For the Fall 2021 One Room Challenge, I’m helping my daughter-in-law Lilly transform her small office into a cozy boho retreat. This is week 5, so we are busy adding unique accessories to this super sweet room. And what conveys a modern bohemian vibe better than a macramé hanging shelf?

- wooden dowel – 26″ long
- 5mm cotton rope – 178 yards (534 feet)
- 17mm wood spacer beads
- wooden shelf
- scissors & masking tape
Cut 32 pieces of macramé rope, each measuring 200 inches. Tape all rope ends with masking tape to prevent fraying during the knotting process.
step 1 – end straps
To prepare the end straps of the wall hanging, using Lark’s Head Knots, tie two pieces of rope (each 200″ long) onto the dowel as shown below. It is important to have the outside cords 140″ long and the inner cords 60″ long.
