How To Make A Macrame Chandelier

Mar 17, 2021 00:42:41

Easy knots together with rope do wonders and can crate fabulous atmosphere! Just try this project and you will believe me.It`s not the project just for one evening, but you will enjoy it a lot because it`s really pretty and easy.

Let`s get started!

Things you need:

  • lampshade
  • scissors
  • iron
  • 35 metres of 0.5 cm cotton three strand rope (we`ll separate it into three strands for a softer feel). If you don’t use three strand rope or don’t want to unravel it, you’ll need to buy 105m.

Step 1.

For the base we deconstructed a a cheap lampshade from Ikea that measured 30cm in diametre (12 inches). You want to remove the covering so the wire is left over. We ended up just using the top wire frame and the light holder, and didn't use the bottom one.

Step 2.

Cut your rope to size, our pieces were 3 metres per piece or 118 inches, and then unravel it into three strands.  FYI The formula for working out rope length is length of the final woven chandelier times 6, since you'll be folding the pieces in half before knotting them to the lampshade base.

Step 3.

To get that gorgeous soft tassel look, we unravelled the rope and then ironed it to make it straighter.

Step 4.

Fold your separated pieces of rope in half before tying them to the lampshade base using a reverse larkshead knot as shown below.

Step 5.

Begin the first row on the chandelier by tying half knots.
