Nothing adds a touch of homeliness to a house quite like a bit of macramé. The flowing of the cords in the breeze with flower pots encased in their embrace. It is like the hanging gardens of Babylon, one of the Eight Wonders of the Ancient World.
Whether they are just for decoration or serving a utility, macramé is just stunning in a home. I had never tried making them before because I thought they were too technical to make. That is, until I encountered the do it yourself macramé kit.
The kit makes it so much easier to make them by far, and now I have a few stunning pieces in my home. The ambiance they bring to the place is quite wholesome. If you want to add a touch of yourself to your home, then the DIY macramé kit is just the thing that you need.
So What Do You Need To Start Making Your Own Macramé?
3/16″ (5 mm) cord
Some brass rings (2-3″ for the Plant Hangers and a 14″ ring for the Dreamcatcher)
A dowel and a branch
Long piece of driftwood (you can find these at your local bead, craft or dollar store)
What’s Included In The Macrame DIY Kit?
The Macramé DIY Kit comes with tutorials to create five different macramé patterns to help you get started on your macrame journey;
Lyric Single Macramé Plant Hanger Pattern
Lyric Double Macramé Plant Hanger Pattern
Triple Artemis Macramé Wall Hanging
Beauregard Macramé Wall Hanging
Kalyx Macramé Dreamcatcher
To be honest, they are somewhat technical, and you will need some knowledge of knot making, but the creator was considerate enough to include a beginner’s handbook to knot making and macramé techniques. I found the handbook quite helpful when I needed clarification or just to see examples.
The tutorials themselves are done in easy to understand and simple English. They are also rich with pictures and illustrations that will guide you every step of the way, so it really doesn’t matter if you previously knew nothing of macramé.
Decorating With The Macrame DIY Kit
The Macramé DIT Kit simplifies the whole process. Whether you were looking to decorate your home, to hang some flower pots or for the perfect gift for friends and family, the Macramé DIY Kit will help you make it.
You can set them up on your porch, and they will look absolutely stunning or hang them in your home to give it a unique feel, and your visitors are bound to notice them. Instead of the standard white cord, you can mix up a few other colors to add your special touch.
Try out different widths of cord to give them a different texture. Thinner cords can be used for the wall pieces like the dream catcher while heavier cords can be used for the plant hanger patterns. Either way, just have as much fun as you can, I encourage you to enjoy every moment of it.
