Hello my creative friends! I can’t wait to share my latest creative endeavor with you! I have been totally crushing on macrame these last few months, and I discovered it’s waaaay easier than it looks. Especially if you want to create a simple project. Today I’ll show you how to macrame this easy wall hanging that can be completed in under and hour. You’ll only need four basic supplies for this tutorial!
How to Macrame Tutorial Supplies:
First cut twelve pieces of the cotton cord at about one and a half yards long each. Your length of cord will determine the length of your project. I would start with that amount, and make adjustments when you get a feel for how long the project ends up being.
Fold your cord pieces in half, and loop knot them on your stick or twig. My twig is just one I found in the yard, and is about 24″ in long. Be sure to space your cord pieces about an inch apart from each other on your stick.
After your cord is in place, work downwards knotting your cord four strings at a time, every two inches all the way across. Add your wood beads, and knot again. You will also want to go back and forth beading four pieces of string at a time.
I also left some extra cording on the bottom just so it visually had some more length to it. I really like the natural look of the beads, but you could easily paint or stain them!
For the most part, I have kept my macrame projects really simple. I love having a project that I can start and finish in just one evening. I hope you enjoyed learning how to macrame and that you’ll be making your own easy wall hanging soon! Happy crafting!
