Macabre Macrame: Spooky Yarn Wall Hangings for Halloween
It’s time to revisit an oldie, but goodie project, spooky yarn wall hangings perfect for Halloween. We got ferocious with fiber while I taught the simple, macrame knots used to make this creepy craft. Watch. Make. Enjoy!
- Macrame hoop (or embroidery hoop)
- YarnYAY! On the Daily (in colors, Laundry Day, or Family Meal)
- Craft felt
- Hot-glue gun
Step 1: Hold four-six strands of yarn together, cut to twice the length you’d like your finished piece to be.
Tie yarn onto top of hoop using the Larks Head Knot as follows:
1a. Fold strands in half to form a loop; slide loop under hoop top.
1b. Feed tails over hoop top and through loop.
1c. Pull to close knot. You’ll now how a hanging yarn strand bunch. Repeat this process across top of hoop, until you’re satisfied with the coverage.
Step 2: Tie individual hanging bunches to hoop bottom using the Half Hitch Knot as follows:
2a. Wrap yarn bunch over and around hoop bottom.
2b. Feel tails through loop creating by wrapping.
2c. Pull to close knot.
Step 3: Tie an additional piece of yarn for hanger to hoop top. Trim bottom hanging strands to even out.
Step 4: Cut out eyes and mouth from craft felt. Hot glue to yarn face.
