How to Make Macramé Plant Holders
The DIY experts at HGTV Magazine created this summer project you may have enjoyed as a kid—now with grown-up style.
You’ll need four equal-length pieces of macramé cord for each plant hanger. Loop the cords through a wood ring and fold the cords in half so eight strands hang down (four on each side). Tightly tie a piece of string around the top of the cords, below the ring, to hold them in place while you tie the knots.
Take two neighboring cords and tie them together about halfway down using a Josephine knot (if you’re not familiar with it, check out an online how-to). Repeat with the other cords to tie four knots total.
Take one piece of cord from two neighboring knots and tie them together about four inches down, using a Josephine knot. Repeat with the other cords to tie three more knots.
Set a planter inside the net the knots have made and gather the remaining cords underneath. Tightly tie the cords with a piece of string.
Wrap colored string at the top and bottom in various colors as shown and tie with knots to secure.
