Wall OR Window? Beaded Macrame Ring Idea

Hmmm….I just used up all my macrame rings that have been laying around on a new craft idea that started out as a wall hanging to use up my HUGE collection of beads.

When I put the wall hanging on my diningroom wall to photograph, I liked how the beaded hanging looked on my wall, but I had the brainstorm: this would look great hanging in the window like folks hang pretty stained glass art.

I like it best in the window as a piece of art the light can show through.  However it looks super-cool on the wall and would really be a statement piece for a wall grouping!

Since I liked how the brown toned beads looked I couldn’t help myself, I had four gold macrame rings and the possibilities are endless.

I love the bright bead collection….so cheerful in the window….

….but it is darling on the wall!

Seriously I can’t decide which I like best…but that makes me think I have two markets for this craft, someone who wants something for their window or their wall!

Next post, I will give a tutorial with tips how I made the wall hangings.  I love the natural turquoise beads.

I think I prefer this hanging on the wall….what do you think?

 

I only had one more ring with 100 more ideas for beaded wall hangings!  I won’t get more rings until these sell.

This hanging features some pretty amber stained glass pieces.  I like it in the window because it is artsy.

Here it is on the wall.

I think it is prettier on the wall!

As promised next post I will show closeups how to attach the wire to the rings and my supply list!

After it is said and done, this fall toned beaded hanging is my favorite!
