Macrame Wall Hanging for Beginners
"There are so many beautiful macramé wall hangings on my Pinterest boards; I want to make them all! However, before tackling a complicated pattern, I needed to get my feet wet with a simpler, basic macramé design. I stumbled upon the perfect pattern (it is both lovely and moderately easy), but there was a slight problem. The instructions were in French. So, after an afternoon of translating along with some rope-knotting trial and error, I ended up with this sweet, little wall-hanging. This pattern is an easy one for beginners, and it looks awesome, right? It’s a shame to let all my verb conjugations go to waste, so I’m sharing the instructions with you! All you need is a dowel rod, clothesline rope, and scissors!"
- dowel rod, 7/8" circumference, 28" long
- 2 ceramic drawer knobs to use as finials
- Five 100 ft. rolls of cotton clothesline
- masking or painter's tape
NotesDetailed instructions are shown on my blog post, along with photos. Don't be intimidated. This is the perfect project for beginners; you are sure to get "hooked!"
