Macrame Hanging Lights

Recently I decided to give my entire living room an overhaul. The works - crown moulding, paint, and new decor. One of the items I decided to incorporate were some macrame hanging lights.

These are a bit time consuming to make because they are 20 feet long, but they are extremely simple! I used the same half square knot repeatedly to create a spiral design down the length of the cord and I love how they turned out. I hung these in a corner over a big comfy leather chair of ours and they add an unexpected unique sense of warmth and texture.

The materials I used for this project are as listed.

  1. 1/8” Cotton Cord - I order mine from the Knot and Rope Supply Company. You can find the exact cord I used here.

  2. Vintage Style Light Bulbs - Home Depot carries some inexpensive options that are quite large.

  3. Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue - I found mine at Hobby Lobby, but any craft store will carry this as well as Amazon.

  4. 20’ Pendant Light Cord - This was a two cord set and a great deal on Amazon.

A full tutorial for this project is available from my Youtube Channel below.
