How to Set Up Your Macrame Workstation

Learn how to set up your ultimate macrame workstation with everything you need in this step by step guide!

Below, you'll find all the tools you need including macrame racks, boards, hooks, scissors, and more.

Macrame Racks

One of the main things you'll need for your ultimate macrame work station is a decent rack.

The easiest way to go is with a garment rack. You can get an inexpensive one from IKEA for under $20 (I have one and they work great!) or you can grab one of these options below.

They range from the more utiliatarian side to ones that'll look amazing as decor as well.

Macrame Brushes and Combs

Another important tool you'll want to have in your macrame arsenal is a good brush and a good comb.

You'll want a metal comb, plastic ones will just break (trust me, I know from experience.) They're great for untangling fringe and combing out small sections.

A pet slicker brush works well to get that perfect fringe, especially over larger areas.

Check out these good quality options!


You can never have enough storage, no matter what type of craft you do!

Macrame cord, scissors, brushes, beads, rings, hoops, and everything else has to go somewhere. Here are some handy ways to store your macrame supplies.

Desk or Table Top

Some macrame projects are much easier to do sitting down. Sometimes you need a table and it can be as simple as your kitchen table, or you can just macrame on your lap while you're sitting on the couch watching TV.

If you have a dedicated work space, one of these desks is a great choice because it has storage built in as well!

Other Accessories for Your Macrame Work Station

Now that we covered the big stuff, here are some other accessories to add to your macrame workstation that will make your craft life a whole lot easier!
