Do you love the look of macramé? This art form has become really popular over the last few years—and we’re loving it. There’s something so appealing about its soft look and neutral hues. It’s also very versatile! You can use this technique to make so many different macramé projects. And it’s fun to think of how you can incorporate it into everyday objects. Our designer Meagan has been getting creative with macrame lately. She recently made a mini macramé wall hanging. And today we’re sharing how she made this macramé magazine holder.

We love having a place for everything—even magazines! When you think of magazine holders, though, you don’t really think of their aesthetics. So, of course, we needed to make something more stunning. We combined the soft look of macramé with a sturdy gold hoop to make a macramé magazine holder that’s both functional and fashionable. You could also use it to hold books and notebooks.

One great thing about macramé is that if you make a mistake, you can just undo your knots and start again. We’ll show you how easy it is—step by step. You can follow our photo tutorial or download the instructions below to make your own macramé magazine holder.
