I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to drag the wedding recap out a little – it’s just so much fun re-living it all. :)

D.I.Y. Macramé Jar Holders

DIY Macrame jar holders

Trends are a funny thing – just when you think a particular style or decor is gone for good, it swings around again to be the new hottest thing. I was super skeptical about the resurgence of macrame that I’ve been seeing around lately (70s decor has never been my thing!), but as you can see, I’ve now jumped on the bandwagon. I actually love the combination of the macrame style and the natural look of jute twine. It reminds me of fishing nets and boats and sailors on old-timey ships, which is actually interesting because macrame was popular among sailors in times of yore. 

Anyway, to celebrate my change of heart, I thought I’d share a very easy D.I.Y. project with you – a simple macrame jar holder. I saw these at the market last weekend selling for a few dollars each, so this could be your road to riches – you’re welcome! ;)
