I’m really loving the mini versions of macrame lately.
They can be made with less cord and take way less time than a giant piece of macrame.
But don’t worry folks, these mini versions look just as cool as the large versions.
I whipped up these three mini macrame wall hangings yesterday with a variety of easy, basic macrame knots.

Just like these projects below …
I only used Lark’s Head, Square Knots, and Double Half Hitch knots to make these.
All you’re gonna need is a small ring or dowel. Some cording, and your creativity.
Here’s what you Need
- Wood Rings or a Small Dowel
- Macrame Cording
- Wire Brush (for the fringe)
DIY Mini Macrame Wall Hanging Tutorial
I made a few different versions of mini wall hangings. I guess my creativity swept my away! But I used the same length of cording for all of them – 4 feet.
The only difference was the number of cords I used for each project. For the mini wall hanging with the diamond pattern, I used a total of 7 cords.
The more cords you use, the wider your project will be. So it all depends on what look you’re going for.
To Make the Diamond Pattern
- Cut 7 pieces of 4-foot long cording.
- Attach the cords to the ring using simple Lark’s Head knots.
- Starting from the two very center cords, create a series of diagonal half hitch knots (see helpful video below). One going to the left side, and the other to the right side.
- Repeat step 3 again to create another row of double half hitch knots.
- Now, create a series of diagonal half hitch knots from where you left off, but this time going towards the center.
- Repeat to create another row of these knots.
- Finish your mini macrame wall hanging by slightly fringing the hanging cords with your wire brush.
- Cut the fringe cords evenly to neaten up the bottom.
To Make the Square Knot Pattern
- Cut 4-6 pieces of 4-foot long cording.
- Create a series of alternating square knots.
- You can create as many rows as you like.
- Finish your piece by creating a fringe with your wire brush. You can also finish your piece by creating a row of half hitch knots.
And that’s it!
Of course, these are just ideas to get you started. I highly recommend you come up with your pattern. Use Etsy for inspiration.
I have this mini macrame wall hanging in my office on my linen bulletin board (yes, my daughter said I could have it). But, I thought it might be neat to make a trio and hang them all together.
On a more thoughtful note, this was just the thing I needed to take my mind off the world for a little bit. Which is why I love macrame and crafting so much. It occupies your mind!
Hang in there, my friends,
