DIY Macramé Garland
It’s Take It On Tuesday and did I take something on…
NINE FEET of said yarn swag/garland.
When in Rome!
Go big or go home!
Etc and whathaveyou.
I went with the greens because St. Patty’s Day is at hand and green is an awesome color, so there.
I wandered the yarn aisles at Joann Fabrics until I found the perfect pairings of yarns. Blues and yellows and what does blue and yellow make? GREEN!
This was not my original idea; I was inspired by this post here.
Though this is pretty easy, as far as craft things go… it takes some time. But not advanced skill. Therefore, it was a perfect fit for me.
The first thing you do is cut a long length of yarn (depending on the space your creation will live). I used about 9 feet.
If you choose to bead, add your beads first.
And the pin the length of yarn to the wall.
Cut 2-3 feet strands of your assortment of yarns (mine measured about 3 feet), and lay yarn strands over base strand. In between beads if you chose to use beads.
Then tie strands to base strand. But leave the outer strand alone. For now.
To start the second row, take outer strand and… well… here’s a picture.
And then keep on tying until you have created row 2.
Repeat for row 3.
Once your rows are complete – fuss with spacing and such.
And then trim. If you watch the video, you will see I was neither scientific nor terribly obsessive about the trimming process. I just did it.
You can too.
And voila! A macramé yarn garland.
A macramé yarn swag.
Call it what you will, I think it is fun and adds a little something fun and different to my home décor.
And there are sparkles in it. So it’s almost like having my very own disco ball.
