Macrame Favorites and Tutorial

macrame square knots... how to

It’s no secret that my love for macrame runs deep. As a kid, I made dozens and dozens of those friendship bracelets so when I picked up some rope last year to add some inexpensive decor to our new dining room… the knots came right back to me! I’ve since taught some macrame classes and I even had the chance to demonstrate macrame on the Hallmark channel’s Home and Family show, so I figured it was about time to round up some of my macrame favorites here on the blog!

My personal favorite is the braided mirror I made for Home and Family show. Here’s a peek at my original post about it!

I’m also a HUGE fan of the macrame wall art I made for our dining room… when mounted on a simple canvas backdrop, the macrame is slightly elevated, in my opinion.
