I love making homemade wall décor for my home, and this simple DIY macramé wall hanging is super easy and an instant way to add style to your home.
I have been remodeling my master bedroom over the past month and I really wanted to make a macramé wall hanging for the room. This type of wall hanging is super easy to make completely your own. You can make it large or small, or change the color of the rope. You can also use a wooden dowel, copper pipe, or even a tree branch to hang the rope from.
Here is how I made mine. I used:
- 3 lb kitchen twine
- ¾ inch my ¼ inch piece of trim
I started by cutting 26 pieces of the twine at 6 ft lengths. You want to cut extra length because the knotting will make the length shorter, and you will want to make sure you have enough.
I folded the strings in half and secured them between each other like this:
I spaced them apart at about 1 inch.
Start by tying two of the strings together, which means you will actually have 4 strings tied together. The trick here is to keep the knot loose until you have it at the right length. I just eyeball this. There’s no real exact science to this.
Once I had them all tied, I then separated the knots, taking 2 strings from each knot and tying it together with two strings from the knot next to it. I then tied them together slightly down.
I then took two of the new knots and tied them together about 2 inches from the knots above.
The last knot I decided to do was to take 2 string from each knot and tie them together. What happens is the previous knot had 8 strings so I left 6 hanging and tied the other two together. It broke up the line and gave it a bit of interest.
I could have kept going, but I really liked the way it looked at this point. I hung it on my mantel and let all the strings hang. I then decided to cut the strings at an angle, being longer in the middle.
The last thing I did was tie a piece of the twine at both ends of the piece of wood. This is what you will use to hang the DIY macramé wall hanging.
That’s all there is to it!
I love the simplicity of the colors. It allows the pattern to be the star of the show.
This took me approximately 1 hour to make start to finish. Try making one for yourself!
