Macrame at Home is the easy way for anyone to add an earthy, boho vibe to their homes with 20 gorgeous decor projects, including a variety of wall hangings, unique plant hangers, a rug, hanging light, pillow, floor pouf and more. An ancient fiber art, macrame utilizes knots and cotton rope in intricate patterns. Many people remember macrame's widespread popularity in the 70s, and with the "back to nature" movement, it's made a modern-day comeback among young people. Cotton-corded macrame planters and wall hangings can be found in Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, West Elm and Etsy shops. Now you can make you own decor at the same quality level as these high-end retailers but with a unique artisanal flair, thanks to Natalie Ranae's stunning creations shared in this book.
With beginner-friendly step-by-step projects and a helpful guide to common macrame knots, anyone can pick up this craft and get impressive results from their first project. A huge appeal of macrame is how easy it is to get a variety of different looks with a few basic techniques, so each of the 20 impressive designs features a variation at the end, giving readers endless inspiration to adapt the projects in new ways. Readers will be amazed at how easy it is to create stunning works of art that add a special touch to their home decor. This book has 40 macrame designs, including 20 illustrated step-by-step tutorials each with a variation option.
