No more surface area for plants? Hang them! Here’s an easy macrame plant holder you can whip out in 30 minutes or less. This recipe creates a plant holder for 4-7 inch plant pot, up to 6-8 inches tall.
For this project, you will need:
- 67 feet of 5mm rope, cut into:
- 6 10-foot pieces
- 1 3-foot piece
- 1 4-foot piece
- 2-3 inch hoop (metal, wood – your choice)
- S hook
- Somewhere to hang your project as you work
Knots used (knot reference):
- Finishing knot
- Overhand knot
- Square knot
Hang your project using an S hook. Find the midpoint of the 6 10-foot pieces and hang on the ring. Using the 3-foot cord, create a finishing knot to gather the 6 10-foot pieces of rope.
Working in cord pairs, create overhand knots approximately 4 inches from the bottom of the finishing knot. You will end up with 6 overhand knots.
Working in groups of four, create 3 square knots approximately 3 inches from the bottom of the overhand knots. You will end up with 3 groups of 3 square knots each. Make sure you are using cords that naturally hang ‘next to’ each other for your square knots.
Again, working in groups of four, create 3 square knots approximately 3 inches from the bottom of the first group of square knots. This time, using 2 cords from one group of the above square knots and 2 cords from the adjacent group of square knots. You will end up with 3 groups of 3 square knots each.
Using the 4-foot cord, create another finishing knot approximately 3 inches from the bottom of the second group of square knots.
Trim the loose cords to your desired length.
Insert plant, hang, and enjoy! Above features a 5-inch pot; below features a 7-inch pot.
