On your short list of home projects to tackle are window treatments. Sure, they make a BIG impact, but the supplies needed to totally renovate them can be costly. Meet the answer to your affordable accenting prayers: the DIY macramé curtain. Simply round up a few items you already have in your craft closet, and put your knot-tying skills to the test. The final result is a subtle, made-with-love statement that *doesn’t* tap into your bank account. Scroll below to see how to get these dip-dyed beauties done.
- macramé rope (approximately 4 feet)
- curtain rod
- fabric dye
- Start with 12 strands (approximately four feet long) of macramé rope.
- Fold the top of each piece in half, forming a loop and tucking through to tie.
- Slide all 12 loops onto the curtain rod, spacing out evenly.
- Working from left to right, tie two strands together in an overhead knot three inches below the top. Complete all the way across.
- Repeat for the row below alternating knots between the strands.
- Complete for five rows or more (depending on the length of your rope).
- Put your gloves on. Dip the finished product in the dye. Soak for about 15 minutes.
- Let it dry.
- Secure it to a nearby window and admire your new boho-tastic accent.
