How to Make an Easy Spring Hoop Macrame Wreath
I’ve been fascinated by the current macrame trend for some time. I even bought a roll of cotton cord from Amazon months ago, but I hadn’t tried to make anything until now. As I wanted to make a new wreath for spring, I decided to try my hand at a macrame wreath!
It’s time again for the monthly Creative Craft Blog Hop, graciously hosted by Andrea from Design Morsels. If you’re stopping by after a visit with my friend Lynne from My Family Thyme, welcome! I hope you have a chance to visit all of the talented bloggers. The links to their blogs is at the end of this post.
Being new to macrame, I did some research and found an easy way to make a macrame wreath for a beginner. Best of all, you need only three supplies!
DIY Macrame Hoop Wreath Tutorial
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 24 feet of 3 strand (4MM) 100% cotton macrame cord
- 8 inch metal hoop frame
- thin ribbon
- scotch tape
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Measure and cut the macrame cord into (2) 12 foot lengths. Put scotch tape on all of the cut ends to prevent unraveling. To start the wreath, tie the two cords once around the wreath form. Leave about four inches of “tail”.
Pull the two strands of cord up to form a loop. Make sure to keep the strands close against each other. Place the cord behind the wreath form.
Pull the cords under the loop as shown. There will be a lot of cording to pull through! Tighten the cords against the wreath form, and start repeating steps 2 and 3.
Continue the process until the wreath is completely covered with macrame cord. This takes time, so put on some music and have fun crafting!
When you reach the end, untie the cords that were tied in the beginning. Trim the other two cords to about the same length as the first two. Tie the cords in square knots. Trim the excess cording and put some hot glue on the ends to prevent fraying.
Add a simple spring bow and you’re done!
I just love how my macrame wreath came out! It’s simple, neutral look fits into farmhouse, minimalist and boho decor. You could hang it alone unadorned year round, or add a seasonal bow or other embellishments.

Simply gorgeous wreath idea.
Rebecca, this wreath is so pretty! I love the simplicity, texture, and versatility. I have never tried macrame, but your tutorial is very clear and easy to follow. It is always fun to hop with you! Happy Spring, my friend. Pinned!
This is lovely, Rebecca. I haven’t tried macrame, but you make it look easy! It is a pleasure to hop with you again. Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
This is so simple and classic looking. It never occurred to me that you could do something like this as macrame. I really love the way it turned out. Great tutorial, too. Thanks for being in the hop.
Rebecca, I haven’t done macrame before but I love simplicity of your wreath! Happy to be hopping with you again ♥
I learned how to macrame when I was in first grade (lol now I’m dating myself). I have forgotten how to do it. I love your wreath and now I want to learn again so I can make one too. Thanks for sharing.
What fun, and it turned out so cute! I love that macrame is coming back! There is another blogger that does macrame things all the time and they are so pretty, I would love to make a table runner, you’ve inspired me Rebecca!
Wow, macramé is having its moment. I’m with Carol, and remember it back in the day 😉
But I think people need this kind of craft, and your easy instructions make it easy to follow.
I don’t think I’ve ever done macramé before — even during the 60’s when I was an adolescent. Your sweet wreath and helpful instructions has inspired me not to miss the trend a second time Rebecca! Just gotta figure out where I’d put the wreath or who to give it to as a gift. It seems like a therapeutic craft during these trying times.
This is something I want to try. I am loving this wreath. Thanks for sharing. Pinned!
That is simple and easy enough for anyone to do it. It reminds me of making friendship bracelets when I was young.
I’m so glad macrame is back in fashion again. With pieces like this, it really should be timeless. I haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, but am so inspired by your project to try it. Thanks for sharing it Rebecca!
I don’t know Rebecca, you sure made this look easy. Somehow, I don’t think it really is that easy! it looks very pretty, will you try some more macrame projects now? I keep admiring the macrame table runners I have seen!
I love the macrame craze that’s happening right now! I took a class and got caught up in the fad way back when I was in my twenties and I’m considered a senior citizen now. So you can imagine how long ago that was! It’s a fun way to add texture and design to items! And I’m slowly using it in different ways now. Your macrame wreath looks beautiful!
Rebecca, I am so impressed. I remember the macrame craze from my college days (dates me), but never tried it. Your instructions are so clear. The simple wreath is so sweet and would be a great project for a first timer. Thanks so much.
