dip-dyed macrame wall hanging

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

To create the macramé, measure out cotton rope to desired length and cut. Secure the rope to a dowel rod using a lark’s head knot.
TIP: Cover work area with plastic table cover and have paper towels handy to protect against any possible spills.

Step 2

Wearing rubber gloves, fill a large container or stainless-steel sink with three gallons of very hot water. The water should ideally be 140º F [60º C].
TIP: If tap water is not hot enough, heat water in microwave or kettle and add to the dye-bath.

Step 3

Pour ½ bottle of Scarlet dye into the dye-bath. Add 1 teaspoon of liquid dish to help promote level dyeing. Stir well.

Step 4

Test colour by dipping a paper towel into the dye-bath. If colour is too light, add more dye. If colour is too dark, add more water.

Step 5

Holding the macramé by the dowel rod, dip the rope portion into the dye-bath. Try dipping the featured macramé at a diagonal angle! Let the rope sit in the dye-bath for several minutes or until desired colour is achieved.

Step 6

To create the wave effect, use a paintbrush to add more dye and to clean up the lines.

Step 7

Hang your macramé in a safe place to dry. If it’s still dripping just take a paper towel and blot it to remove excess dye. Let dry for several hours.
