Having a blast with crafty peeps and macrame

I had my first Crafternoon of 2016 on Friday night. I partnered with the North Vancouver Community Arts Council for a Modern Macrame workshop as part of their Casual Friday Nights series on. We made macrame planters out of jute and thrift store finds then added gorgeous succulents.

Here's Tessa from North Vancouver Community Arts Council rocking it out with macrame.

A planter in progress. The beads are from Urban Source on Main Street. I painted them then added a coat of Mod Podge.

We were fun, we were focused, we were industrious... And we kicked macrame butt.

Adding some awesome spiral knots to our planter and lovin' it.

I LOVE succuclents. And macrame planters!

Once we finished our main project a few of us whipped up a second DIY. So much macrame love in the room!

A couple of finished projects.

And why not?! A macrame Mason jar with a candle in it.

Tessa rocked it. She made two very stunning macrame projects.

Here are all of our completed projects. A thing of beauty!

I love the range of finished projects that we came up with and everyone was happy with their planter. Yay!

Big thanks to all the participants for joining me and bringing their macrame mojo. And to North Vancouver Community Arts Council for the opportunity to craft with them.

Also thanks to Stacie at Dyhkof Nursuries for helping me choose some awesome succulents for the workshop!

Here's to Crafternoons, awesome partners and surrounding yourself with fun peeps to craft with.
