Macrame Air Conditioner Cover

We have an old air conditioner in our sun room that works great but isn’t very pretty to look at. I made this macrame cover for it. It hides the a/c unit and matches the boho style of the room.

Before – The Old ugly air conditioner in full view.

First I built a simple box that slides over the air conditioner. I then stapled a piece of cotton rope to the top of the cover and made a macrame screen with rows of square knots.

I couldn’t find any macrame cord locally so I used cotton clothesline I found at the hardware store.

This is an easy project even for Macrame beginners! If you can tie a knot you can make this! Check out the link below for a square knot how-to video.

I am so happy with the way it turned out! It was such an easy project. Love how it covers up the air conditioner while still allowing the air to circulate.

If you make one for yourself I would love to see it! Tag me on instagram @handmadejoydesigns #handmadejoyblog
