We love to make our own wall decor that we can switch up whenever we want to, depending on the season, a special occasion, or just because. A macrame wall hanging is a great way to make any room feel more inviting, plus you can easily add your own creative touch to it. We typically make our wall hangings in a neutral color, but for this project, Meagan added a bit of lavender around the wooden beads.

Lavender is such a pretty color to use throughout the year, and it’s perfect if you want to keep that soft and serene look that macrame hangings usually have. Of course, you can always liven it up with a bolder color if you want to! 

DIY macrame wall hanging with wooden beads

Wood you like to macrame?

Due to the addition of wooden beads and the variation of knots, we would say this macrame wall hanging is more of an intermediate macrame project. Depending on your level of experience with macrame, it will take about three hours to make. Remember you can always work on it a little bit at a time! This is one of the things we love about macrame projects — they allow us to slow down and be in the moment while we create something beautiful.

To get started, just gather the tools and materials listed below, then download our instructions and photo tutorial at the end of the post. This is the first time we have made a macrame wall hanging using a button knot and a vertical half hitch, so make sure to check the instructions PDF for graphics on how to tie these knots. Next month we will have a video for you on how to make different macrame knots, so be sure to let us know if you have any questions in the meantime.
