Take a look at the PDF – or check out the video for our step-by-step process on how to make your own plastic rope … and then experiment with your own creative inspiration!

PRO TIP: Once you have your rope, roll it into balls of 10-100 meters. Then you can experiment with making bracelets or keychains (3-5 meters), bags (20-50 meters), wall hangings (100-300 meters) and more. Simply do an online search for traditional macrame patterns – anything you can create with regular rope, you can experiment with plastic rope!

Have fun!
