We just can't get enough of this 1970s throwback: macramé. Perfect for spicing up a tiny outdoor area (it allows you to hang your plants and fit even more greenery into your space, after all), it also creates a beautiful, laid back atmosphere when used in indoor areas.The best part about macramé is that you can totally buy it or
DIY it; both are affordable options! One of our favorite modern macrame how-to's is last year's great tutorial for pot hangers on the Skinny Laminx
. We personally think that would look spectacular using neon rope or twine.
Macramé doesn't just have to be for holding up a plant or two. In the post "Nice Knots: Macramé Made Modern" you see it used in furniture and accessories. In "Modern Macramé", we see Sally England use it in a modern way with room dividers, wall hangings and headboards. We also love Tamara Maynes' Macramé Owls.
And of course, Etsy always has plenty of items with a DIY feel without the DIY headache (if you're no good at knots):
1. Grey macrame plant hanger with paper beads $28
2. Handmade Spiral Macrame Plant Hanger $14
3. Dark gray macrame single plant hanger $10
4. Macrame Plant Hanger Vintage Style $12.50
5. Macrame Plant Hangers Vintage Style Trio $30
