Cotton-corded macramé planters and wall hangings can be found in Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, West Elm and Etsy shops. Now you can make you own décor at the same quality level as these high-end retailers but with a unique artisanal flair, thanks to Natalie Ranae's stunning creations shared in this book.With beginner-friendly step-by-step projects and a helpful guide to common macramé knots, anyone can pick up this craft and get impressive results from their first project. A huge appeal of macramé is how easy it is to get a variety of different looks with a few basic techniques, so each of the 20 impressive designs features a variation at the end, giving readers endless inspiration to adapt the projects in new ways. Readers will be amazed at how easy it is to create stunning works of art that add a special touch to their home décor.
