DIY Macrame Hanging Plant Holder October 16, 2015 Fashion and interior design oftentimes go hand-in-hand, and just as we’ve seen a comeback in bell bottoms and 70’s inspired fashion, these macrame hanging plant holders are finding their way back into our homes. They are fun and easy to make, adding a fun and playful touch to an empty corner or wall. There are a variety of weaving designs ranging from basic to complex. For this version, we chose to share a very simple and basic method that will take you less than 30 minutes start-to-finish. Materials: Chunky yarn or cotton filler cord Beads (optional) Craft Ring Scissors 12 toothpicks Tape Potted plant or glass bowl to place plant in. 1. Measure and cut 12 strands of yarn (these measure approx 150 cm ) 2. Make the ends even and tie them into a large knot, leaving some yarn to hang from the end. 3. Separate strands into 6 pairs of two. 4. Tie each pair with a double knot approximately 5cm away from the main knot. 5. Tie each strand to the next strand along, forming 6 pairs. 6. If you choose to add wooden beads, attach a toothpick to the end of each strand using tape. You can also wrap tape around the end of each strap as shown. 7. Thread bead onto one strand and the same bead onto the next strand. Continue threading all remaining pairs using beads. 8. Cut toothpicks or tape off the ends of the strands. 9. Thread all 12 strands through the craft ring and tie a knot to secure. 10. Cut a piece of yarn and wrap around the end of the strands as shown. You can hang via a screw a hook in the ceiling or wall, or use an S hook from a rod. You can make several of varying heights and sizes and create a wall display. Get creative and have fun!
