Not is all it seems with this diy project. This gorgeous wall hanging is not actually woven at all, but instead done with a glue gun.

Find yourself a piece of rug, yarn for tassels, and felt balls for the basics and then with the additions of a wooden rod and a glue gun, you are good to go.

They say;

We’re carrying on our love affair with macramé. It’s a great way to make a wall hanging – and it’s way quicker than weaving, knitting or quilting. If you’ve been putting off taking up a new skill because you’re busy, this might be the one for you. Plus you’ll have the skills you need to make all sorts of plant holders, wall hangings, jewellery and more. Macrame is super versatile and looks good in everything from kitchen string to leather cord, so what are you waiting for? Now’s the time to pick up the skill and get creative with it!

We’ll be using recycled jersey yarn created by our favourites over at Hoooked – we love their bright colours and sustainable manufacturing. Choose from pink, yellow, white or black. We’ll also supply a foraged rustic stick to hang your work from that’s been washed and heat-treated so its clean and dry!

What’s included:

– jersey yarn recycled by Hoooked

– a foraged stick to hang your macrame piece from

– a cotton tote to bring your handiwork home in

– fully illustrated instruction sheet to take away with you

Who’s it for: This is perfect for beginners. You must be over 18 to take part
