Looking for large organic wall art that you can create yourself in minutes? Then this Gorgeous Wool Roving Macrame Wall Hanging in Minutes project is for you! For more creative wall art see my Home Decor selection and make something special for your abode.
We went to Los Angelas a couple of weeks ago for a summer vacation. While I was there I ended up walking right into a fun festival in the middle of Santa Monica. One of the coolest things I saw was a collection of semi-woven wool roving macrame wall hangings for sale. This large puffy fiber is called wool roving. Wool roving is the fiber used to make yarn before it is spun. You can also use this fiber for felting.
This simple project is for you all that just do not have the patience or skill for intricate macrame knotting. I used simple knots and copper pipe fittings to separate and join the fiber in a pattern. This is hands down one of the easiest home decor projects I have made yet! Although it is simple to make it also looks amazing and makes a huge statement in your home decor. You could literally fill a large space or a small space with a wall hanging like this. Here is how I put it all together!
DIY Copper Wool Roving Macrame Wall Hanging
- Merino Wool 1.1 lbs, 40 mm, 33yds Per Ball
- Wood Dowel: 36 inches x 1 inch: Cut Down to 29 inches
- Cotton Crochet Thread or Jute Twine
- Sharp Sewing Scissors
- (9) Copper Pipe Couplings: 1-inch x 1/2 inch width ( Lowe’s Hardware $.85 each)
- Floral Wire
Tie the wool around the wood dowel using Lark’s Head Knots.
Spread the knots out evenly and adjust them so they all look relatively the same.
Cut an 8-inch piece of floral wire to help with adding the copper beads.
Fold the wire in half and add it over the ends of two sections.
Pull the ends of the wire through the copper bead until both ends come through the bead. Pull the bead up the wool and place inches from the top knot. If you notice I added a bead to only one strand on the ends. The center strands go into the beads two at a time. Repeat all the way across strands.
Around 5 inches or so below the copper beads, tie a square knot into the two strands that are side by side.
A square knot to me is a double knot. Just fold the ends over twice and pull until snug. Repeat knots all the way across strands. Even out the copper beads and knots until every one lines up evenly.
Pull two strands from the second knot in on both sides and pull them through a bead. Fluff up all the strands and trim the ends evenly. Tie a piece of cotton crochet thread on either side of the dowel to use as a hanger. Hang up your new wool roving macrame and enjoy!
