Remember in my last post when I said I had bought an embarrassing amount of rope? Well, it’s because of the macrame kick I’ve been on the past few months. After seeing all the amazing macrame artists on social media , I was so inspired to learn the craft. I thought I’d shared one of the first projects I ever learned to make that is both functional and beautiful.
*If you are still having trouble with the knots shown, I’ll include links to videos at the end of the tutorial.*
I’ve recently gotten into macrame and have bought more rope than I’d care to admit. Seriously, I have an entire spool of rope sitting on my floor as we speak. I’ve made a few wall hangings but wanted inspiration for different projects.
The best thing about rope is that it’s so versatile, and thankfully for me, relatively inexpensive. Whether you are making home decor or jewelry, it always adds a minimal and natural look to your project. I rounded-up some DIY projects to help me use up some of my remaining rope, and because they’re just so clever.
My plans for this weekend are the same as every weekend…a whole lot of nothing. I’m so excited to watch season 2 of ‘Love’ on Netflix which I’ll try to space out over the weekend, but will honestly end up watching it in one sitting. I’ve recently got back into working on the blog, so stay tuned for some new projects next week! In the meantime, here are 7 DIYS you can try this weekend.
Do you have something you’ve been meaning to try for years? I have literally dozens of things I’ve wanted to do, and arm knitting falls at the very top of the list. I got into crochet and knitting as a kid (yes, I was super cool) but I felt it always took forever to make something and I didn’t have the best attention span. I probably had at least 3 unfinished blankets scattered around my room at any one time. That’s why I was so intrigued by arm knitting using chunky merino wool. You mean I can make an insanely gorgeous blanket in a matter of hours? Yes, please!
I can’t believe it’s already February. FEBRUARY! I feel like Christmas was just last week but here we are, already celebrating the holiday of love. Is it just me, or is 2017 flying by already? I was lucky enough to start the year with a trip to San Francisco and I absolutely fell in love with the city. I can’t wait to see where the rest of the year takes me!
I’m not gonna lie…I’m not really into Valentine’s Day. It’s cheesy and lonely if you’re, you know, alone. BUT, I do love chocolate and candy. I also love discounted chocolate and candy the day after Valentine’s Day. If you are into Valentine’s Day, or better yet Galentine’s Day, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite, non-cheesy projects to celebrate the day.
