DIY-ify: $5 Macrame Plant Hanger

The 70′s called and it wants macrame back. That’s not going to happen because I love a cute macrame plant hanger. They are so cute and I love them. You can put flowers or succulents in your hangers, or how about some herbs? Wouldn’t these be cute with a mini oregano hanging out in there? A little grouping of herbs hanging in your kitchen window?

Supplies: 

  • Colorful yarn
  • Cute mini planter
  • Plant (I used a succulent)
  • Scissors

Directions: 

Step 1: 

Cut out eight 36 inch long pieces of yarn.

Step 2: 

Tie a big knot to keep all your yarn pieces together. This knot will also be the center of the bottom of the hanger.

Step 3: 

Split up the yarn into four sections (2 pieces per section).

Step 4: 

Tie a knot in each section. The spacing from the main center knot to the first section knot is up to you. Since my planter is tiny, I tied my first knot about 1/2 inch from the center. These set of knots should be somewhere under the planter base. Repeat this step with all four sections (the first set of knots are highlighted in pink).

Tip: feel free to test the planter in the yarn as you go along. This will help you place the knots properly.

Step 5:

Next, grab a piece of yarn from one section and match it with a piece of yarn from it’s neighboring yarn section. Check the image above for help. Repeat with all four sections. Again, the length from one knot to the next will depend on the size of your planter. These knots should be located in the bottom 1/2 of your planter (the second set of knots are highlighted in yellow).

Step 6:

Repeat step 5 to make another set of knots. These knots should be located around the top 1/2 of the planter. Repeat with all 4 sections (the third set of knots are highlighted in blue).

Step 7:

The last set of knots should be located somewhere above the planter (see image for reference). Tie all the yarn pieces into a final knot a couple inches above the last set of knots (you’ll see the fourth set of knots above the plant).

Step 8:

Tie a loop above that fourth knot. From here you can braid the remaining yarn, put some beads on, or just plain tie a loop. It’s completely up to you.

These items would also be SO cute as little gifts and/or party favors!

  1. I love that macrame is back in a major way in the interior design world. I love the contemporary plant hangers and wall hangings! In many cultures worldwide macrame never went out of style. My husband is Coco Paniora Salinas, a macrame jewelry artist from Peru. In South America, the art of knotting macrame is always contemporary!

  12. It does not matter if you’re buying tiny furnishings
    or large ones, cheap or pricey merchandise. The furniture market
    is highly competitive and it is a buyers market, which is very good for us looking
    to furnish our homes. Oak is a harder wood which makes it

Herefter tager du dem to og to og binder knuder, så de danner et net forneden, og til sidst binder du en knude hvor alle snore er samlet. Trævl snoren op og klip så alle ender er lige lange…se eventuelt en udførlig vejledning her. [...]
