How to Make a Super Easy Macrame Plant Holder

2 Materials
15 Minutes

If you can tie a knot then you will absolutely be able to make one of these trendy macrame plant hangers. All you need is some twine and a plant.

For my easy macrame plant hangers, I made them to fit pots (or glass jars) that are about 4″ across the top. The dimensions in this project will be for pots or jars that are approximately the same.

Start by cutting 4 lengths of jute twine 92″ long each.

Next, fold them in half and tie a knot about two inches down from the fold. Be sure to give a little tug to each piece of twine after you have made the knot to tighten it up.

Take two pieces of twine that are next to each other, and tie a knot approximately 14″ down from the large knot. Continue until you have tied all 4 knots.

Working about 4″ down from your first row of knots, grab one piece of twine under one knot and one piece of twine from the knot next to it and tie them together with a knot. You will be creating a diamond pattern. Continue until all pieces have been knotted to the one next to them.

You can see in the photo, I have placed the pieces that need to be knotted together next to each other. To finish off this row of knots, you will grab the last two and tie them (the top one and bottom one in the picture)

To finish off your plant hanger, grab all of the twine pieces and tie a large knot a few inches below the last row of knots. This will create a place for your pot to sit.

Hang your macrame plant holder in a sunny spot and add a pot or glass jar with your favourite plant, herbs, or flowers.

    How did you make the big knots in the last picture with the pot in the hanger? They look bigger than the. hanger in the instructions and I like the larger knots better.
