DIY Macramé Wall Hanging

Materials:
Birch Branch
Cotton Rope (approximately 2 bundles)
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Artificial Flowers (assorted colors and styles)

Step 1: Start with knotting the rope. Space each knot about 3-4″ away from one another. Add an uneven number of knots, each with two strands of rope hanging from it. Tie a knot at the base of each loop.

Step 2: Leave about 3-4″ from the base knots to the first row. Tie a knot, starting with the 2nd and 3rd strands of rope.  Continue this process down the branch to the end of the first row. 

Step 3: Repeat this process, starting with the first and second strand of rope and working to the end of the branch, creating a row of diamond shapes.  Continue doing this until you have 3-4 rows of knots.

Step 4: Cut the stems of the faux flowers so there is only about 1/2″ of stem left.

Step 5: Begin hot glueing the flowers to the top branch for a few bolder accents, then let the flowers trickle down the rest of the hanging ropes.  When you are ready to add flowers below the knots you just made, add hot glue to the flower stem and tie a knot around the stem of the flower to secure. Repeat until you like the way it looks!

You have now made a floral macramé wall hanging!  Perfect for a wedding ceremony backdrop or behind the cake table.  When you use faux flowers you can use this wall hanging to decorate your home after the event!
