Make-ramé™ Kit - Old Glory

  • Like all of our kits, this is a Solid Oak original. designed right here in Rhode Island, USA. American pride has many levels, but one constant symbol of our freedom and the diverse richness of our 50 states is our national flag. This unique macramé kit design lets you knot your own flag hanging. It's large, measuring approximately 14 in. W x 32 in. H (36 cm W x 81 cm H). The flag uses the same high-quality cotton cord as used in our other Make-ramé kits. Each flag color - deep red, natural unbleached, and rich navy blue - comes wound neatly on a spool for tangle-free measuring.

    A few people have wondered if this flag design is hanging correctly, with the blue field at the top left. We assure you, this is correct. According to the United States government's documents on flag etiquette, the blue field is at top left for both horizontal and vertical display.

    Solid Oak's Make-ramé™ DIY home décor is a retro art form with modern style. A few simple types of knots are used to create this amazing piece of wall art that will last for years. Create it by yourself to decompress or have a macramé party with family and friends!

    This kit includes:
    - One 54.5 yd. (50 m) spool each color: deep red, natural white, and navy blue 2mm thick macramé cord
    - One length of natural color thick 4 mm cord for the tasseled hanger
    - Natural wood branch hanging rod
    - 50 natural wood beads - one to represent each star
    - Illustrated instructions with details for each kind of knot used, as well as walking you through the steps to create a beautiful flag to display

    All you need for tools will be scissors, a measuring stick, household tape, and a little bit of glue.

    The knots are truly simple, but a real newbie at macramé might be more comfortable starting with one of our smaller kits.

    Time needed to create: 8-10 Hours
    Finished size = about 14 in. x 32 in. (36 cm x 81 cm)

Old Glory

Finished it and love it. I haven't done macrame in years. The directions were easy to follow. I will be doing another one for sure.

Michelle Brooks

I love the design and the simplicity of it!

Carol Wisner

I love doing macramé. These kits have everything you need.


Ole' Glory is a beautiful piece. It was a challenge for me as I haven't macramed much. When I personally figured out the correct way to tie it was easy. Thank you for the good instructions.

Christmas Gift

No done with it yet. Having a problem doing the clove hitch knot on the bottom of the blue part.

Please email to tell us more detail about what's causing you trouble, and we will try to help!

Was easy to follow instructions; from cutting the cord to every knot to be completed. The flag looks great. Thank you Solid Oak

Great kit, needs extras

First time macromer, and once I got the hang of things, this was a quick working piece. One issue I had was that I wish the kit had a handful of extra bead. Just in case something happens, it is very hard to find the correct size to replace ones that may have gotten chewed on by a dog.

LOL! There should be one or two extra beads in the kit. Regardless, if you were short on beads, even because your dog chewed some of them... just send us an email. We can send more along, for low or no cost to you. We love pets, too! We try to hold our prices down, and tossing in a lot of extra parts in every kit would make them more expensive for everyone.

Threading 2 strands through bead

It is very very difficult to thread 2 strands opposite directions through the beads

Sorry you are frustrated! Did you make pointed ends on the cords with tape? That generally makes it easy, and is recommended in the kit. If any of the beads - which are hand-drilled - is a bit fuzzy with wood fibers, you can clean the hole with a bead reamer, a household nail, a pencil, or a knitting needle...
