About once a year we like to design a new plant hanger that you can make for either your paper plants or real plants. Although we have used macrame cord and clay before, this is the first time we’ve combined them to create an air plant hanger.
Like most of our other plant hangers, this is a great macrame project for beginners. Just follow our tutorial below and let us know if you have any questions!
I’ll be air for you
Our clay macrame air plant hanger holds two air plants and has a wooden ring for easy hanging. We typically like to use neutral colors for our macrame wall hangings (except this one time when we made this bright pink macrame plant hanger!). But you can always make your air plant hanger using a different color of macrame cord or clay.
This is such a beautiful way to display your air plants, so we’d love to see how you get creative with this DIY project! Be sure to share photos on our Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
