Some of our most popular projects have been DIY plant hangers. It’s been a few years since we made our first macrame plant hanger, though, so we decided it was time to design a new one! 

This project is easy for beginners and uses a half knot, half knot spiral, square knot, and wrapped knot. If you want to brush up on your macrame skills, we have a video course for members on how to make 15 different macrame knots.

Let’s Hang Out and Macrame

Macrame is one of those activities that’s great for groups — or fun to do solo. Either way, it’s very soothing and you’ll end up with something beautiful for your home! Unlike our first macrame plant hanger, this one features a wooden ring at the top and includes some pretty wooden beads throughout the design. If you haven’t incorporated beads into your macrame projects yet, we will walk you through it step by step in our tutorial below.

Crafting Tips: One suggestion we have is to hang it on the wall while you are working on it. This will make it easier to work with the cords. If you find that the cords are still too long and difficult for you to work with, you can wrap each one up a bit shorter and secure it with a clip or hair tie. This will prevent all of the cords from tangling together.

How to Make a Macrame Plant Hanger

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Feel free to choose whatever color of macrame cord you prefer.
  2. Cut six macrame cords that are 10 feet in length each.
  3. Fold cords in half and thread through the wooden ring.
  4. Take a 2-foot length of cord and tie a wrapped knot around all cords just below the ring.
