While at Creativations in January I received some Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn and a card showing how to make a macrame plant holder. I decided to give them a try. The Maker Home Dec yarn is really nice. It’s a tubular yarn with a core in the center of the tube. I think it would make a great rug! The colors it comes in are great for current home decor trends as well.
Bernat Maker Home Dec is a soft and chunky tubular yarn that stitches up quickly. Available in 16 versatile shades, you can make home décor projects for every room in the house! Machine washable and dryable for easy care.

As you can see, I made a plant holder, but not for a plant. I had this ceramic square container that I’ve been looking for a use for. It works nice in the plant holder as a place for all my Mod Podge. The yarn was great for this use. It doesn’t have a lot of stretch, so it isn’t growing, and it’s nice and sturdy, so I don’t worry about it falling down.
Maker Home Dec is also great for bags and baskets. I’m thinking of making some round little baskets with the rest of my skein for some organizing. It’s thick enough that it will be sturdy on its own, without needing to be starched.
This really is a great home decor yarn. Give it a try and let me know what you think! You can find it on Amazon HERE.
