Ways to incorporate Macramé in your home!
Hi friends! I’m sure that you have been spotting all the woven wall hangings (aka, macramé) in all the stores. Even though macramé is not “new” it is definitely a recent trend. One of the greatest aspects of this emerging trend is that it is really inexpensive. Which means that when it fades away, you’ll have no qualms about tossing it away.
Today, I am going to blog about ways to easily and inexpensively incorporate macramé into your home. If you have craft skills, everything on this blog post can be made. Etsy has many sellers that sell macrame patterns for you to DIY! But, if this ancient art form of knotting is not for you, just search for “macrame” and/or “woven wall hangings” for Etsy Stores that sell items.
When I was doing researching for this post, it surprised me to learn how many articles are made from macrame. I already knew about hammocks, chairs, wall hangings, plant holders and pendant shades. But I also came across baskets, bookshelves, dream catchers, curtains, hanging cribs, baby swings, and jewelry items. Whatever your favorite form of macrame is, they add instant warmth to any room – and give off a vintage vibe.
NEW DESIGN TRENDS I AM LOVING: MACRAMÉ
Woven Wall hangings – This is probably the most common way you will see macrame, and one of my personal favorites. I love seeing them in bedrooms and they look great hanging over a bed or a crib.
Chairs/Hammocks – The last time I was in a hammock was over a year ago. A group of friends went on a girl’s birthday weekend to the Miami Edition in Florida. The hotel has cleverly created little hideaways around the property and we stumbled across a hammock with a ton of pillows. Even though summer is several months away, a hammock instantly reminds me of warm, lazy days and naps in the sun.
Lighting – I love the way the rope dissipates the light in these boho light fixtures! They are equally pretty lit or unlit.

If you have never knotted, here is a link to a page entitled Super Easy DIY Macrame Wall Hanging Tutorial. The finished piece is pictured above. In addition to supplies, step-by-step photos, it looks like there is a link to a video. It’s been a long time since I made anything out of macrame, so this tuitional looks like the right place for me to get started.
