Have a set of outdoor chairs that have seen better days? Turn those old aluminum frames into gorgeous DIY macrame garden chairs!

Upgrade Your Outdoor Seating with DIY Macrame Garden Chairs

This weekend, decorate your backyard or patio with pieces of usable handmade art that are ideal for late summer lounging! All you’ll need is a free afternoon, some large-gauge macrame cord — I think larger gauge paracord might work too, if you’ve already got it on hand — and an aluminum chair frame to get started. (Don’t have aluminum chairs cluttering up your your garage? Think of this project as a great excuse to explore some neighborhood yard sales!)

Upgrade Your Outdoor Seating with DIY Macrame Garden Chairs

Macrame is a fun way to add some personality to many parts of your home decor, and this project is a great place to get started. The best part is because this beginner-friendly design doesn’t contain large holes, your newly made-over lawn chairs will probably be way more comfortable than the original seats. Hooray for handmade!
