It’s time to decorate the house for the winter season, but don’t just use shop bought decorations – make some yourself! Why not have a few macrame snowflakes or stars dotted around the place for that natural wintertime vibe. Check out these tutorials below for some festive inspiration.
Let’s start off with this Christmas tree ornament from Soulful Notions. It only requires you to use one type of knot, so this would be the perfect starter piece.
If you want to try a design that allows you to increase the difficulty with each option, then try out these lovely ring ornaments from Rox Shana.
Or, if you want to practice something with more steps and using more skills, then her Christmas angel could be perfect for you. The final piece looks stunning!
Another design aimed at beginners are these snowflakes from the Macrame School. They involve only using cotton or twine, so no wooden beads or rings necessary.
These ringless shooting stars from Soulful Notions are beautiful, with the lengths of cotton left trailing behind. Once they’re hanging up, you could even make your Christmas wishes on them…
If you’re not looking for anything specifically themed, then this Cinnamon Stick Hanging Ornament from Marching North would be a great one to try. Not only does it look pretty, but it smells festive too.
Eco-friendly and beautiful – you’ll want your macrame decorations hanging in your house all year round.
