Pretty macrame accessories are all over the place lately. I’ve been itching to give macrame a try. I just can’t justify another crafty adventure while I already have so many unused supplies. I resisted the urge to buy rope & wooden beads & all that jazz and hunkered down with my crochet materials.

this is all you need to create the bunting

My efforts resulted in a ‘macrame adjacent’ banner that conveys the cozy bohemian feel of macrame (without investing time into actually learning how to make neat looking knots). Is this cheating? I’m not sure, but I really like the way my bunting turned out!

The bunting makes a nice addition above my desk. It turns my otherwise bland looking work space into more of a cozy, productive corner. 

*Quick note to self & anyone else who might be reading— Save yourself the frustration of trying to tape a bunting to the wall with low end washi tape. Spring for that ridiculously priced impulse buy washi tape.*

I drew from a bunch of different resources to create a granny triangle that I like the look & size of. If you want to get a better grasp on how to increase evenly around a granny square, this illustrated tutorial is a good place to start.

If you don’t know how to read crochet patterns, here’s a video tutorial!

As an afterthought, I decided that I want to add a touch of color to my bunting. Stay tuned for some adventures in dip dyeing with beans. Yep. Beans.

Until then, happy crocheting!
