There is a handy diagram in the printable instructions at the bottom of the post that shows you how to tie your knots. We used clothesline with a 7/32″ diameter, but you can choose different weights for your chair hangings. The thickness of the rope will change the look of the macrame. When you are adding the copper wire pieces, there is no need to secure them with glue – you should be able to simply bend the wire around the ropes. We added our macrame chair decor to copper stools we found from Anthropologie, but this will work best with a chair that has posts. That way you can just tie the hanging to the posts.
We added ranunculus, peonies, gardenias and eucalyptus branches to our wedding chair decor for a lovely wedding color palette.

How is it secured to the chair?
We used fishing line to tie it around the ends of the chair.
What color crepe paper is the peony in this example? Coral? I’m wanting to buy something that is light peach like this and not sure if I should order the coral or blush. Thank you!
Yes, it’s Coral. Here’s another project that may give you a good idea of color: https://liagriffith.com/paper-flower-crown/. The larger blooms are Coral, the smaller light pink are in Blush.
