I’ve collected a lot of indoor plants over the past few months! I must admit I’ve become super excited to check out the plant section at Walmart every time we go! Now I have to find space for all my plants! I don’t have a lot of counter or table space so hanging them up has been a good solution!
I had some rope leftover from my Wine Bottle Twine Craft so I decided to try making a Macrame Hanging Planter. They are super easy and I can make a ton of them for $5, the cost of one roll of rope! (You can find similar rope on Amazon here!)
DIY Macrame Hanging Planter:
- The first thing you are going to do is cut 8 pieces of cord, keeping them all the same length. Mine were about 60 inches each.
- Line all your pieces of rope up and tie a knot as close to the top as possible, with about 2 inches of extra rope at the top.
- The easiest thing to do here is get someone to hold the knot as you lay out your rope on the table. I didn’t have any extra hands to help me, so I used a 10lb weight to hold my rope in place. Separate your rope into 4 sections, 2pieces of rope each, and tie knots in the section.
- Separate your ropes again, tying knots into adjacent pieces of rope, about 3 inches down from the first set of ropes. By this I mean don’t randomly tie knots, make sure you are tying ropes together that are right next to each other, and then tie the two end ropes together.
- Tie a knot with all 8 pieces of rope, about 3 inches down from your second set of knots. Try placing your plant in the hanging planter, if your hanging planter is too big to support it, untie the knots and adjust them.
- When you have figured out your knot placement, trim the cord ends. Save the scraps for a future project!
I’ve bought a couple macrame planters on Amazon for under $10 each (you can find them here and here) so this project could end up saving you quite a bit of money if you are looking to hang plants around your home. All you need are a couple ceiling hooks and you are ready to go!
