Wait, What is Macrame?
If you are not familiar with macrame, it is the art of decorative knotting. It was very popular in the Victorian era, boomed in the 1970s, and has experienced a resurgence recently. Typically, you will see macrame wall hangings, necklaces, draperies, and plant hangers, but this style of knitting can also be applied to easter baskets. What a creative way to make a completely unique basket, especially compared with the typical plastic disposable type. With a quality macrame easter basket that you make this year, you'll be able to re-use it year after year.
