Fall Macrame Wreath (+ Pom Poms and Flowers)

First, let’s make the flowers!
1
To make the flowers, you’ll need a flower loom like this one. I’m using the largest circle loom.
2
Feed your yarn down through one of the slots on the side and secure it in the little notch.
3
Now, start wrapping back and forth around the pegs in a figure 8 pattern. I wrapped each peg twice.
4
Cut the yarn, thread it onto the large needle, and insert it down and out from under the loom.
5
Pull the needle out from under the circle loom, pulling the yarn through.
6
Carefully remove the round loom from the base,
7
Then, tie a knot on the back with the two ends of the yarn.
8
To make the flower center, thread the needle and insert it from the back, slightly off center.
9
Bring the needle up and over the center. Insert it back down into the flower.
10
Bring the needle back up through and make an X, crossing the yarn in the center.
11
Keep repeating that process until the center is all filled in and secured.
12
Yeah, like that!
13
Flip the loom over again and tie the loose ends together.
14
Pop the flower out of the loom and it’s done!
15
Here’s a couple more. I made 5 large and 6 smaller flowers for the wreath (but you do you!)
16
Now for the pom-poms!
17
Open up your pom-pom maker arms.
18
Start wrapping one side.
19
You want it so full it barely closes! This makes a nice fluffy pom-pom. Close it and cut the yarn.
20
Repeat on the other side and cut the yarn.
21
Using your sharp scissors, cut down the center channel all the way around the pom-pom.
22
Now, wrap another piece of yarn around the channel and knot it tightly.
23
Open up the arms, pull the pom-pom maker apart, and you’ll have a misshapen pom-pom!
24
I used cotton string for this one, so it needed to be brushed (for yarn, this is optional).
25
Trimming your pom-pom is not optional, if you want it to be round anyway. (It’s a lot of trimming)
26
Done! Now just make 50 million more! (OK, not quite, but it feels like it.)
27
I made 5 large ones, 15 medium, and 17 small pom-poms in assorted fall colors.
28
Here’s a larger one I made with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn. So fluffy!
29
Now for the macrame part!
30
Take a piece of rope about a yard long and secure it to be your hanging cord. Here’s the left side,
31
And here’s the right. 😁
32
Attach 12 pieces of 92” Macrame rope with larks head knots.
33
On each side, add 4 63” pieces of macrame rope. (8 all together.). Now you have 20 cords.
34
First, tie a row of square knots across.
35
The rest of the rows will be switch knots. Skip 2 extra ropes at the beginning and end of each row.
36
Don’t know what a switch knot is? I explain it in the written tutorial on my site!
37
Each alternating row has one less knot, which forms a nice triangle.
38
Attach the macrame panel to the front of the wreath. I just tied it to some branches.
39
Don’t worry if it looks funny (like mine), the pom-poms will cover all the problems!
40
Assembly time! This is a mock-up of what I was going for. Please don’t judge my drawing skills 🥺
41
First I lined up the big pom-poms and glued them in place.
42
Then I just started sticking the rest all over the place where I thought they looked good. Science.
43
Just feeling the pom-pom vibes. Where do you want to live little guy? OK, here ya go.
44
Now to add the flowers! Same as the pom-poms, just do what feels right.
45
Trim up the bottom fringe and it’s done!
46
Halfway through the gluing process I thought I had made a terrible mistake, but ended up loving it!
47
Cozy textures, fall colors, macrame... you can’t go wrong!
