Have you made any of our paper air plants yet? They’re very easy to make and so fun to decorate with! You can simply place them on a mantel or shelf — or you can craft an air plant holder. If you need some DIY inspiration, this mini macrame air plant holder is super adorable and a great project for those of you interested in improving your macrame skills.

Just follow our tutorial below and hang it up anywhere in your home! Since this is an intermediate project that uses four different macrame knots, beginners may want to start with something simpler like our hanging planter or our mini macrame wall hanging.

Knot Your Average Air Plant Holder

Since we have crafted a paper vase and a clay holder for our air plants, we thought it was time to try a different craft material. So our designer Meagan came up with this mini macrame air plant holder. Isn’t it cute? We are still really loving the look of macrame and are glad to see that it’s still popular in everyday home decor.

Another thing we love when it comes to home decor is combining different materials and textures when decorating. Our paper air plants give you a small pop of greenery along with unique shapes and textures while our mini macrame air plant holder provides a neutral look along with soft, cozy texture.

Ready to craft your own macrame air plant holder? You will only need a few simple things for this project plus our step-by-step tutorial, which you can download below.

How to Make a Macrame Air Plant Holder

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Note: Download the instructions to see the various macrame knots you will use for this project.
  2. Cut eight strings — five feet in length each. Fold each string in half and tie a lark’s head knot around the dowel with each piece of string.
  3. Tape down either side of the dowel; tie four square knots across using four strings for each knot.
  4. Tie three square knots between each of the knots above; take two strings from the square knots on either side to tie the square knot in between.
