Cut four lengths of cotton macrame rope into 120 inches. Then, loop the four strings through the wooden ring-shaped bead and bring all eight ends to meet. 

Step 2: Add the top bead

Fit all eight ends of the cotton macrame rope through the hole in one of the large wooden beads. Slide the bead up to meet the wooden ring-shaped bead. Tip: If you’re having a tough time sliding the rope through a bead, twist the end of your ropes as you push them through. If needed, you can also use a rotary tool to enlarge the hole of your bead.

Step 3: Separate ropes and oval beads

Group the macrame ropes into four pairs of two. Then, add an oval bead to each pair of ropes. Slide each bead up and stop about nine inches down from the ring-shaped bead

Step 4: Pair opposite ropes and add more oval beads

Pair the ropes opposite each other and repeat Step 3 with the four remaining oval beads. Your beads should be about 8 in. / 20 cm. down from the first set of oval beads.

Step 5: Add the bottom bead

Step 6: Finish with a knot
