Macrame 10 Ways
One of the biggest home decor and craft trends lately has definitely been macrame. From wall hangings to plant holders and many other home accessories, the art of knotting string has greatly surpassed yarn crafts like knitting and crochet. It certainly has a more boho-chic and modern look to it. Personally, it doesn't quite fit in with our traditional and very Pottery Barn-ish decor. But I think it's the perfect addition if you have a lot of boho, eclectic decor in your home. Macrame would also blend in well with casual coastal decor. Pictured: Large Macrame Wall Hanging
The most popular, and one of the easiest to make yourself (depending on the size and design), is a macrame wall hanging.
This hanging macrame chair is definitely not a DIY, but if you have the space and love boho decor, it's a very unique and beautiful piece to have.
Macrame bunting, just like any other kind of bunting or decorative banner, can be hung over a fireplace, and entryway vignette, or above a small headboard. This macrame bunting would be lovely in a neutral nursery.
This macrame hanging storage is perfect for a small space, like a bathroom or entryway. With little hooks attached, it's just the thing for organizing jewelry and accessories or for hanging keys and other smaller items by the door.
Large macrame panels can serve as either curtains or a decorative room divider. To add more privacy, simply layer white fabric panels underneath.
This look could go either inside or outside. Cluster a few macrame plant hangers for a very boho-chic vibe.
To bring a little boho-chic into your dining area, try this beautiful macrame table runner. It makes for a lovely centerpiece, though you could also use it as a decorative table runner on a sideboard, mantle, or entryway table.
Accessories like the macrame plant holders pictured above don't have to just be used as plant hangers. You can fill them with decorative bowls to use as hanging storage, or fill them with tealight holders for some outdoor hanging candles.
Another great use for the large macrame panels is a photo or ceremony backdrop. It's perfect for a boho-chic wedding!
I'm not sure how easy these macrame decorative bowls would be to make. They involve knotting and connecting rings. Though they're certainly worth buying ready-made. They would look great clustered on a counter top, table, or an oversized coffee table. Fill them with fruit, decorative spheres, or leave them as-is. I think they're pretty enough all on their own, don't you?
