Continue with last post, I made more wood stick crafts with macramé. I believe the interest of macramé comes from my childhood. Back then every girl in school liked to make own bracelet and personal backpack decoration with colorful cord. In college one of my classmate could make really complicated traditional Chinese macramé. I learned a little from her and started to keep some books and cord on hand. So, I am excited to enjoy this long lost interest in a modern way.
Other than the little decoration in picture above, I also made a wood stick frame which was burnt with pattern. Then put cord on to it. Next, I decided to make a large piece so that I can put all macramé décor on my guest room wall.
The little square one with long lace tail was bought from store long time ago. I finally find a good spot for it. While I was making the large piece, I had to cut the stick short so it could fit better. I took my time and burned some complicated pattern on that short stick. Then I tried to make a fish figure using some leftover cord. The process of figuring out a new pattern was fun~!
Currently I am trying to combine all these things together in one project, including oil painting, wood burning, mosaic and macramé. I hope the idea works. We will see. 😀
By the way, I may just stick to smaller macramé project. The large one is heavy. The cord can be seriously heavy.
