6 Macrame Lawn Chair Ideas

Nov 7, 2022 | Home Decor Crafts, Macrame, Video tutorials

By following a macrame lawn chair tutorial, you can take that ugly chair and transform it into something beautiful. New lawn chairs can be expensive. And let’s admit, they are usually very ugly. If you have an old lawn chair that you are planning on tossing in the trash, do not get rid of it. Instead, give it a makeover.



Below, I have included 6 macrame lawn chair tutorials. There are a variety of DIY macrame patterns to choose from.

1. Macrame Lawn Chair Pattern by DavidandCharles

Do you have an old deck chair that has seen better days? Do not throw it out. Take the old chair and turn it into a beautiful, relaxing macrame lawn chair. I love the simplistic design created with this pattern.

To make the chair, simply remove the existing fabric. Then follow the pattern to create your own boho chic chair.
