Macrame is an easy addition that will give any room a light and airy feel. Thanks to its soft colours and delicate knots, it will add a touch of sophistication to any space. There are many ways to incorporate macrame into your decor, from small additions like plant hangers to larges pieces like hanging chairs.


We’ve found a mixture of both premade and DIY macrame ideas for you to browse which will help to inspire your next macrame project or purchase!

Not sure whether to go pre-made or DIY? Buying ready-made macrame can be the best option if you are looking for a large item. A hanging chair, for example, is something that purchasing ready-made will ensure it’s not going to collapse or fall down when in use.

If you are more of a hands-on macrame fan, smaller decorative items like wall hangings and bunting can be fun to make yourself. They are a great way to create low-cost, yet stylish items easily (and they make great gifts too).
