DIY Macrame Wreath

 

Holiday Wreath

What You'll Need: 

Step 1:

Measure a piece of string the length you'd like the hanging to be, and double it (approximately 12in. long). Loop the string under the smallest ring and pull the ends through the loop (this is called a Lark’s Head Knot).

Step 2:

Tie each end of your string to the ends of your wooden dowel. Secure the knots with hot glue.

Step 3:

Estimate where you want your larger ring to hang in the middle and measure out another piece of string (doubled). Do another Lark’s Head Knot on the bigger ring with your newly measured string.

Step 4:

Tie a knot with the ends of your loose string.

Step 5:

Take your knotted string that is attached to your larger ring, and pull through your first Lark’s Head Knot.

Step 6:

Pull your larger ring through the space in-between your two ends and tighten.

Step 7:

Take the yarn and loop around your elbow 8 times to create a circle. Cut the yarn. Then, cut all the looped ends so it becomes 8 long strands.

Step 8:

Make another Lark’s Head Knot using string from your bundle and tighten. Do this until the wooden dowel is full. Trim the ends so they are in a slight ‘V’ shape.

Step 9:

Glue the greenery around the base of your larger ring.

Step 10:

Lastly, add florals and accents to the greenery.  Start with larger florals first (cotton, garden roses) and then fill in with filler (feathers, berries,etc). Lay out your stems first to create a pattern you like and then secure them to the ring with hot glue.

Perfect for the holidays, this will make a gorgeous door wreath or wall hanging.  Choose flowers that match your home decor for a room accent you can keep up all year!
