The Macrame Trend: 6 DIY Pieces For Your Home & Wardrobe

If you're an avid Pinterest user and a lover of all things interior design, then you'll certainly appreciate and enjoy what's to be covered.

You've probably already witnessed this latest craze in home decor that was highly popularized in the 70's and has since re-emerged into the contemporary design world; it has found its way back into the homes and wardrobes of our favourite gurus and celebrities in fashion, design, beauty, and entertainment - I'm talking all about Macrame

Macrame textiles focus on the technique of knotting in various combinations of hitching, though often half hitches. It may seem like a tedious (and perhaps even intimidating) technique to start and get the hang of, but it's nevertheless a versatile art with endless, creative patterned possibilities that can be achieved through patience and practice. 

To help keep you creatively inspired for the season, here are 6 affordable Pinterest-approved DIY macrame pieces that can add just the right amount of texture, beauty, and simplicity into your home, wardrobe, and overall lifestyle:
