Macrame wall hangings make such beautiful home decor that you can use year-round. However, if you want yours to feel a bit more cozy for fall or winter, one simple solution is to add some roving wool like we did with this wool macrame wall hanging.

The addition of wool as well as the more intricate knot patterns make this an intermediate macrame project. So if you need some practice first, make sure to check out our video course on 15 macrame knots for beginners. Otherwise our tutorial will walk you through it!

Hang in there — you’ve got this!

For our wool macrame wall hanging, we used a light gray roving wool from Benzie. Another fun fall color is Benzie’s cinnamon roving wool, which we used last year to make this macrame and woven wool hanging. You can use any color you prefer — we just prefer to use neutral, earthy colors in our macrame wall hangings for a more natural and serene look. 

Along with roving wool, you will need single strand macrame cord, some wooden dowels, and your scissors. And don’t forget, you can always trim the ends to whatever length you like to fit the space where it will hang. Overall this project features four macrame techniques — a larks head knot, square knot, switch knot, and an alternating pattern with square knots.
