DIY this Macrame Vibe Wall Hanging // MAKE THIS – S1 • E4

Welcome to Episode 04 of my series, MAKE THIS!

Today we're making a macrame-inspired wall hanging that won't take very long, but can add big impact to your room.

BOHO VIBES

This wall hanging has a macrame vibe, but doesn't require a pattern or any high-level braiding skills.

As with most of the projects we're making in this season, color & texture are the focal point. Bright colors and lots of variety in texture gives the piece a super boho feel — cozy but still carefree and fun.

You can customize it to your space with colors & texture and its super easy to play around with as you're making it to find a look you like.

  YOU'LL NEED:

DIY Macrame Wall Hanging

  • Yarn —
    • 2-3 neutral colors, different textures
    • 2-3 bold colors, different sizes & textures
  • Macrame Cord
  • Embroidery Thread - bundles x the number of tassels you want
  • Two Hoops — small & large
  • 4 Wooden / Chunky Beads
  • Scissors

p.s. I love this Fray Block to keep the ends of my yarn from fraying

 

HOW TO MAKE A MACRAME VIBE WALL HANGING

Start with your larger hoop.

This is the back hoop in your piece and you'll put mostly neutral yarn on this one with just a little pop of color.

Measure out your yarn according how long you want it to hang when its folded in half. I wanted mine to be about 18" long, so I measured a 40" piece (20" when folded over = room to trim it.

Cut a few pieces at your determined length. Start attaching it to your ring by creating a loop and pulling the ends through then tugging to tighten.

Continue adding pieces, varying texture and adding a couple strands of colored yarn. You can untwist or unbraid a couple pieces for extra texture

Add yarn until the bottom 1/3 of your ring is full. Then set it aside

Fill out your smaller hoop.

This is the front hoop in your piece and you'll put mostly colored yarn on this one with maybe a touch of neutral to tie them together.

I measured my pieces about 46-50" long since I wanted this front piece to be smaller / narrower but longer.

Continue adding your yarn pieces until your small hoop is 1/3 full on the bottom.

Connect your hoops.

Cut a piece of embroidery thread about 18"-24" long, Tie one end around both rings at the top. Start wrapping the long end around both rings to bind them together.

When you're done, create a loop about 4-6" long at the top of your hoops and tie the tail on to secure.

Thread three of your chunky beads onto this loop — you can tie if you'd like.

Give it a trim.

Move the yarn on the top ring out of the way and trim the bottom. You can do any cut for this, but I went with a triangle where the ends were longer and the middle was shorter at the point.

You can then bring the front ring pieces back and trim them. I did these the opposite way and trimmed them into a point where the sides were shorter and the middle was longer.

Add a tassel.

I made an embroidery thread tassel (tutorial here) and added a chunky bead to the top loop like we just did with the top of our hoops.

I tied this tassel onto one of the front pieces to add some interest and texture and bring one of the beads down onto the threaded part to tie it all together.
