Incredible DIY Macrame Projects & Inspired Ideas

I am seeing Macrame Projects make a huge comeback from when I was a child. It the new Boho Chic in home decore. Even so, with this not being a new technique, I am seeing macrame being crafted into all sorts of uses. So many in fact it almost becomes overwhelming on where you would even know where to start! You may find it suprises all the ways it can be used.

Take a look here at some simple DIY Macrame inspired ideas I’ve been coming across.

For starters I’m seeing these feathers EVERYWHERE and I can see why.

Here are some ways these are being incorporated as design elements for home decore.

This particular one below can be purchased here.

Here they are being used to accessorize a purse but you can see can be added to many different elements for fun in this post found here.

One that I really like seeing are the smaller ones as I see them perfect as planner charms or even earrings.

Here is getting out of just the feather look and taking basic Macrame in other uses such as jewelry which I LOVE!
