How to Make a Macrame Wall Hanging Wreath for Fall
STEP 1: Make Macrame Wall Hanging
First, we will start off by cutting our macrame cord.
Measure out 14 pieces of cord at 8 ft each, and one piece of cord at 3 ft.
Take the 3 ft piece and tie the ends on to the ends of your dowel or stick, about one inch from the ends.
Now we will attach the macrame cord to the stick using the lark’s head knot.
If you need a refresher on how to do macrame or are just learning, you can find everything you need to know on my Ultimate Guide To Macrame!
Group the 14 strands into 7 groups of two, spacing them out by about an inch.
Next, create a square knot in every group of two across the stick.
Skipping the two first stands of cord, split the first two knots in half and create another square knot in between the knots, leaving about an inch of cord to fill the distance they are apart.
Leave the last two stands unused, as with the the first two.
Continue this all the way until you have created a triangle.
Cut off the extra cord, about three inches down, following the shape of the triangle and then unravel the remaining cord to give it a nice fringed look.
STEP 2: Glue On Fall Floral Stems
Now we will glue on our floral stems to give this macrame hanging a beautiful pop of fall!
Start by cutting and arranging your base pieces which will be your branches and leaves.
Arrange them so that their foliage is facing out and the bottom stems are facing toward the center with a space in the middle.
That is where we will glue the main flowers.
Once you have the foliage where you want it, glue it down in a few spots to secure it to the stick.

Now, start filling in the middle with some filler flowers and accent stems, attaching them with the glue gun.
Finally, we will add in the main flowers, gluing them to the middle open space.
And that is it!
Now you have a beautiful piece of Fall decor you can hang on your door or in your home!
It’s pretty simple and easy right?
I ended up deciding to keep mine on the front door!
I love unique wreaths and hangings on my door so I thought this was perfect!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and happy crafting!
As promised, here are the printable instructions:
- Cut out 14 pieces of cord at 8ft long and one piece of cord at 3ft long.
- Tie the 3ft long piece to each end of your dowel or stick to create the hanging string.
- Attach each of your 8ft cords to the stick using the lark's head knot.
- Create 7 groups of two with about 1" between each pair and then create a square knot in every group.
- Then do a square knot between each group along the next row, leaving the two end strands unused.
- Continue this all the way down until you've created a triangle of knots.
- Cut off the extra cord at about 3" from the bottom of the knots and then unravel the remaining cord for a fringed look.
- Cut and arrange fall stems along your dowel or stick with the foliage facing out and the sticks facing in and glue them onto the stick using a hot glue gun.
- Fill in the center of the stick or dowel using smaller accent stems and flowers and glue them in place.
- Hang your fall macrame anywhere you like - on a wall, above the mantel, or even on your front door!
