Hi, I’m Natalie from Halfway to Harmony, and I am excited to be back again with a cute DIY! I love adding pretty boho details to my room decor, and with Summer approaching, it is a perfect time to freshen up your walls! This macrame wall hanging is the perfect touch, and the materials for it are easy to find. So pick your colors, and make it your own!
See below for details!
Branch (about 2 feet long)
Gold Spray Paint
Step One: Cover the branch in one coat of gold spray paint.
Step Two: Pull the yarn to the length you want the macrame. Double the length and cut the yarn. Cut around 22 total, varying how many you cut by the thickness of the yarn. For example, I cut 4 lengths of my thickest yarn and 8 of my thinnest, to have them look equal when attached to the branch!
Step Three: Take each yarn piece, double it in half and secure it at the top using a slip knot. To do this, put the loop on the top of the branch and pull the ends around the branch and back through the loop. I made my yarn fade from my darkest color to white to create an ombre effect!
Step Four: Cut the yarn at a diagonal, still having the shortest piece at about 1 foot long.
Step Five – Part 1: To create the macrame knots, pull two sections together, keeping the inside two strands side by side, and the outside spread slightly. Pull the right outside strand under the inside two strands and over the the outside left strand. Now, take the left outside strand and pull it over the two inside and strands, and under the right outside strand. This sounds complicated, but after you do it once it’s super easy. Refer to the images above for help!
Step Five – Part 2: Repeat the same step again to finish the macrame knot! Create the knots at the same height across all the yarn strands, grouping two sections together each time. Repeat across again lower down, pulling two sections together and making a macrame knot. This will create diamond shapes in the yarn.
Step Six: To accentuate the diamond shapes further, space the top slip-knots about two inches apart.
Step Seven: String beads at different points on the yarn and attach feathers to the end of every couple pieces. To do this, Put one or two beads at the end of the yarn, and push the ends of two or three feathers through the holes in the beads. This will hold the feathers in place. Get creative with the placement!
