Add Macrame Fringe to your Basket

Adding a macrame fringe to your baskets is a simple way to create a new look to any basket you have. These macrame buntings can be made in a variety of styles to suit baskets of any shape or size. This gives you the opportunity to really let your creativity run wild! Create a unique bunting to hang around your basket to add some boho flare, and I guarantee you will be getting compliments on your beautiful creation wherever you go.

The other wonderful thing about this fringe detail, is that you can also take it on and off your basket as you please, meaning if you change your mind (like I do all the time) then you can just slip the bunting off the basket and swap it with a different one. Better yet, make them in a few different colours to match whatever you are wearing for the day.


I have created a DIY macrame pattern for this garland for your baskets, so you can make this easily for yourself at home. The video tutorial will take you step by step through how to create the basket fringe seen in the images, and also explains ways to customise the pattern so you can make it your own way.

Here is what you need for the pattern:

- Basket

- Scissors

- Tape measure

- 3mm cotton cord

- Beads (Optional)


You will also need to know how to make the following knots. Click on each knot to be taken to a beginner friendly tutorial.

- Larks Head Knot

- Square Knot

- Double Half Hitch

- Wrap Knot


Watch the below video to see how to create these beautiful macrame buntings, so you can have a fringe for your basket.

I hope you give your baskets that macrame touch, and make going to the markets or the beach even more magical.

Here's to finding peace in creativity!
