Hey y’all! Many of you may have some extra time on your hands, so why not learn a new skill? Our beginner macrame keychain tutorial is a great way to learn a couple of basic macrame knots and to create your very own accessory in 15 minutes! You’ll be learning to use the versatile Lark’s Head knot and the popular Half Square knot. There’s even a handy video where I go through the steps :)
