How to Make an Easy Macrame Plant Hanger
- 1/4" white twisted polyester rope
- (3) colors of thinner (1/32") polyester rope
- (1) screw hook
- (1) carabiner
Cut the rope into four sections of 25' each.
Thread Through Carabiner
Thread each section through the carabiner. Place the carabiner in the center of the ropes. Fold the ropes in half, creating 8 strands.
Add Colorful Rope + Wrap
Cut a 20" piece of rope in your first color. Tie around all 8 strands and wrap until there is a few inches of colorful rope left, then tie off.
Add More Colorful Rope
Repeat step 3 with a few colors of thin rope, creating a fun stripe pattern.
Tie Rope Into Knots
Separate the 8 strands of rope into 4 groups of 2. Tie each group of 2 into an overhand knot. Be sure to keep the knots the same distance away from the carabiner hook. These knots will designate where the top of your planter is.
Add More Knots
Lay your knots down flat next to each other. Knot together the 2nd and 3rd piece of rope, the 4th and 5th pieces of rope and the 6th and 7th pieces of rope using an overhand knot. Then, knot together the 1st and 8th pieces of rope. This second set of knots will sit in the middle of your planter, so make sure the length between the first set of knots and the second set match your planter. Tip: If you're using a 10" tall pot, the space between each knot should be 5 inches.
Add Colorful Rope
Gather all 8 strands and tie a piece of colorful rope around them. Wrap the colorful rope around the white strands, creating a stripe. This is the same technique as step 3.
Create Stripes Using Colored Rope
Create a few stripes of different colored ropes.
Place your pot into the holder and adjust the knots around the pot.
Cut the bottom of the rope under the striped section to hang as long or short as you prefer.
Add Hooks + Hang
Screw a hook into your ceiling, and showcase your new hanging planter near a window or outside on your porch.
