24 festive projects using easy knotting techniques by Isabella Strambio (Author)

Add to favourites

Book Description

Create 24 stunning festive decorations all made using simple macramé knots and 100 per cent recycled materials. 

Start by learning 24 key knots and 8 beautiful patterns, all shown clearly using step-by-step photography. Key safety advice is given, as well as helpful tips for working with large pieces of macramé, knotting from an irregular-shaped support and keeping an even tension.

The 24 projects range from stunning tree and table decorations, to statement wreaths, charming gift tags and cute garlands perfect to create a stylish, cosy Christmas at home, or to give away as enviable gifts! Each project clearly explains which knots to use, the difficulty level, how long the project will take, and photographs of the steps are provided as necessary.

The projects are easy to follow, genuinely desirable and, best of all, really simple to make!
