  1. This is cute but not macrame ……sorry . Gluing rope on a board is NOT macrame

    1. southerncrush says:

      I realize that it’s not traditional macrame, but it has the look ~ a lot of the newer modern boho looks aren’t real macrame with knots either… I like them all! Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate you!

  2. Approximately how long do the ropes hang from the bottom of the board?

    1. southerncrush says:

      That’s up to you! I believe mine are about 1.5-2 feet long.

    So cute and just the sort of thing I was looking for to make this year. Thanks for the tutorial. ( I’m in Missouri, love all types of crafting-from vinyl, paper, decor, to sewing. I’m still going to try my hand at clay jewelry and resin. I also love to decorate cakes and cook. Thanks again for your posts.

    Great craft! My teenage daughter and her bff each made
    one from a kit I bought through MWR. The woman who put the kits together used soft thick white yarn with a silver thread thru it. SUPER cute! I had forgotten what she told me to do, so your tutorial was wonderful! Thank you!
