Welcome to the Inaugural edition of “Technique Tuesday” where I will share a new technique every other Tuesday of the month. It will be either crochet or macrame related how to technique. With my over 8 years of macrame creating (cant believe it’s been so long), I have a well of techniques I have had to use to create everything from wall hangings to wearable items. And of course, I want to share them with you!
It will mostly be a few minutes snippet from video I have recorded that isnt ready for YouTube full lengrh. Most of the time it will be something I have created and sold, but sometimes, I’ll pick something out to explain “how did they do that”. Keeping things fresh and regular on here is a goal, and this will hopefully make both goals attainable.
With all of that being said, here is a clip of how to “macraweave” which I used to make a macrame 🪴 air plant 🌱 holster that easily hangs on any wall.
👋🏾Hi makers! Boy, I’ve been MIA for a couple months now and for that I am sorry. Life has just been sooo busy. And I just needed to recharge my Maker’s brain. Surely you can relate. It’s back in full force!
My post “5 Fantastic Uses for Macrame Scraps” is my most popular post and so why not give readers more of what they want? So, I deep dove into my creations from IG and from my archives to bring you 5 more uses for scraps. Sustainable and useful, I hope one or more ideas below ignite your creative fire 🔥 as we will be at home in the US a lot for the next month or so.
Lighting is everything in the winter, imo. It can set a nice cozy mood or bring us out of the doldrums of impenetrable winter. So…Macrame Candle Jars.
Just add mini tea light candles or for more safety, use the led ones.
Next up, ‘tis the season for Macrame Ornaments.
How about those ornaments? Such a quick project with lovely results. You can even make mini tassels or a macrame garland for a boho tree. I’m working on my tree now so I’ll show ya the vibe. 👍🏾
Next up, how about some MacrameWall Baskets of macrame scraps or just non scraps. Depends on how long you want the decor to be. Here are a couple that I have fashioned out of thrifted wicker baskets.
🌸Just add flowers 🌸
How about an accessory for the Holiday Season?! A Tassel Choker. This tassel takes like 10 minutes to make. You have to add the silver findings. Or it can be a keychain.
And last, but not least, Boho Macrame Plant Pot. This is basically half hitch knotted over and over again in a spiral form. This took me like an hour. There is a wooden ring at the base on which I mounted the scraps of rope.
The scraps have to be on the longer side. You do need one long piece of rope to add the individual scraps on in order to have it keep it’s round form. I am working on writing up the pattern and how to video to show you soon so stay tuned.
So, there ya have it. 5 more uses for macrame scraps. What will you make?
