I’ve had this project on my mind for months! I’m happy it’s complete. It turned out even better than I imagined.

Here are the materials you need:

Step 1 – Start prepping an assembly line. First, wrap 30 bunches of twine consisting of at least 30-35 individual strands each by about 16″ in length. Next, cut 30 strands of macrame cord each 3′ in length.

Step 2 – Make the tassels. Take one bunch of twine and trim the edges off with your scissors. Tuck one strand of the macrame cord in the center of the bunch, then wrap an elastic band around the ends. I chose to wrap two bands on each tassel, but one is probably enough. Then, trim the opposite end of the bunch of twine, and flip it up side down.

Step 3 – Thread the brass tubing on each strand of macrame cord then tie around the wooden dowel.

Step 4 – Tape the design you’re going for on the wall, then re-position each strand so that the top of the brass tubing hits the tape.

Step 5 – Turn the entire wall hanging around so you see the backside of the knots. Glue the knots against the dowel, then trim the excess cord and flip the wall hanging back around.
