Hi, it’;s Sarah Sherman Samuel here yet again from Smitten Studio & A Sunny Afternoon with a new present-capable DIY. I enjoy the texture and dimension of woven or macrame wall hangings, but they can be really expensive to get, as they are usually so thorough and time consuming to make. Proper now I am saving all my pennies to place in direction of our home renovation. So until our finances recover, I made a decision to develop a easy wall-hanging that is reminiscent of my favroite macrame pieces (with the addition of a small copper bling!).
Supplies required for this DIY are:
25 yards of 1/2” (dimension 5) Cotton Piping
3 copper pipes measuring one/2″ x 2′
19 copper couplings 1/2”
4 copper tube caps 1/2”
a hack noticed
I started out by cutting off an 18″ length of cotton piping, then I tied a knot onto a single of the copper bars, about 4 inches from 1 end (photographs 1 and 2). Then I cut off the excess piping to about 3/4” (photos 3). Up coming, I tied another knot about the second copper pipe so that the 2 copper pipes have been about 6” apart (picture 4).
From there I tied an additional knot 6 inches down the cotton piping, added on one of the copper couplings and secured it with an additional knot straight under that. Lastly, I trimmed the and excess cotton piping at the bottom to a 3/4″ tail like the best. To carry on on, comply with the very same steps for every single subsequent row rising the length of the cotton piping by about 3” every time till you hit the center. Continue from there decreasing the length by 3” each time to match the opposite side.
To create the style in the middle I cut down the remaining 1/2″ x 2′ copper pipe into 3 pieces using the hack noticed (the 2 tiny ones measuring 5″ long and the middle one particular 7.5” prolonged). Be careful with the edges of the reduce pipe, I used the file right here to smooth out any sharp edges. To finish it all off I placed the tube caps on every finish of the 2 copper pipes and voila, that is it!
I am loving the texture, the subtlety of the white on white, and how the copper really shines. I feel it brings just sufficient visual curiosity to our entryway with out breaking the bank. It would make a excellent vacation gift as well! Maybe for a special gal pal or stylish sister? I may tackle one more a single to present as soon as my fingertips recover from tying so a lot of knots! xo Sarah
