3 Best Macrame Kits for Beginners

3 Best Macrame Kits for Beginners


Macrame kits are underrated. No seriously. Macrame is the unsung hero of the knitting world and it deserves some respect. Macrame kits are often overlooked for their fancier relatives like cross stitch and punch needle when it comes to fun things to do at home. But macrame is a style of knitting that’s completely in a league of its own, predominantly because it isn’t even “technically” knitting. 

Using a series of intricate knots and ties, you can learn macrame without ever having to pick up a needle, making a macrame diy kit perfect for little ones, sailors looking to transfer their skills to a more artistic outlet, or really anyone looking to expand their creative horizons! 

ClassBento has a growing range of arts and craft kits, so you can have a bit of choice when it comes to looking for macrame kits for beginners, this quarantine season. Still unsure on whether you want to learn macrame? We’ve compiled a few of our macrame DIY kits for you to check out that are perfect for taking your rainy day activities to the next level.

Make macrame keyrings: perfect for kids and knitting beginners

As far as our macrame kits for beginners are concerned, this little craft box is a perfect place to start. Run by the fine people at Maker’s Loft in Sydney, Cammeray’s own creative superhub has been producing some of the best workshops, courses and arts and craft kits Sydney has to offer since 2010, and a little quarantine isn’t holding them back! 

With the help of a macrame master on the live stream, you’ll be shown four fundamental knot-tying techniques you’ll need to learn macrame, and how to put them into practice as you craft up a storm designing your own set of keyrings. 

If you’re completely new to not just macrame but arts and craft kits in general, this is an easy and relaxing place to start. The craft box will contain everything you need to get started (with the exception of scissors) and you’ll even get practice chord to make sure you can nail down the macrame knots before starting your piece. This is also a great choice if you’re looking at things to do at home for kids! Sinking their teeth into a macrame kit is an awesome way to break up the homeschooling day, and allows them to have a creative outlet and activity above and beyond watching telly.
