Repurpose those old t-shirts into fringe on a macrame wall hanging in 30 minutes! This is a quick and easy wall hanging that ended up being unique with a ton of character.

This fun piece is made using half hitch knot and is attached to twine instead of wood or a dowel. It would make a great wall hanging, but was designed as wedding decor for a Mr. and Mrs. chair.

Copper pipe instead of beads gives this wall hanging some extra bling.

11. Macrame Feather Wreath from Craftberry Bush

This macrame feather wreath is made using yarn. That’s what gives the feathers that awesome boho crinkle texture! Of course you could make it with macrame cord, but why mess with perfection? Add as many feathers as you want and use any color yarn that strikes your fancy.
