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. Or you can always check out our mini course on macrame knots for step-by-step video tutorials.
