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 18 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. This created 36 strands on my 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.
