Macrame Workshop Prep

This workshop turned out amazing! We loved the earthy subject matter, colors and textures. Here are just a few snaps of us getting ready for the main event.  Above: we found these rad geometrical beads but the holes were not large enough for our macrame cording. Not to worry, we love any excuse to bust out the drill and it worked perfectly for these baubles! 

Each person attending the workshop got to pick out a succulent {from a local flea market} to hang in their macrame planter.  We planted them in round fish bowls which we dipped in a cool gray color.  These little guys pack so much personality!

We've become obsessed with macrame and we couldn't wait to do a full wall-hanging.  We took out the hand saw to cut some copper piping and started up with this mint green cording.  Can't wait to see it finished!

The centerpieces:  We needed them heavy enough for people to tuck their hoops under for support at the workshop! We just took terracotta pots and saucers from our local home improvement store and gave them a twice over with gold and hot pink paint.  Planted some succulents and cacti and covered with white rocks.

The Snacks: The Pichuberry.  Everyone at the workshop can laugh about this one.  S.L.I.G.H.T. O.B.S.E.S.S.I.O.N

Photos of our lovelies and their plant hangers to come tomorrow.  
Happy Happy Easter Everyone.
