With some cotton cord and the ability to tie a few basic knots, you can create beautiful macrame projects. Macrame is a type of handiwork, similar to knitting or crochet, in which you knot yarn, string, or cord together to form decorative accessories and art pieces.

Since macrame doesn't require special tools, many people consider it an easy hobby to get started with. With the right macrame cord and some creativity, you’ll be amazed at how many different pieces you can make.

When shopping for supplies for macrame projects, you’ll want to look for a cord specifically made for macrame.

That's because regular yarn or string won’t be strong enough to hold up to the knots in your design. Plain yarn is also harder to unknot, so if you make a mistake, it’s much more challenging to correct.

Macrame cotton cord is made from tightly twisted strands of natural cotton. It comes in various sizes, ranging from a tiny 2mm to as thick as 8mm.

Choosing the right size cord for your project is essential, so you'll want to check the materials list in each tutorial carefully. Otherwise, you risk your creation not turning out or holding up well over time.

Thicker cotton cords are great for macrame projects because they’re strong and create a stunning texture in your pieces.

GANXXET's 6 or 8mm macrame cotton cord is perfect for chunky projects, like larger wall hangings, hammocks, and plant holders. The cord's natural texture gives many pieces their signature rustic charm.

And since it's so soft, your fingers won't mind knotting this thick cord. It's very user-friendly and easy to work with.

The first thing you'll need to do once you get your thick cotton cord is to pick a project to try. Once you know what you're making, you can start cutting the cord.

To ensure you get your strands the right length, read the directions on the pattern carefully and then measure twice and cut once. When you have everything ready, brush up on the basic macrame knots, like the Square Knot, Lark's Head Knot, and Spiral Knot.

These will be your go-to moves when completing your project. Start at the top of the piece and work your way downward. As you're tying, make sure to keep your knots tight but not cramped together.

Now that you know the basics, here are a few chunky macrame projects to try with cotton cord in 6 or 8mm.

Magazine or book holders
Plant hangers
Room dividers

No matter what project you choose, be creative and have fun with it. With the right supplies and patience, you'll be making fantastic macrame pieces in no time!
