Tools for Macrame Plant Hanger
Written Instructions DIY Macrame Plant Hanger Tutorial:
Step 1: Fold your 8 white cords in half and pull them through your ring. Make a Gathering Knot to attach them.
Step 2: This plant hanger has 4 sections for which the pattern repeats. Select 4 white cords that are close to each other and make a square knot.
Step 3: Work in the purple cord by placing it behind the two middle white cords and in front of the 2 outer white cords. Attach the purple cords back to the s-hooks. Make another square knot with the 4 white cords
Step 4: Take your purple cord, form a cross over the square knot you’ve just created, place them behind the two outer white cords and attach them back to the s-hooks. Make another square knot with the white cords.
Step 5: Take the purple cord down from the s-hooks. To make sure you see a cross knot on the back of each section, cross the purple cord behind the last square knot you’ve just made.
Now pull the purple cord in front of the two outer white cords again and attach them back to the s-hooks. You’ve now completed a full series of X-knots.
Step 6: Repeat this pattern until you have 13 purple X-knots on the front of each section.
Step 7: To attach all sections together, skip about 6cm (this depends on your pot size) and take the 3 inner cords from each section so you have two purple cords in the middle and 2 white cords on the outside.
Make sure the sections are straight and not twisted before you continue. Form a square knot with the outer white cords around the inner 4 cords.
Step 8: Make sure your pot fits before you continue finishing off the pattern. For my pot to fit, I skipped about 8cm before I made the final Gathering Knot.
Cut off your access cords and voila, you’re done!
