DIY Simple Macrame Plant Hanger

DIY macrame plant hanger

Happy (belated) Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mothers out there.

I went to visit my parents for Mother’s Day. While I was there, I noticed that my mom had bought all of the materials to make a macrame plant hanger, but hadn’t made one yet. So, I offered to help.

We sat in her living room for less than an hour and put the macrame plant hanger together.

Things You Will Need
Craft rope
Large ring
Large wooden bead (optional)

rope for plant hanger

Step 1
Cut four long pieces of rope based on the size of plant hanger you want to make.

We needed a smaller hanger, so I stretched the rope the length of my arm span and cut them evenly.

Step 2
Evenly fold them through the ring and tie a knot at the top.

Step 3
Tie one double-knot a few inches down on each rope. The number of inches will depend on the size you want to macrame hanger to be.

Then, about an inch and a half from the first knot, make a second double knot.

Step 3
Repeat step 2, but this time, instead of making the knot on the same 2 strands, we’re going to create some webbing (like in the image above) by knotting the second and third strand, fourth and fifth strand, sixth and seventh strand, and the first and eighth strand.

The last two knots are going to create a circle.

Step 4
Tie another knot in the bottom of the hanger.

When you’re finished, you’ll have something that looks like the above.

It’s a great gift for Mother’s Day, too!

Mom had a terrarium sitting on her window sill that we decided to put in the hanger. It fit pretty well 🙂

Happy crafting!
