Macrame Light Shopping Guide. (5 Macrame DIY, plus 18 To Buy)…

But one thing I’m REALLY loving is great macrame light. A woven chandelier or a covered cord can be such a fun design element. It’s attention-grabbing with all the pattern, but not over the top because of the modest, neutral color.
If you’re more apt to try a DIY macrame light project, here are a couple great posts and tutorials about that very thing!
