Now that we have macrame cord in our shop, we’ve been eager to use it for some new macrame projects. Meagan made this Josephine knot macrame plant hanger for our April collection and it is simply beautiful! As you will see in our tutorial, we used our natural cord for most of it and then added just a touch of the gray-blue macrame cord. We love how these colors look together, but of course you can always use whatever colors you prefer.

To get started, check out the supplies you need below. Then download our photo tutorial to start crafting.

Hang in there, friend

Macrame plant hangers are such a lovely way to display any type of greenery — real or not! For this project, we styled it with a real plant, but we think a paper plant (like this one) would work just as well. 

Since we have made a few macrame plant hangers, we are calling this one our Josephine knot macrame plant hanger. This is a new knot for us, so it’s not part of our macrame video course, but our photo tutorial will walk you through how to do it! If you have any questions, just reach out. Also, if you’re interested in the art on my walls, be sure to check out this post on my dining room remodel.
