Macramé from The Urban Acres

Macrame Table Runner

The Urban Acres

I love seeing all the macramé wall hangings that are oh so popular right now, but they aren’t really a fit for my space. I was searching for a way to bring the trend to my home in a way that suited my style, and I came up with the idea of a macrame table runner! The challenge was to figure out a way of making it without the use of any anchor or dowel rod at the top. I creatively solved that problem by tapering both ends with knots and fringe. Now, it graces my table all season long and I am always getting compliments!

The best part of this DIY is the simplicity! I was able to make this runner in under and hour from start to finish. Plus, it’s a great way to show off those knotting skills I learned at summer camp!

How to make it

Step 1: This project is great because it utilizes one really easy knot. Chances are, you've already used this knot to make a million friendship bracelets! In case you forgot though, here is a refresher on the square knot.

Step 2: Once you've mastered your square knot, it's time to start alternating them. All you have to do is identify the strands you are working with. Here are the steps on how to complete the tapered edge!
