Sometimes I need a fun project to relax with, to take my mind off school, work, and the little stresses in life. Today, this abstract denim wall hanging was that project. I've had some piles of denim lying around my studio room for a while. Some of them made it into a woven pillow, but today I decided to create a fun macrame hanging with them. See below to make your own!
Cut 6 strips of denim. I was working with half-legs of old jeans, but if you can use an entire leg, perfect! You'll have more to work with. If you need to lengthen your strips, cut 12 lengths, and attach two together to make one longer strip, as shown in the photos above.
Tie the strips to the dowel as shown, folding each strip in half around the dowel and pulling the ends through. Begin square knots. You may have enough length to do as many rows of square knots as you like, but I only had enough to do two rows. To learn how to make a square knot, click here.
You may want to fill in gaps or make it look a bit more uneven/abstract. To do this, tie more strips to your hanging in the same way you tied strips to the dowel. And you're finished! Hang proudly.
