I am having so much fun creating these simple macrame designs! In case you missed it, check out my Simple Modern Wreath, it’s perfect for any season. Eliminating the need for storing away 3 other wreaths for each different time of the year.

Cause who has time for that? We are simplifying around here and less is more.

Supplies needed to make a simple macrame wall hanging with feathers:

macrame string on silver hoop to start making a fall wreath with feathers
  • Attach 10 macrame strings to your hoop using the lark’s head knot.
triangle macrame pattern using square knots
  • Create a triangle pattern using square knots. This entire wall hanging is made using basic macrame knots.
attaching strings of macrame fall wreath to the opposite of the wreath
  • Pull all of the strings tight across the macrame ring and secure using double half hitch knots.

Now we’re ready to add some color to this simple wall hanging with feathers!

I decided on mustard because yellow is my favorite color and mustard fits in perfectly with the color scheme in our living room, but you can use any color you want.

  • Fold two 6″ strings in half
  • Lay one under the string hanging from the wall hanging.
  • Lay the other one on top of the string hanging from the wall hanging.
  • Insert the ends of each into the loop end of the other and pull tight.

Here it is! All done!

This wall hanging started out to be a wreath, but the feathers added to much weight and it turned on the nail when I hung it up. Epic fail for a wreath. So, now it is a wall hanging.

Sometimes you just have to adapt when projects don’t turn out as expected. LOL!

Hi there! What would you say is the best length to use for your main 10 cords

Thursday 11th of June 2020

Hi Holly! Sorry for the late response! I made them 10 feet because once doubled and attached they are 5 feet. You could probably get away with using 8 feet, it just depends on how long you want them to hang down. I hope that helps!!

Hi Leah! The ring is 12 inches, but you could use any size you want to. So sorry it took so long for me to respond!
