DIY Macrame Plant Hanger // Tutorial For Beginners
Hey guys! Today I’m gonna be showing you how to make a macrame plant hanger.
I love macrame and I wanted to be making this plant hanger for a while now. I love the vibe they bring to a space and how cute they look with a plant in them!
It is a very easy project and the end result will reward you for your effort! So, let’s show you how to make this macrame plant hanger!
Watch my video tutorial
Grab a wooden or a metal ring and pass through eight macrame strands, 4 yards each, until you reach the center of the strands.
Make the gathering knot
Then, you have to make a gathering knot to join all of the cords.
Make the square knots
Next, you’re gonna need to separate out four sections of four strands each that are close to each other. Then you’re gonna need to take one section and start making square knots.
You need to make fifteen square knots to the section you were working with and then apply this pattern to the other three sections.
Make the twisting half square knots
Next, you’re gonna need to take two sections that are close to each other and separate two strings from each section that are next to each other and you’re gonna make 30 half square knots.
Then I took the next four strings that were next to each other and continued my twisting half square knots until I ended up with four spiral sections.
Make the netting
After that, you need to connect the spirals together and all you have to do is to pick two of them that are next to each other and take the two cords of each spiral that are close to each other and create two square knots about 2 1/2 inch down from the spirals.
You then have to repeat this knotting for all the remaining strings.
When you complete the first row, move on to the second one. Pick two square knots that are next to each other and take two strands from each square knot that are close to each other and make another two square knots.
Then finish another row of knots that are 2 1/2 inch down from the previous row. And keep going until you complete three rows.
Make the final gathering knot
When you’re done with the knotting you’re gonna need to make the final gathering knot about 1 1/2-2 inch down from the last row of your square knots.
Trim the fringe
I cut mine at 6 inches down from the gathering knot and now it’s ready to be hung!
