D.I.Y. Macrame Backdrop

We’re going all bohemian with today’s pretty project! Macrame decor has been gaining popularity in the recent years, especially with the current boho craze. It’s a craft that can get really complicated, so we thought we’d start with something really basic and easy to make — a macrame backdrop/curtain! I know this might still look extra complicated to make, but trust me — it’s really much easier than it seems. Take note that the instructions below are for a backdrop that is 1.5m tall and 1m wide, but feel free to adjust the measurements according to your desired final size. Let’s get started!



What you’ll need:

  • Macrame cording (which you can get from Flying Dragon in Sham Shui Po) and scissors


  • A wooden dowel or alternatively, a braided cord like below.




1. Cut 16 pieces of rope that are 3 meters long (twice the height of the curtain). Take a piece of rope and fold it in half. Slide the loop end under the braid (or dowel).



2. String the open ends of the cording through the loop and pull it tight to secure over the braid.




3. Repeat with each piece of rope, placing them about 2 inches apart until you reach the end of the braid.

Here are some of my favorite pieces to give you all a head start:
