DIY Macrame Pendant Light

2 Materials
Last weekend, I got my artsy fartsy on and made this DIY macrame pendant for our downstairs bathroom makeover, and I am actually kind of amazed at how well it turned out. I am smiling from ear to ear that I completed this and I love the way it turned out!

This whole process took about 2 1/2 hours to complete, and it is not nearly as difficult as you might think it is! All you need is a cage light, macrame cord, and scissors.
I purchased this cage light for less than $8 on clearance.
I completed this entire project by doing the same knot over and over again. It is called a square knot. And you can read very detailed instructions for how to do it yourself by clicking through to the blog. I even made a video that you can watch.
This might just be one of my favorite projects! And I love the ambiance it gives to the space!
Isn't this light just so much more interesting than just the cage light? It might take a few tries to get this repeating knot down, but once you have it, you can fly through this process! Let me know if you give it a try!

Suggested materials:

  • Cage light   (Target)
  • Macrame cord   (craft store)

    This just beautiful! Did macrame back in the 70s but this is TOTALLY UPDATED! I'm going to try this on regular shade form. Just got to find the best shape.
