Learning How to Macramé

I think that sometimes the hardest part of crafting is gathering the supplies. I swear I always forget something and each project requires at least two trips to the store. So when I was introduced to the idea of all-in-one crafting kits, I was definitely intrigued.

If you look at my craft board on Pinterest, you’ll notice that I’ve been pinning macramé projects for months. So it should be no surprise that one of the kits that I picked was a macramé kit. Modern Macramé includes step-by-step instructions, knot tying techniques, and all the supplies needed to create a mini plant hanger and mini wall hanging.



The mini plant hanger was super simple and quick to make. I love how it turned out! I can’t wait to make another using different color string and knot tying techniques. I feel like there are so many options for this kind of project. I just used a pot that I had in the shed, but I think it would look so great painted a fun color or some kind of pattern. Maybe I’ll work on that this weekend!



When I told my mom that I was learning how to macramé, she told me about taking a macramé class with my grandma in the 1970s. I don’t know why I find that so entertaining, but I love picturing my mom and grandma in a macramé class together. It’s true that everything comes back in style!



I also received Embroidery Designs: Modern Monogram. As the title suggests, this kit includes a step-by-step instructions, embroidery techniques/stitches, twelve patterns and a selection of lettering, plus all of the supplies needed to create your first embroidery project. I haven’t started this project yet, but I think it’ll be a great way to unwind at night while Adam watches basketball.



Both kits are available on Amazon and are currently under $20! Christmas is coming up (wait, what?!) and these kits would make great gifts for all ages and skill levels.

  1. Is this coming back into style. I did this as a kid back in the late 60's early 70's. Yes I am old I realize that. First thing I made was a holder for plants.

  4. What a great idea! I agree, sometimes it seems daunting (and pricey!) to gather the initial supplies. Love the way your pot hanger turned out!

    1. Daunting is such a good way to describe it...although it usually ends up not being a bid deal (except for the extra trips for forgotten supplies)!

    1. Yes! I'm seen some amazing macramé pieces lately! This project is definitely a baby step, but I'm going to try the small wall hanging next!
