We are getting creative with wool roving this October! After adding some to our macrame wall hanging, Meagan decided to make an entire wreath out of it. This is the first time we have made a macrame wool wreath, and we think it is pretty fabulous! Also, if you saw our October inspiration video, we had some fun thinking about what else we could use this wreath for (lion costume, anyone?).
This is an easy project that will add so much warmth and coziness to any room you put it in. To learn how to make your own version, just follow our tutorial below.
Wool you make this?
This wool roving is such a beautiful autumn color. We chose it to give our macrame wool wreath more of a seasonal look. Plus it matches our fall color palette perfectly! But you can also make this wreath in any color that matches your home decor and keep it up year-round.
The macrame techniques you will need to know for this project are how to make a larks head knot, square knot, and an alternating pattern using square knots. For those of you familiar with these knots, just follow our step-by-step photo tutorial below. Or you can always practice your macrame knots or learn how to do them first by watching our video course on how to make 15 common macrame knots.

How many 4 oz skeins of roving are needed for this project?
It looks like Meagan suggested 4 ounces so depending on how many oz per skein, you can be sure to get 4 oz.
Could you make this with a wring that is bigger than 6″? If so, would 12″ be too big? I am looking for something to put over my mantle.
I think larger would look amazing! Just make your strands longer so it stays in proportion and you might need double strands to fill up the wreath. Share pics when you are done!
