Easy Macrame Dolls (using Paracords)

Posted on Jul 3, 2015

Sooo I did warn you that we would be having fun with Paracords this Summer!! Here is another little paracord craft ? actually it is a macrame craft ? but it works perfectly for left over bits and pieces of paracord ? little Dollies! We love turning these paracord dolls into Keychains and Zipper Pulls and think they are simply the cutest.

Easy Macrame Dolls - use thick string or paracords or macrame string. Turn these into key chains, zipper pulls etc

We have actually go TWO versions of these ? one with bead head and one without a bead. I like the both for different reasons.. the bead headed paracord doll is just CUTE! I love the combination of string, bright paracord and wooden head. The paracord only doll (see it here on YouTube) however,  is more ?do-able? ? simply because all you need is your paracord strands and nothing more. You don?t need a special bead or string nor a piece of wire etc? nice and easy.

To make these little dolls, you use the same technique as for this basic Paracord Bracelet ? so learn how to do one and you can make the other!

  • 16 inches of the paracord colour
