Well I’ve been sitting here trying to make some sort of macrame project, but I am so weirdly intimidated by it. There is a blank space on this wall in our house and I wanted to add something light and colorful. I received some items from We Make Collective a few months back to create something and I finally put it to good use. This little hanging wall art was super easy.

MATERIALS

Dowel
Rope
Paint
Tape

 

STEPS

01. Cut the rope into sections, about 24″ long and loop them on the dowel.
02. Use the tape as guidelines to trim the bottom and cut at an angle.
03. Mix the paint with water so it can be applied to the rope easier.
04. Paint the rope in a downward position, kind of just in a going-for-it way!
05. Before the first color dries, paint another color above it, blending slightly.
06. If you’re rope starts to fray, use little elmer’s glue to twist.

It’s a perfect little accent on my wall, plus it was almost too easy to make, haha. :)

    Love it! Are the gold pieces just beads? What type of paint did you use?

    Hi Lauren!

    I just used gold beads, I’m pretty sure you can find them at Michaels! I also used some old acrylic paint and watered it down quite a bit!

    Hi Ali, I have no clue! But it wasn’t much bugger than a quarter of an inch!
