I created this DIY Macrame Plant Hanger with a thrifted planting pot and some scrap yarn. It was so simple to make, and the best part is there is no right or wrong way to make a macrame plant hanger. It can be as complex or as simple are you want. This was my first one so I didn't snap during photos so below I've listed some simple steps that will hopefully get you on your way to creating your own diy macrame plant hanger.
- Grab some yarn/string/rope and cut 8 strips. The length you choose depends on how big/small your planting pot is and how suspended you want it from wherever you're hanging it.
- Fold your strips in half, folding over one another, and tie a knot on the end that will create a 'loop'. That look is what you will hang your planting pot from. The opposite end of your strips will all be open.
- Set your planting pot right side up in front of you and place the 'loop' at the bottom of the pot and lay the open strips over the edge of the planting pot.
- Your strips will be doubled since you folded them over so you will have 16 strips now.
- Next you will pair the strips in two.
- Eyeball how far down you want your 'knots' from your top 'loop' and created a knot. Repeat this until every pair of strips have a knot.
- Take one string from a pair and grab the string directly next to it from the pair next to it and repeat the knotting process.
- Once you are satisfied with the amount of knots you have you can turn your planting put upside down, open end of pot facing your 'loop' and tie a knot with all the remaining strings underneath the pot, giving it a solid foundation.
- Hang with S hook, or whatever you have on hand.
