Macrame Chair DecorTying the Knot in Style

If you are planning a DIY wedding with a Boho style, you have probably found lots of macrame projects during your search for wedding decor. Here is our take on gorgeous macrame chair decor, perfect for memorable and unique DIY wedding chairs. Once you are done tying the weavings, you can customize them with your favorite paper flowers or botanicals that mirror your bridal bouquet for a cohesive look.

Tools & Materials


  1. Gather tools and materials.
  2. Cut twelve 7-foot ropes and one 4-foot rope.
  3. Take two of your 7′ ropes, hold them together evenly and fold them in half. Take the halved end of your ropes and fold it over the 4′ rope, then thread the ends through the loop.
  4. Repeat step 3 five more times, spacing the knots about 2 inches apart.

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.
