Who knew that I could come up with the easiest project in like 5 minutes.
Today I am sharing a quick tutorial of this fun Driftwood Macrame Christmas Wreath. I bet that ANYONE can do this! Seriously!
I am super excited to be part of this fun blog hop that my friend, Krista, over at The Happy Housie hosts each year. I love to sign up for these blog hops because
#1, I stay inspired and motivated to DIY!
#2, I love browsing all the other crazy fun projects that my other crazy talented blogger friends create for inspiration.
After you are done with my quick tutorial, be sure to hop around and get inspired! So much to see!
So here is the quick story on this wreath…:-)
I was in the belief that this week is a Christmas Ornament hop ( stay tuned! it’s coming up next Tuesday!). I was finishing up my DIY ornament (can’t wait to share it!), and when I logged in to share a teaser picture, I realized that I mixed up the weeks, and this week is actually a Christmas DIY week. Ghaw!
That’s so ME!
I had to come up with something relatively quick and easy that I could DIY with what I had on hands, as I had 20 minutes before I was off to shoot a wedding.
Craaaazy!!:-) Or I just simply call it my life! lol
I walked into my messy garage, and I spotted a bucket of driftwoods that I collected months ago when we walked around at a local river. I found some pieces that were perfect to use to create a TREE shape.
You can see the TREE shape, can’t you?
Then once I formed the tree I thought I’d add some macrame cords…why not! It’s totally my jam:-)
And I have plenty of scrap cords laying around, so it seemed to be a perfect idea.:-))
Here is a quick ( SUPER QUICK!) tutorial on how I made his Macrame Christmas Wreath!
Materials you will need:
- Macrame Cotton cords
- Hot Glue Gun
- Fresh Greenery
I started with these driftwood pieces and some scrap macrame cords I had on hands. If you don’t have driftwood just go collect some, and if you don’t have macrame cords, you can substitute it with yarn.
I shaped out a tree…
It’s a tree…
Can you see?
Then I tied the corners with a macrame cord. All touching corners.
Then I added some macrame cords. Not too many but enough to be able to make a pattern.
After I added the cords, I used a VERY BASIC macrame knot ( learn the basic macrame knots in my MACRAME KNOTS post!) to make a fun pattern.
Once I was done with the knots, I pulled the excess cords under the driftwood, and I secured it there with hot glue.
That is it to my friends!
Guys! Not sure if you are in love with this wreath as much as I am, but I was super impressed with my last minute idea. I always realize that I work better under pressure and my last minute ideas always unique and “one of a kind”!
You can get more creative, of course, but I literally only had 10 minutes to do this..and I was happy with my make.:-)
What do you think? Would it be your kind of project?
