1. I love it. You have inspired me to do some macrame which I had not done since I was a kid.

    1. Oh I so love hearing this Sarah. Have fun!

  2. I love all of your macrame ideas they are so original and clever! Some, I would never have thought of, yet they come out so gorgeous.

    1. Thank you so much Deborah. Yarn is such a versatile medium and so fun to work with.

  3. Absolutely beautiful. Know exactly where I would put this.

    1. Thanks Barb. You should make one! And I want to see photos

  4. UMMMMMM this is seriously genius! Looks so freaking good and so expensive! You should sell them for beaucoup dollars!!!!

    1. Haha, thanks! I don’t think anyone would pay lots of dollars anymore if they’d find out how easy it is to make.

  5. Thank you for sharing! I’m new to macrame but plan on trying this project. Does the size of cord matter? I want mine to turn out like yours.

    1. Hi Rachelle, I like using the 4mm cord that I linked to. Good luck!

  6. I absolutely love the flush mount light cover. I can’t wait to make one to cover up the “boob” light fixture in our RV. I am confused about on thing. Your instruction on how much cord is needed for the top ring of the basket. It says 45 feet should be enough. Is this supposed to be 45 inches? 45 feet seems like an awful lot. I am using a 16″ basket. Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial. It is just what I have been looking for. Relatively new to macreme. I did make a large hanging table back in the 80’s. Oops, I am giving away my age! LOL

    1. Hi Linda, yes it does sound like a lot at first. Hope it works out for you.

  7. The more I think about and study this, 45 feet doesn’t sound so much. It just sorta floored me when I first read it.

  8. Gorgeous macrame project, so innovative. One question: why not trace the ceiling circles BEFORE u add your macrame design? Seems it would be much easier to see planter edges without the yarn.

    1. Hi Anna, yes you could do that but I didn’t know ahead of time that I was going to use it as a flush mount. I decided that after I made the chandelier first and that part was done already. Plus the macrame adds a bit to the diameter and there are ticker parts where the rods go down and it’s good to make sure that the screws don’t end up on those parts. Hope that makes sense 🙂

  9. What a great idea for covering the boob light in my Boho bedroom. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for reading and good luck if you make your own.

  10. Having never done this in my life, I’m 8/18ths done the square knot part after just a few hours working this weekend! But who’s counting!

    This will go in our newly minted teen’s room to complete a renovation upstairs. Our old bungalow has a dormered front bedroom so finding a light that has impact but isn’t very tall has been a challenge. Why are flushmount lights so universally ugly!? The planter is the perfect width and we can customize the tassel length at the bottom.

    Your directions are so spot on easy to follow, and after seeing how quickly it was coming together my kiddo and I had the brilliant idea that we should macrame some of her metal bedframe! We’ll see how that goes…

    1. Hi Julie, thanks so much for your comment. I’m glad you like it. And I agree, why are flushmount fixtures that are for sale so ugly? Good luck with the bedframe macrame too.
