Learn everything you need to start with Macrame in my NEW Complete Macrame Guide for 2022!

Macrame Supplies – Dowels

To make a Macrame wall hanging, you will need a dowel to attach your cords. This can be a simple wooden branch you found in your garden, a piece of driftwood you brought home from the beach, or a plain wooden stick from a DIY store.

If you have trouble finding a suitable dowel for your Macrame wall hanging, you can easily order them on Etsy. Here are my favorite finds:

Plain wooden dowel
Copper Dowel

Macrame Supplies – Cords

If you’re looking for gorgeous colorful Macrame cords, I recommend Bobbiny. Their eco-friendly and recycled Macrame cords are super fun to work with and will make all your Macrame wall hangings look absolutely stunning.

Bobbiny Cord - Macrame Cords by Bobbiny - Macrame for Beginners

For larger wall hangings, I recommend using 3-Ply cords, but what cords you use for your project also depends on the tutorial you’re following. You can usually find this information in the video description on YouTube.

TIP: If you’re using 3-Ply Macrame rope to create your piece, make sure to tape the ends of the cords to prevent unraveling.

There are plenty of Macrame cord stockists that sell Bobbiny cords in different colors in their online shop. You can check our handy guide for the best local online cord suppliers near you.

Macrame Workstation – Tools

When working on bigger Macrame projects, I recommend setting up a proper Macrame workspace.

When it comes to tools, I recommend getting a good pair of sharp scissors and a tape measure.
