Macrame Supplies – Rings & Dowels

To make a Macrame plant hanger, you need between 3mm and 5mm Macrame cords (3-Ply, single twist, or braided), a small wooden ring (for most plant hangers), and for some designs, a small wooden dowel.

I usually browse Etsy until I find something that matches my project. You can easily search for sellers near you and support local businesses in the process! Here are my favorite finds

Wooden Rings
Metal Rings
Standard Wooden Dowel

Macrame Supplies – Cords

When you’re looking for gorgeous colorful Macrame cords, I can recommend Bobbiny. Their eco-friendly and recycled Macrame cords are a joy to work with and will make all your Macrame plant hangers look absolutely stunning.

For Macrame plant hangers, I recommend using 3mm to 5mm Macrame cords in either 3-Ply, Single Twist or Braided. What cords you use for your project also depends on the tutorial you follow. You can usually find this information in the video description on YouTube.

There are plenty of Macrame cord stockists that sell Bobbiny cords in their online shop. You can check our handy guide for the best local Bobbiny cord suppliers near you.
