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.
