How to make a Hanging Macrame Candle Holder

These hanging macrame candle holders are so simple to make.  Lowe’s has everything needed. Lowe’s has an amazing array of colorful nylon cord. Can you imagine?….these candle holders could be made to match any decor or party.  I am thinking red, white and blue for the Fourth of July!

Not in to color? Twine would make beautiful natural looking holders!

So grab some nylon cord and some glass light bulb covers (found in the lighting section) and you are ready to go. You will also need a metal ring for each holder.

Cut the cord into 5 pieces each 75 inches long.

Gather the cords together and feed through the metal ring. Place ring at the center of the cords and tie a knot below the ring.

Take two cords next to each other and tie a knot 8  to 10 inches down. Do this to all the cords (5 knots).

Take a section and measure about 2 inches below the knot. Tie one of the cords from that section to one of the cords from the next section. Do this for all sections, until each piece is tied.
