Macrame DIY Tutorial Boho Earrings

Looking to add a new look and style to your outfits?

Why not accessorize your ears with these trendy-looking boho-chic DIY macramé earrings!

Welcome to another macramé DIY blog tutorial.

Today, I will be going over how to macrame a pair of bohemian-style earrings by using 1 unique knot.

If you are new to macramé or DIY hand craft jewelry, this is a great place to get started.

For all the macramé lovers out there, who enjoy fashion and accessorizing as much as I do, this blog post is for you!

We will be learning how to create a pair of boho-chic macramé earrings using one type of knot.

This is a fairly simple project and super-fun to make.

By the end of this blog post, not only will you learn how to make a pair of stylish earrings, but you’ll also have a pair of new earring to wear out!

This project doesn’t require you to have the exact same materials and supplies as me.

If like to use different color cord or prefer using different types of material, by all means, go ahead.

Don’t be afraid to try out different things – I encourage to use your imagination and creativity!

These are the materials and supplies that I’ve used. Feel free to follow along and partake in this project.

The cord I have used today is a single-strand Rose Gold cotton cord, with gold metallics running through it.

I personally like to choose color that will match my outfit.

We will be practicing one main macramé knot today: the Pipa knot.

This knot will be repeated twice in order to make our earrings. We will also use an Overhand knot to seal off the project.

If you aren’t familiar with this type of knot, check out my tutorial on YouTube first before getting started with this project.

Get Started

Step 1:

We are going to start by preparing the earrings.

Take a pair of pliers to ply open the hook at the bottom of the first earring to place one metal ring through it.

Use the pliers again to seal the loop back. Repeat with the other earring hook.

Step 2:


Take one strand of 50 cm cord and weave the string through the earring ring.


The front end of the cord will be the shorter part, so leave 10-15 cm of string on that side.

Take the long end of the cord, and make a loop on top of the short end.

Wrap the long end behind and through to the front, following the same loop we just made.

Straighten out the loops within the knot by pulling on one section at a time, to ensure they are all even.

Step 6:


Turn the knot upside down, and seal off the previous work with a double Overhand knot using the two cord ends.


There is no need to pull too tightly, just make sure the cords are secure.
