Introduction: Laced Hangers Using Macrame
Step 1: Materials Needed
1 heavy duty wire hanger
needle and thread of coordinating color as fabric
no-fray stretchy nylon-like fabric cut into 2 strips 2 inchs wide of 4.5 yards length, or one strip 9 yards long. Sew several strips together to reach the length if necessary.
Step 2: Measure and Cut Material
Gathering your material with a small rubber band, like in the image below, is helpful when lacing your hangers so that the excess lace does not get in your way or get tangled.
Step 3: Sew Two Colors Together
Sew the two colors right sides together by hand with needle and thread.
Step 4: Begin Lacing/Knotting Your Hanger
Hold the hanger facing away from you between your knees with the hook side up.
Step 5: Tie First Knot
Tie your half square knot onto the end of the hook like so.
Step 6: 1. Over...
Step 7: 2. Under...
Step 8: 3. Around and Through
With each knot be careful to always tie it around the hanger.
Step 9: Tips
Lacing around the bends can be tricky. Pay attention to your knots and be careful.
Step 10: Another Tip
Always make sure your lace is untwisted and not twisted around the hanger wrong before starting a new knot.
Step 11: Continue Knotting/lacing to the End
The spiral effect happens naturally and by no extra effort of your own.
Step 12: End With a Bow
You can sew through the bow if desired to secure it in place and to keep it from coming untied.
