Hanging Macrame Basket Tutorial

Hi everyone! Chasta from Soulful Notions here 🙂

In today’s tutorial, we will be making a Hanging Macrame Basket. As you can see from the photos I’ve included it can be free-standing as well.

I love using these hanging baskets in my studio workspace to hold a wide range of items, from ropes, to pens and tools. My baskets are super versatile and can also be used as a planthanger or decor of your choice.

DIY Hanging Macrame Basket Video Tutorial

In this video tutorial, I will focus mainly on making the large mustard yellow basket, but I’ve also included the instructions for the smaller basket beneath the video.

I should also mention that I consider this to be an intermediate tutorial and it moves quickly compared to my beginner videos. If you are new to Macrame or need help with square knots or alternating square knots, please watch this video.

Before you begin…

Please note that if you tie tight knots, are using a thinner cord, or are an intermediate macrame artist, you can most likely get away with cutting your cord lengths down by 6inches/15cm up to 1 foot/30 cm. Otherwise, please stick to the lengths I’ve listed.

To secure the bottom knots of the basket, glue is optional.

Instructions for Mustard Basket

Basket Height: 12inches/30cm
Basket Width: 12inches/30cm

For this project, I’ve used 4mm single-ply cotton Macrame cords by Ganxxet.

Cut your cords to the following lengths

Handle: 8 cords x 11feet/335cm
Body: 56 cords x 9feet/274cm (to make 28 floating square knots)

Instructions for Smaller Black Basket

Basket height: 10inches/25.5cm
Basket width: 8inches/20.5cm

For this project, I’ve used standard 3mm 3-Ply Macrame cords from Amazon.

Cut your cords to the following lengths

Handle: 4 cords x 9feet/274cm
Body: 40 cords x 7feet/213 cm (to make 20 floating square knots)
