macramé hanging luminary holder

Make your own Macramé Hanging Luminary Holder with jute.
Step 1

Cut two 30" [76.2 cm] strands of hemp.

Step 2

Find the middle of the stick. Take one of the 30" [76.2 cm] strands and fold in half. Slip knot over the stick a few inches to the right of the middle.

Step 3

Repeat Step 2 for the left side of the middle.

Step 4

Gather the ends and tie a loose knot and hang from a nail, or other sturdy fixture, to build the Macramé Hanging Luminary.

Step 5

Cut four 15' [457.2 cm] strands of hemp.

Step 6

Gather two 15' [457.2 cm] strands of hemp and fold in half. Slip knot over the stick approximately 1" [2.54 cm] to the right of the hanger from Step 2.

Step 7

Repeat Step 6 for the opposite side. Adjust help strands to retain balance.

Step 8

With the four hemp strands hanging on the left side, make a square knot. To do this, take the left strand of hemp and create a 90° angle across the front of the other two middle hemp strands and behind the fourth strand. The fourth strand then wraps across the back of the middle hemp strands and pulls forward through the “loop” of the 90° angle. Slide it up to the top to lay just under the stick. Repeat this action in the opposite direction to complete the knot.

Step 9

Repeat three more times for a total of four-square knots on the left side.

Step 10

Repeat Steps 8-9 with the hemp strands on the right side.

Step 11

Gather the two middle strands of hemp from each side and pull towards the middle. Approximately 4" [10.2 cm] from the last square knot, make a series of five half square knots. To make this, take the left strand of hemp and create a 90° angle across the front of the other two middle hemp strands and behind the fourth strand. The fourth strand then wraps across the back of the middle hemp strands and pulls forward through the “loop” of the 90° angle. This creates a twisting effect.

Step 12

Pull the middle most hemp strand from the outside left and the right two strands towards the middle to join with the four strands hanging in the middle. Separate into three sections of two hemp strands. Make a series of four-square knots approximately 3" [7.6 cm] from the first middle series of knots.

Step 13

Take the three left strands of the hemp from the middle and pull together with the outside strand. Make a series of four square knots approximately 2" [5.1 cm] from the middle knot.

Step 14

Repeat Step 13 for the right side to complete the top half of the Macramé Hanging Luminary.

Step 15

To create the luminary holder, gather the two middle strands and tie into an overhand knot approximately 5" [12.7 cm] from the last series of square knots.

Step 16

Take the next two strands to the right and tie an overhand knot even with the first knot.

Step 17

Repeat Step 16 for the two strands next to the middle knot on the left side.
TIP: There now should be three even knots in the middle and one loose strand hanging on each side.

Step 18

Take the two outside loose strands and pull them together evenly behind the three middle knots and tie them onto an overhand knot.
TIP: There should now be four even knots.

Step 19

Take two side-by-side knots and separate the strands. Drop the two outside strands and tie the middle two strands into an overhand knot approximately 2" [5.1 cm] down from last knots. This attaches two knots together with one strand each.

Step 20

Take the dropped strand from the right knot in Step 19 and the left strand in the next knot (working to the right) and tie in an overhand knot.

Step 21

Repeat Steps 19 and 20 with each knot, working in a circle to the right.

Step 22

Pull all strands together and tie on in overhand knot approximately 2" [5.1 cm] from the last knots. Trim ends as desired.

Step 23

Untie the top loose knot in Step 4.

Step 24

Determine length needed to hang and tie into an overhand knot. Pull tight and trim ends as desired.

Step 25

Add sand and a LED candle to your Mason jar.

Step 26

Insert Mason jar into the holder.
