Since this month’s collection is all about winter citrus, we had to get a little creative with how we would work that into a macrame project. Inspired by a grapefruit slice, Meagan designed this citrus macrame wall hanging that’s about 12″ wide by 12″ long. 

Due to the variety of intricate knots, this wall hanging is an intermediate project. So if you’re more of a beginner, you may want to check out our beginner macrame crafts instead! 

A beautiful DIY craft, no matter how you slice it

We love the detailed, intricate top part of this citrus macrame wall hanging combined with the simple and soft cords hanging below the citrus slice. To get this look, you can use a wire brush to brush out your cords if you’d like. 

While our pink macrame cord is perfect for making a grapefruit slice, you can also use green macrame cord to make a lime slice, yellow for a lemon slice, or orange for an orange slice. We’d love to see your version of this project, so be sure to share photos with us on our Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
