A wood circle, craft rope, and a few inexpensive tools are all you need to make a stylish planter with this simple tutorial. To adorn your planter, you can braid the rope or add feathers, beads, or other accessories.
How are hanging plants made?
- The location where you want your planter to hang should be marked. Think about the amount of light the plant you wish to hang there needs. Additionally, be sure to space the holes appropriately if you’re hanging multiple plants in the same location.
- Using the drill bit, create a pilot hole. Make sure your bit is just a little bit smaller than the hook’s screw. This guarantees a tight fit for the hook.
- Put the anchor onto the bolt of the hook such that the wings fold inward if your hook kit contains metal toggles that are spring-loaded. As you insert the bolt into the ceiling, hold the wings together and turn it until the wings open and the hook is fastened.
- Suspend your plant! You can purchase extenders at any garden supply store if the rope or wire on your planter isn’t long enough.
Step 1Cut the rope to size
You will need to cut eight sections of rope into equal lengths in order to make this fashionable yet straightforward rope hanger.
Depending on the particular plant container you have selected, the appropriate length will vary. Generally speaking, the longer your rope needs to be, the bigger the pot. However, you’ll also need to add a bit extra to account for the knots and plenty extra to hang your planter with.
A few inches before the end, secure all eight strands with a tight knot.
Step 2Secure the rope to the base of the pot
Place the knot in the center of the pot after turning it over, and then split the strands into four groups of two. The bottom of the pot will be divided into equal parts as a result.
Small strips of adhesive tape should be used to fix these strands in position. Then, just past the base’s edge, tie a little knot in each group. These knots ought to be apparent once the job is finished and the pot is placed back upright.
Step 3Create the knots
You are now prepared to begin tying the rope plant hanger together. One rope from the first group and one rope from the next group should be taken, and they should be tied together in a knot. Be sure to place this in the middle of the two upper knots. Continue until the first row is finished, traveling all the way around the pot as you go.
Pull the rope very gently to remove any slack, then use a small piece of sticky tape to hold each knot in place. Although the rope will be kept in place by the tape, it will make succeeding rows easier to knot together when it is eventually removed.
Continue by tying the next row of knots in the same manner. Again, the size of your pot will determine how many rows you need. However, we advise leaving a 1/2 inch space between the last row and the top edge for all projects.
Step 4Tie it together and hang
Last but not least, flip the pot over one more and tie the eight rope strands together in a single knot. You can tie the knot at any desired height. Just make sure that all of the ropes are the same length (therefore allowing your pot to hang level). If they are, cut off any extra, and take off all the adhesive tape.
You have a few alternatives for hanging your brand-new macram plant holder. The rope can be hung directly from the screw hook if you like. Alternatively, you could attach the rope to a wooden ring and hang it there for a more tasteful and polished look.

What alternative to a hanging basket is there?
Use wicker baskets or little buckets instead of conventional hanging baskets to hang your plants. Before putting the plant in the wicker basket, pot it in another container. Drill drainage holes in the bottom of plastic buckets and paint or decorate the exterior as desired.
How can you use yarn to construct a straightforward plant hanger?
Generally speaking, hanging plants cost more than their basic, potted counterparts. Make your own potted plant hangers from spare yarn scraps. Because yarn is available in so many different shades, tones, and textures, it’s simple to match your plant hangers to the furnishings in any room of your house. Simple knots can be used to make a strong, useful, and lovely item of home décor.
Select a thick, bulky-weight yarn for this project. The best fibers for ordinary wear and tear are synthetic fibers, such acrylic. Wool may warp in the presence of water and friction, and cotton loses its elasticity with time.

The length of your plant hanger should be measured. This is the distance between the bottom of the plant’s pot and the hook from which you will hang the plant.
Add five times to this measurement. To this size, cut six pieces of bulky-weight yarn. You would need six lengths of yarn that are each five feet long to make a one foot plant hanger.
The yarn bits are folded in half. A sizable metal O-ring should be moved across the yarn strands until it reaches the center fold. Use a hitch or slip knot to tie the yarn beneath the ring to keep it in place.

Heavy duty yarn should be divided into strands. There should be twelve given that they are folded in half. Make three groupings of four strands out of the strands.
Use a bulldog clip to secure the metal ring. A safe surface, like the edge of a desk, table, or couch, is ideal for mounting the bulldog clip.
Choose a single quartet of strands. This group should be tied off from the other yarn strands using an overhand knot to keep it together.
Heavy duty yarn should be divided into strands.
Using two strands held together as one, tie two square knots with the yarn fragments in the clipped group. The knots should be positioned such that they meet the top edge of the flower pot. Avoid tightening the square knots; they should be firm but loose enough to allow you to still see the pattern of the knots’ construction.
Use two strands that are held together as one to tie two square knots in each of the remaining four-strand groups. Place these knots so that they meet the top edge of your flower pot. You should be able to see the design of the knots if you don’t tug too hard on the knots. The yarn should now be divided into three portions, each with one overhand knot and two square knots.

To the bottom of the flower pot, weave all of the yarn strands, interlacing and adding knots as you see fit. Any additional knots you tie in the yarn strands are just ornamental; they are not necessary. Put a square knot or hitch knot on each of the strands and secure them at the base of the pot.
The yarn strands’ ends should be carefully cut or left hanging to create a stylish tassel.
To add glitz and glamour to your yarn plant hangers, string beads onto the strands of yarn before knotting.
Create a crochet chain for each initial strand of yarn if you are skilled in the chain stitch of crochet to add a more twisted, beautiful touch.
Make mistakes or explore with knots without fear. Knots are always reversible. As you make your plant hangers, take some time to experiment with the yarn.
