Do-it-yourself macrame
Macramé, or the art of creative knotting, may look difficult but its really about as easy as tying your shoes and as inexpensive as a ball of twine. All you actually need to join the growing ranks of macramé addicts are your fingers, some string and the mastery of a few simple knots.
