As you know, we love to design macrame wall hangings and have made quite a few over the years. But today we are getting extra creative with it! This dip dye wall hanging is an easy craft project and would be a fun one for kids to make too.
To help you make this wall hanging, we have created a video tutorial for you to follow below.
Dip Dye DIY
All you need for your dip dye wall hanging is a few simple supplies, which we have linked to below. Because of our tropical theme for this month’s craft collection, we decided to use a coral dye. The brand of dye we used has over 30 colors to choose from, though, so of course you can choose whatever color you like best. Or maybe you want to try more than one color!
Another fun idea would be to paint your wooden beads (or you can leave them like we did). We hope you will share how you got creative with your dip dye wall hanging! Once you watch our video, you could also use this dip dye technique for other macrame hangings.
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tip: We used a horizontal half hitch knot and larks head knot to make our dip dye wall hanging. If you need a refresher on these knots, make sure to check our our mini course: 15 Macrame Knots for Beginners. For the dying process, follow the instructions provided on the back of the dye bottle. We did not use a dye fixative since the hanging will not be worn or washed after dyed.
