Project Description

Your assignment will be to make your very own macrame wall hanging. I will teach you how to do 3 basic knots: lark's head, square knot, and spiral knot. Once you have mastered these knots, I will teach you how to create patterns with those knots!

I recommend keeping your piece between 7-12" wide for your first try!

Materials you will need:

  • Wooden dowel, stick, or pipe Hobby Lobby or Home Depot
  • Yarn or twisted cotton rope Knot and Rope (1/8" or 3/16" is recommended)
  • 2 S-Hooks (and a clothing rack to hook them on) Home Depot OR The Container Store (I just bought some from The Container Store and they are much bigger!)
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Embellishments: metallic washi tape (Michaels)  macrame rings (Amazon or Joanns) copper couplings in place of beads (Home Depot)

For this class, you will upload the following:

  • A picture of the materials you will be using
  • A final picture of your completed piece
