New to macrame? You’re in luck. These beginner macrame projects are perfect if you’re just starting out. A lot of these are small or mini versions so they are not as intimidating. Complete them in a weekend!

To make it even easier, be sure to check out my post on Basic Macrame knots and download your free handy macrame knot pdf. It’s easy to see why macrame is such a popular DIY project.   Bringing macrame into your decor invites that chic, bohemian vibe into our homes. 

Macrame pieces are not only crafts, but they are also artwork.  Those intricate knots can be mesmerizing!

There are so many uses for macrame too (plant hangers, fruit and veggie holders, decorative wall hangings, and even jewelry!)  And you don’t have to make it complicated either.  The simple projects look as good as the complicated projects if you ask me.

Amazon sells the materials needed for most of these macrame projects.  Just go to Amazon and search “macrame cord” and “macrame rings” and a bunch of good options comes up.

Actually – you can buy finished pieces of macrame too, but where’s the fun in that!?
