With Etsy trending and home made crafty home goods on the upswing of the design trends, macrame has made it's reappearance. It's fun, home made, vintage, chic, and modern at the same time! You can search Pinterest and there are so many ways to use it and ideas for your home and fashion.
I myself am working on my kitchen garden and backyard landscape and was inspired to make a hanging plant net. (top left image)
bought some Terra Cotta pots, and made it into a craft to do with my toddler girls - who love to craft just like mama. We painted the pots and then I knit my hanging plant net - see tutorial at the bottom of this page.
Now see some ideas of how to use macrame in your home!
1. Accent Chairs
The textures and patterns are a great way to get color and pattern mixed into your rooms design by. It's just another fun modern element that can uplift any space!
Inquire for references where you can find some.
2. Hammock Chair
This chair is very clever and modern with a touch of vintage. That juxtaposition adds depth and interest in the design. If everything is matching modern it looks cold and uninteresting. Search this on Pinterest to DIY if you like.
Such a great way to get color and texture in room as well! These would be decorative curtains and would advise not tot expect them to function as solar or privacy shades, but over those they would be a great finishing touch! This certainly adds more of the unique touch so would not fit in Have a professional hang your hardware
Better yet I can help you shop and design your treatment. It' s one of my specialties.- wink wink
4. Swing chair
One of my favorite memories in my childhood is napping on my aunts hammock. This just above and beyond a traditional hammock. It looks like sheer bliss. A cup of iced tea and a good novel swinging in this chair would be sheer bliss. (peace and quiet in my life stage, with two toddlers, sounds like sheer bliss anywhere- haha)
5 Plant Terrarium holder
Hurray for plant terrariums! Succulents are gorgeous,easy to keep, drought resistant, and economical. What is there to not like about them? You could of course plant any plant you prefer suitable for a terrarium.
A knit macrame hanging net cradles it nicely adding texture and function to your space.
6. Fruit bags
I can just image taking a macrame bag to the farmers market and packing all y fruits and veggies in it and thn hangina it at home. in my kitchen. rady for me to grab and eat or cook. I love the ombre tie dye effect tothe bags.
Love this idea!
How about you?
7. Hanging plants
This is where I got my inspiration for my outdoor hanging planters.
There are so many different knots in macrame and designs ou uld do. Hanging at different lengths like this creates rhythm and intersest. Kindof like hanging music notes, bouncing your eyes up and down. This is waht design is about. Variety, interst, and function.
the scarfs hanging velow are a vrilliant way of adding more color.
Love love love.
8. Kitchen container
Are you short on counter space like me? I love this idea of hanging a container for utensils! The double diamond is a very need knot. This is a very neat idea!
How I made my hanging pot macrame
i bought yarn for another project and then didn't use it so I re-purposed it for this craft. However it was rather thin and I'm concerned of it's durability, so buy the extra thick yarn.
Cut 8 strands knotted them together at the end and put the knotted end through the bottom hole fo the pot upside down (see below) Don't worry about fixing the strands to the bottom of the pot, once all the knots are made it pulls evenly and fixing it is not necessary.
Then divide the yarns into four making an "x" formation on bottom of pot, so there are two threads together at each extension.
Knot the two threads together at the base level.
Then take 1 strand from each knot and join them and knot lining them up with the first knot. (see below) repeat all around)
And repeat again. until you've reached the top of the pot.
And it's done and simple as that! knot all strands at the desired height you want it hanging and pot your plant and hang.
