During this strange time – of lots of free time – I’ve been finding joy in gardening, reading and doing crafty projects. I’m writing lists of all the things I’ve been wanting to do for ages but never got round to, and taking this opportunity to actually do them! Not all days are easy… sometimes I feel as though I’m living through groundhog day and I miss my family so much, but I find keeping busy is the best way to stay happy.
One project I finally got round to doing was making a macramé wreath. I found it surprisingly easy for something that is so intricate and beautiful once finished. I’m planning on making three that go down in size and hanging them on the wall above my dining room table.
I’ve made a video tutorial so you can make a wreath too. I just feel that at this time sharing projects and things to keep our minds busy is really important. Creating a product makes you feel as though you have achieved something. This is my first ever video tutorial (in fact, it’s my first time learning how to edit a video – which has kept me busy for best part of a week!) so I hope it guides you through it clearly. I felt this was a much easier way of teaching macramé than through photos and written descriptions.
I’d love to know if you found the tutorial helpful and to see photos of your projects.
Happy making! …stay safe & happy.

(Wooden embroidery hoops work great for this project, too!)
