Materials Needed for Macraweave Wall Hanging
The dimensions of the finished piece shown in the tutorial are 12” wide x 23” long. For this project, you’ll need the following supplies:
- One 12“ long dowel ¾” in diameter
- Two 12” dowels ¼” in diameter
- 15 pieces of 3mm natural single-strand Macrame cords – about 5 feet long
You will need about 3 feet more to use as leads for your waves. And even more, if you plan to use some of the natural colors for the weaving parts
- 5 to 7 colors of 4mm or 3 mm colorful cords
Sasha offers the same colorful 4 mm color cords 100 feet spools in her Etsy shop, which is more than enough for this project.
- Wool or vegan/synthetic rowing to go with your color cord.
You can use bulky handspun art yarn or you can even experiment with velvet, silk, or cotton ribbons to create more interesting textures.
We hope this educational tutorial will spark some ideas in you so that you can now design some of your own elements and wall hangings.
