Have you seen some of the amazing things in stores that are made of knotted rope? My daughter fell in love with quite a few things on our last trip to Target, and I was explaining to her that they were all macrame art ideas, and that she could make them herself at home. Cheap and much easier to make than they look, macrame crafts are one of the things trendy designer furniture stores do not really want you to know about. Save money and get something much more special and creative in the process. Take pride in displaying one of these cool macrame ideas in your home or give one as a super thoughtful DIY gift next Christmas. I promise you are going to want to keep most of these for yourself, though, not give any away. Check out this list if nifty macrame tutorials and see for yourself! From wall hangings and pillows to keychains and ornaments, there are so many fun ideas, I am not sure where to start.
