Easy Macramé Wall Hanging Project for Kids

A few weeks ago I led a private macramé wall hanging workshop for kids and we had a blast!

I used to teach kids quite often, but I now specialize in teaching adults, so this was a bit of a novelty for me.

I developed a simple macramé wall hanging pattern that we did during the workshop.

We used only lark’s head knots and square knots for the project, with some beads to embellish!

Materials

Here’s my pattern and scribbled notes.

Here’s my pattern and scribbled notes.

Pattern

  • 1st row: square knots, moving left to right

  • 2nd row: skip two cords, then continue with square knots moving left to right

  • 3rd row & 4th row: square knots, moving left to right

  • 5th row: bead

  • 6th row: square knots, moving left to right

  • 7th row, 8th row, 9th row: skip two cords, then continue with square knots moving left to right

  • You can finish here if you have younger kids and let them do their own knots (it’s fun to see what they come up with!)

  • 10th row — For more advanced/older kids, start with cow hitch knots on either end and square knots in the middle center cords (see image)

  • Tie off with two square knots, gathering all the cords.

I pre-did the lark’s head knots for the younger kids on the dowels and they taped the dowels to the table and worked off the table. I found this easier than having the kids stand for the whole time! I put some of the older kids in the middle so they could work standing up or sitting down if they wanted.
