I usually create modern, geometric designs, but this time I wanted to get carried away with creation process … I wanted to create bohemian macrame wall hanging.
As you know in the boho style ‘less is less and more is more’. I did not plan, I did not design. I knew that I wanted a large wall hangings, very decorative, even overloaded with details. And these are my macrame wall hangings – very detailed.
The creation process was extraordinary. I did not have to control myself when it comes to form and details. I let my heart to take control of me. I freed my gypsy spirit. I began to feel free. Beautiful experience.
Paradoxically, these types of macrame wall hanging are not my style. They hang pretty on the wall and I love to look at them, but they do not match my home’s decor. If you interested to give them new home, check my Etsy shop (shop will be reopen end of January).
I will definitely make this type of macrame again – just because process is really enjoyable.
What is beautiful about macrame – there are limited number of knot types but the combinations are infinite!
October passed so quickly. I came back from Poland. I reopen my Etsy shop . I had to reorganized our London flat again – my 14 months son is curious fast-moving toddler. He demands lots of attention. I was really busy, yet I found some time for knitting and macrame. Mornings, during my child’s nap and evenings, when Max is already in bed is the only time when I can craft. I wish evenings are longer.
In October I was also working on some Christmas decorations. I made few macrame Christmas trees. They are really cute. Easy to knot. Some of them I decorate with beads. They perfect as a little Christmas gift. They will look lovely on Christmas tree or in the window as a Christmas decoration.
Last year my house was decorated with crocheted snowflakes, this year I will add some macrame Christmas trees.

I also made set of crochet Christmas stocking. I bought “The Winter Crochet Book” magazine with many lovely winter patterns. I have to say crocheting that tiny items is not my thing. But I like the result.
Macramé, hippie art form popular in 1970s, is trendy again.
Modern macramé wall hangings, plant hangers, macrame bags, jewelry or macrame candle holders are stylish and chic. Macramé is back in home décor and in fashion.
Macramé, like crocheting or knitting, can be meditativeand very relaxing, reduces stress and anxiety. The rhythmic motion of tying knots brings many people in relaxed and peaceful state of mind. The process of learning new knots helps them feel good about themselves . Creating macrame brings a lot of satisfaction.
Take a look at my macrame wall hangings and candle holder. I never copy macrame designs. My handwork is unique and 100% designed by me. You can buy some of my work here.
I’m going to write tutorial how to make macramé candle holder (hurricane macrame) – similar to this one on first photo. Post will be public on my blog and my webside soon. Please stay in touch!
