I have to give credit, where credit is due! I saw this idea on a Free People ad recently, and fell in love. But, I didn’t love the $98 price tag!
I have done some basic macrame in the past, and thought I might could figure out how to make some of my own. It was fairly simple, once I got started. So, I want to share with you how to make the cutest macrame Christmas lights.
supplies for macrame Christmas lights
3mm macrame cord (you can go a bit thicker if you prefer a bulky look)
9 feet of white string Christmas lights
I used white lights and also lights that have a white base/bulb holder. The lights that were my inspiration were white lights in a green base/bulb holder. I prefer the all white because it blends in with the macrame.
directions for macrame lights
First, you need to find a place to hang your string lights, so it is easy to work on this project. Hanging them from a rod or even a hook/nail on the wall up high, works great.
