The easiest way to make macrame wall hangings, plant hangers, and other projects is from an adjustable clothes rack
. Being able to adjust the height reduces strain and makes it easy to tie knots for hours. I like to use S-hooks
to hold the driftwood, dowel or ring that I'm working from.
For smaller projects like keychains, coasters or earrings, I love to use a clipboard
. Getting one with measurements on the side makes it easy to measure small amounts of cord or when trimming fringe.
If you plan on brushing out your cord to create fringe, you'll need a brush
and a comb
. I like to use a grooming brush
for larger projects like tassels on wall hangings. I like to use a comb
for smaller projects like earrings.
I love having a large notebook
with grids for sketching my designs prior to knotting. It helps to keep track of measurements and any notes you want to leave yourself for future projects.
