Create a Beautiful Macrame Wall Hanging/Plant Holder Using TWO Knots

3 Materials
1 Hour

I love macrame projects as they are so easy to make and believe it or not you can create a beautiful project just using the main two or three knots. Once you have learnt the basic knots you are good to go!!

For this project I used some wood (you can use anything you like some pipe, driftwood, plank or bamboo stick..) and cut I cut 10 equal lengths of rope at 3metres each.

I created this plant holder using just two of the most common macrame knots, the square knot and the half-hitch knot.

 I did half hitch on left and the right side and the square knot in the middle. The photos should be self explanatory

Once the sides were done, I created the square knot in the middle and once the three met at the bottom, I tied them together in square knot.

I added some pins to the plant holder as I thought it was missing something.

      Thumb tack push pins can also be found in any Stationary store, Dollar Tree, Michael’s, Walmart or Staples stores just to name a few.

    How do you keep the pushpins from falling out. Do you hot glue them?

      Hi, thank you for the question, the knots are quite tightly pulled together so the pins are quite secure and haven't fallen out

    I loved this back in the 70's. Glad to know handmade items never go out of style. Keep up the good work.
