Macrame Mug Rug
Hello Creative Crafters!

This week I made a macrame mug rug. Macrame is fun and relaxing. So many options.

My video below shows how to make the mug rug and then come back to read about how to finish it up below.


Everything You Need to Know About How to Make a Macrame Mug Rug

To Finish it up:

After you have your ten rows of knots, measure 3" (inches) down from the last row of knots. Cut all your cords at the 3" (inch) mark. For the top, cut just under the knots that are attached on the 10" (inch) cord that your mug rug is attached too. Toss any extra cut cords and your 10" (inch) piece.

Depending on what you prefer, leave the cords as they are, untwist the cords as I have done in the picture, or purchase a macrame comb in your local craft store and comb out the ends for a fuzzy look.

I'd love to see how your mug rugs came out, feel free to post your pix. :-)
