Have you ever tried macrame? It’s SO fun! This Anthropologie inspired macrame table runner that I used in my Fall tablescape this year was my first project, and I’m officially hooked. Want to try? Let me show you how to make it!
When I saw this table runner, I knew that I wanted to try my had at a similar DIY version. I picked up some inexpensive poly/cotton clothesline from the home improvement store, watched a video on basic macrame knots and got to work!
This project DOES take a very long time to make, but once you nail down the basic macrame knots, it’s quite easy and relaxing.
First, I recommend watching this video and practicing basic macrame knots:
Now, you’re ready to begin!
I used 9 strands of clothesline that were about 36 feet long each for my 6 ft long runner, and then I folded them in half as I attached them via a lark head knot to my curtain rod. The length of the strands will be dependent on how long you want your runner, but cutting them about 6 times the finished length of your piece seems about right.
