DIY Macrame Chair Hanging

 

Hey there, it’s Melissa here from The Sweet Escape with an extra sweet DIY project for you. Me and a bunch of creative folks recently created a beautiful dinner with Kendall-Jackson and it includes a DIY project that was too good not to share.

The concept was a dinner party at dusk in the countryside. We wanted to keep things fairly simple and casual but I couldn't resist adding a pop of color and a crafty touch with these pretty macrame chair hangings. #DIY

With a few fresh flower accents, these added such a pretty handmade touch to the whole setting. Because I wanted to keep things fairly casual and not too prim and proper I decided to use jersey and make my own string for the macrame. I just cut 1″ strips of jersey fabric and gave it a good tug to make the edges roll up. You can most definitely use another type of string or cord like I did for the tutorial below.

You don’t need much to create this piece, it’s more about the technique. What you’ll need for something similar to the one above is 3 meters of string for each row. This simple and pattern uses 8 rows. As you can see, it’s a fairly basic design with minimal rows, a large pattern and fairly simple knots. Here’s the step-by-step (with a different type of string) to show you how to make this basic macrame piece.

It’s easier to work using a dowel or something similar then just slide it out when you’re done and slide through another piece of string to make it possible to hang on a chair. I promise you that once you do a few you will get really quick and it will take no time. I made both of the yellow ones in about 1 hour. Then finish the look off with some beautiful fresh flowers and you have a stunning accent piece for your chair.

If you’re really ambitious you can do this for all the chairs at your next dinner party or just highlight a few like I did here. It would also be great to celebrate a bride-to-be at her shower or both the bride & groom on their wedding day. There’s nothing as unique and than a handmade touch to make any event a little extra special.
