many tasks or someone who cherishes freedom of movement, this keychain serves as a stylish and practical solution to keep keys or small essentials within easy reach.

More than a fashion statement, the Heart Wave Wristlet Keychain is a meaningful gift that says a lot.

Its captivating design adds a touch of love to any set of keys or bag, making it a heartfelt gesture for those seeking a bit of charm and practicality in their daily life.

For this project you'll need minimal materials and supplies. All you will need is the following

So, take the plunge into this project, discover the beauty of the Heart Wave knot, and craft something both lovely and useful for yourself or that special someone.

4. Rose Knot Macrame Wall Hanging

Experimenting with a variety of colored cords in different sizes will enhance the depth and texture of your creation.

It's a simple yet creative way to infuse your personal style into this Valentine's Day project.

Crafted using decorative rose knots, this project allows you to unleash your creativity and personalize your decor.

Mix and match colored roses to your heart's content, selecting hues that resonate with your favorite colors or complement your existing interior palette.

Whether you prefer soft pastels or vibrant shades, the choice is yours, ensuring that your heart-shaped wall hanging is as unique as your love story.

Materials needed for this project include:

5. Crown Knot Heart Keychain

Our previous keychain had small interconnected hearts - this keychain is completely different as the whole keychain forms the heart! 

This project invites you to delve into the art of crown knots, weaving a beautiful and intricate pattern reminiscent of a majestic royal crown.

To achieve the desired effect, you'll need a swivel keychain and 2mm Skinny macrame cord, ensuring precision and detail in your craftsmanship.

In this pattern, our spotlight is on a particular knot - The Crown Knot.

Although the crown knot might pose an initial challenge, with dedication and practice, you'll soon conquer it, unlocking the potential to craft stunning designs.

As you tie each knot, you'll see your cord turning into a fancy crown shape, making the base for a special heart-shaped keychain fit for a queen.

6. Fluffy Pom-Pom Heart Keychain

Last, but not least, the sixth macrame is one of my favorites - the Fluffy Pom-Pom Heart Keychain

This delightful project effortlessly combines the coziness of fluffy yarn with the grace of macrame knots, creating a touchable and charming accessory.

To achieve the fluffy pom pom appearance, you'll require a few materials and supplies

For optimal results, we recommend using our bamboo cords for this project.

It's not just soft but also strong, perfectly complementing the fluffy yarn and creating a harmonious mix of textures.

The bamboo cords offer a soft and sturdy base for your fluffy heart keychain, ensuring it lasts long and stays resilient.

Whether you're crafting for yourself or gifting to a loved one, these fluffy heart keychains are guaranteed to bring joy and warmth to anyone lucky enough to receive them.


Our six-part macrame journey has been a delightful exploration of various projects, each bringing its own mix of creativity, skill-building, and heartfelt charm.

From the intricate patterns of the Heart Wave Wristlet Keychain to the regal elegance of the Crown Knot Heart-Shaped Keychain, we've delved into the versatility of macrame techniques and materials.

We've embraced the simplicity of the Reverse Clove Hitch Knot Heart Keychain, felt the romance of the Rose Knot Heart-Shaped Wall Hanging, and enjoyed the whimsy of the Fluffy Heart Keychain.

Throughout this journey, we've found joy in crafting with our hands, infusing each creation with love and personal expression.

As we conclude this crafting spree, let's remember that macrame goes beyond knots and cords—it's about connecting with our creativity and spreading love through handmade gestures.
