DIY Macrame projects inspire me because of the delicate strength of each project. Their beautiful knots and twists combine everything that’s beautiful about crafting into one gorgeous DIY project. Since learning more about macrame is on my bucket list this year, I loved putting this collection of ideas together for you.
I have to say, so far I can create a simple macrame plant hanger, but I am so inspired by the creations of others I’ve found. I want to spend hours and hours playing with cotton rope!
I hope these 20 lovely macrame projects serve as an inspiration for you to try a new craft. And if you need more inspiration, you can check out these beautiful macrame patterns too!
DIY Macrame Projects
I first discovered the look of macrame when I was a little girl. My grandmother had a beautiful macrame plant holder that hung on the back porch. The delicate macrame knots were strong enough to hold up the terra cotta pot heavy laden with green leaves and flowers that poured over the edges.
I have fond memories of staring up at that macrame planter wondering how those threads could hold up that heavy pot. For me, macrame is so much more than just knots – it was a direct connection to the sweet, summer memories I had with my grandmother.
As the years went by, macrame somehow lost its limelight in the craft world, but it continued to evoke warm memories every time I saw it. Now, macrame projects and crafts are making a comeback as a whole new generation of crafters discovers the beauty and strength associated with them.
While I may never be a master macrame-er (is that even the right term?), I’m excited to delve into it and introduce it to my girls. I think a hanging macrame planter would be perfect for our air plants!
