The blog has been quiet since I went on vacation last week, but I’ve been Pinterest-ing up a storm and I have a new obsession: fiber arts, up to and including macramé. I’ve dabbled in it previously–a former roommate taught me some basic knots for making jewelry–but I find myself wanting now to make big wall hangings or plant hangers. Here are the tutorials I’ve found along the way.
One project I know I want to make ASAP is this macramé herb garden from Sow & Dipity:
Or I might make these colorful quick plant hangers from Brit & Co out of t-shirt material (I so want all of the colors):
Crafty Patti on YouTube has a good tutorial for a wall-hanging that taught me some knots I didn’t already know!
I’m also looking real hard at these dip-dyed, lacy wall hangings from Green Wedding Shoes:
If you want to work smaller, upgrade your watchband with this tutorial from SMP Craft (changing a watch band is really, really easy and a great way to perk up a watch–I used to do watch repairs and battery changes as a job):
Or make this bracelet along with Macrame School:
Or go simpler with these really pretty macramé bracelets from Honestly WTF:
I love this macramé trivet from We Are Scout. It’s super minimalist and just classy AF. Probably too classy for me.
You can 100% incorporate macramé into your wardrobe, too. Check this racerback tank from Trash To Couture:
Which you can wear while you lounge in your macramé hammock:
Go forth and knot, friends.
