Macrame Privacy Wall

Earlier this year I asked for suggestion for creating a separating wall between neighbors.
My neighbor ran a cable from my garage to the house. I started by adding butcher's twine working strings. I was trying be consistent with spacing and the knots I used.
I didn't realize how difficult it was going to be to keep my knots even. Normally, I work on a board on smaller projects, but working against the wind and the height was a real eye opener.
I decided to go with panels so each would be different and add a little interest.
I cannot tell you how many times I changed the patterns. Even then I was still not impressed with the outcome.
It is very hard to keep the rows even. Again, the wind just takes the strings wherever it likes.
I tried to use all of the knots in my repertoire to keep the "wall" interesting.
When I thought I was "finished", I wrapped a 1/4" piece of conduit with the ending knots. After looking at the wall for a couple of months, I decided that next summer I would add 2 more panels and work on the ones I already knotted. The ultimate goal is to have Ivy, Honeysuckle, and cardinal climbers grow up the wall and create a little more privacy.

Materials used for this project:

  • 3 Cones of Butcher's Twine   (Ace Hadware)
  • Cable   (had on hand)
  • 1/4" conduit   (had on hand)

    When I first saw it I thought it was going to be made just plain strips to support climbers. But you have out done anything I've seen on ANY of the home decor sites! Such work, but such a beautiful work it is! Congrats on your creativity!
