I don't know if you have noticed, but macrame has become super trendy lately.
I've been seeing it pop up in interiors more and more.
For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, macrame is a technique of trying knots to create art. You will mostly see it used for plant hangers and wall hangings.
I think it is super cool! And so I wanted to try it out for myself.
I decided to make a macrame bead curtain. This is a great project for beginners like me.
Here is how it turned out:
I used yarn for my curtain because basically it was all I had on hand.
I also added wood beads, not only because I like the look of it, but also to give it some weight to allow the yarn to hang better.
I followed this tutorial video to make my curtain. I started with 16 long pieces of yarn.
I tied them to the curtain rod that is in the doorway leading into our sunroom.
I choose to go with the diamond pattern shown in the video.
I added the beads in between two knots, to create a symmetrical row.
I then randomly added beads at different lengths, as well as at the ends of the yarn.
It was actually super simple to make, but it did take some time to do.
I think it adds to the bohemian vibe that I have going on in this room.
So if you like the look of macrame, I'd suggest giving this project a try. It was incredibly fun to make, and I think it looks cool. I see more macrame in my future.
Have a great day!
