Macrame is such a quick way to wrap and hang pretty much anything you can think of. (Seriously. People have done it to shoes.) Plant hangers is just the start of it. For a quick and summer-loving DIY I’ve put together this tutorial to make macrame wrapped bottle vases.

It’s the perfect upcycled touch to a summer garden party. Hanging or not, you choose!

Macramé is such a fun craft to play around with, and today I’m sharing a macramé project that’s sure to be a bit different from the 70’s plant hangers we’re all used to.

In this project, macrame is used to cover up a camera strap and give it a funky (and more comfortable) makeover. Who said cord was the only material for macramé?

This technique can be used to cover all sorts of objects, so take a look at the tutorial and try it out. You don’t need to stick to camera straps.
