Plant hangers are cool, okay. And they are great macrame beginner projects. But let’s face it. How many plants can you hang in your house? 

Worry not, sister. If you’re as obsessed with this popular trend as I am, there are ample projects that could and should be made in macrame. Especially when you see how crazy adorable they are. Just take a peek at this bassinet…

Have I got your attention now? Good. Grab your chai tea, mocha latte, or glass of wine, and get ready to be inspired.

Ever thought of a macrame yoga mat strap? Simple, functional, and very cute…

And macrame curtains rock, totally…

But don’t stop there; macrame is perfect for screens or room dividers.

  1. Hi Wendy
    I would like you to do a tutorial on a table path and a curtain in macramé. Thank you very much.
    I am Maria living in Buenos Aires Argentina. regards

  2. The lampshade is beautiful, but I guess what I’m most interested in learning to make are wall hangings. Thank you for your tutorials!

  3. Hi,
    This is Neeti from Mumbai, India. Love Ur work, it’s crazy the stuff you have made, can’t think right now about what else you can do with macrame. I want to learn!
    Nice visual treat! Thanks,

  4. LOVE your window covering above the sink!! Sooo pretty!!! Actually LOVE them all!!!! I did some macrame years ago, would’nt take me long to catch on again. SO, anything would be GREAT!!!

  5. The window covering is gorgeous, my kitchen window needs something like that! I’d love to see a tutorial for that one. Also, the table runner is lovely.

  6. I have been obsessing over that PBteen macrame chanelier since I stumbled upon it a few months ago. . I’ve actually tried it, but for some reason when I do it it gets sort of pinched in in the middle. I’d absolutely love a tutorial for it. Thanks!
