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 ones look as good as the complicated ones 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.
