DIY Macramé Mandala Wall Hanging

DIY Macramé Mandala Wall Hanging


Hey guys, I made a macramé circle wall hanging, wreath, or mandala and here’s what I did. I’m using this 4mm cord. For the circle, I’m using one of the rings from a 10” embroidery hoop. I cut 7 cords at 42” to make 1 set of the pattern. I ended up using 70 cords to complete the whole circle. Align the ends of a chord to find center. Place it over the ring and bring ends through loop created. Pull them tight, creating a lark’s head knot. Do this for the 7 cords. Use the 3rd cord from the left as the holding cord. Bring it over the cord to the right of it and make a double half hitch knot, going toward the right. To do this, make a number 4 with the left cord over the holding cord. Pull the end through loop created and do this twice. Then, use the 6th cord from the left as the holding cord. Bring it over the cord to the left of it and make a double half hitch knot, going toward the left. To do this, make a backwards 4 with the right cord over the holding cord. Pull the end through loop created and do this twice. Take the two middle cords of where the 2 knots meet and make a double half hitch knot, going toward the right. This should form a v. Next, use the 3rd cord from right as the holding cord. Bring it over the cord to the left of it and make a double half hitch knot, going toward the left. Then, use the 6th cord from the right as the holding cord. Bring it over the cord to the right of it and make a double half hitch knot, going toward the right. Take the two middle cords of where the 2 knots meet and make a double half hitch knot, going toward the left. The diagonals should look like they’re going toward the center. Next, use the 1st cord from the left as the holding cord, and make another row of double half hitch knots until you reach the center. Then, use the 7th from left as the holding cord and make double half hitch knots until you reach the center. With the 2 middle cords, make a double half hitch knot, going toward the left. Then, use the 1st cord from the right as the holding cord, and make another row of double half hitch knots. Next, use the 7th cord from the right as the holding cord and make double half hitch knots. With the 2 middle cords, make a double half hitch knot, going toward the right. The diagonals should look like they’re going away from the center. Now for the middle section, use the 2nd left cord from the center as the holding cord. Make a double half hitch knot, going toward the right. Then, use the 2nd right cord from the center as the holding cord. Make a double half hitch knot, going toward the left. With the 2 middle cords, make a double half hitch knot, going toward the right. Make another row of a v. When you reach the center, make a double half hitch knot, going toward the left. Then, make another set. For the section where the 2 parts meet, find the center. Make 3 rows of a v. The double half hitch knot for the center of the first row goes toward the right, the second row’s center knot goes toward the left, and the third row’s center knot goes toward the right. I made 10 sets. I cut the extra cord using the width of a post-it, which was 2” x 1 1/2”. I kept the extra cords for another project. Then, I combed out the stands. I started from the ends and worked my way up. I went back to shorten the length, using the smaller side of the post-it. This part is optional but I strung and knotted an extra piece of cord to the back. To hang it, I put a nail through the hole in the macramé and through the loop in the back for extra support and here’s how it turned out.

  1. Stunning! Can't wait to try this. I'm bad with following mathematical patterns like this so I know I'll ruin it but whatever, it looks fun hahaha
