DIY Macrame Wall Hanging

So, I’ve tried something new. This really came out of nowhere. I found a mop refill at my local thrift store, and for no reason at all ( other than thinking I might need this someday),  I grabbed it for just 50 cents.

A few weeks went by, but on a rainy weekend I decided to make something with it. Why not make a wall hanging, right? I had everything I needed, including some old beads and a wooden dowel. Of course, you can also use yarn or rope for this project. I wanted to use what I already had.

After checking out a bunch of YouTube Macrame tutorials, I started with these simple knots.

Here’s my favorite tutorial. This lady explains and shows it so well. I tied around 33 strings at approximately 35 inches long. The rod is 27 inches long. I added several beads and tied a piece of twine to the rod.

Since this was my first attempt at Macrame, I kept it pretty simple.

I like it. It adds texture and interest to the wall. Macrame wall hangings can be pretty pricey like this one from Urban Outfitters.

    1. Janis, it’s so nice to hear from a fellow TN girl. So happy you’re enjoying my blog and projects. Making the wall hanging was so fun. I think I’ll make more. I spotted a mop refill at the Bargainhunt store today for next to nothing. Haha!

  2. Wow! You did a great job. I really like it and you sure can’t beat the price! You continue to amaze me with all your talent.
