If you’re an enthusiastic plant parent, you will need this easy DIY plant hanger in your life as soon as possible. We’re probably facing the same critical issue here: too many plants, too little counter space… The solution? Learn how to make a DIY plant hanger - no macrame skills needed!

Read on or view the detailed tutorial on Very Liv, to find out how to make this color block hanging planter in a few easy steps!

For this DIY, all you'll need is some cotton cord and embroidery thread in your favorite colors!

To start off, cut four 60″ (152cm) lengths of cotton cord. Bend the cotton cords in half and find the middle. Measure 2 1/2″ (6cm) from the center point and start braiding the cords for 5″ (12cm).

Now, bend the braid to create a loop and wrap the first color block.

Wrap for a couple of inches then tie the last thread tight and cut it short.

Group the 8 lengths of cotton cords in pairs, so you now have 4 pairs in front of you. Now, measure 14″ (35.5cm) from the color block and knot each pair together.

Next, create another row of knots 3″ (7.5cm) below.

For the second color block, measure 3″ (7.5cm) after the last row of knots. Group all the cords together and start wrapping your embroidery thread around tightly for 3 and 4″ (7 to 10cm).

Finally, cut the cotton cords to create a tassel.

That’s all! Hook your DIY plant hanger to the ceiling or to the wall and nestle your planter between the cords. They look even better when you make a few at different heights!
