DIY Plant Hanger


  1. Cut 8 strands of yarn 7 feet [2 m] long. 
    Top Knot: Fold all strands in half and knot together, approx 1½” [4 cm] from top (fold edge). Tape Top Knot securely to flat surface to continue.

Take 2 unused strands from Group 2 and 2 strands from Group 3, tie together with overhand knot 3” [7.5 cm] down from previous knot. Repeat with 2 strands from Group 3 and 2 strands from Group 4, then 2 strands from Group 4 and remaining 2 strands from Group 1.

I remember making these macrame plant holders as a teen and we added wooden beads or plastic colorful beads to give them that added touch. I can not wait to try to make some again. This is just what I am looking for. Nice project to do with the kids and easy to follow directions.

These are so handy, and not just for plants. I have used these to keep things out of reach of children and pets, to hang things out of the way, and to help organize small spaces. Cut your strands longer and add a knot or two at different levels to make it multi-tiered.

What a beautiful yet simple way to get your plants up in the windows so they can soak up some of that nice, warm sunshine. I love how you can make dozens of these for every room in the house or each window. I agree with Cheryl Y that the steps are super easy to follow.

I love this how to for the Chic Hanging DIY Plant Holder. I have made 12 of them. I love plants of all kinds and I have 12 hanging in my living room. I added 4 large wood beads to mine on step 3, it helps hold the pot into the holder. For larger pots I did step 3 two times, and they came out great. I also added a metal ring to hang the plant in step 1. I thought I had a photo on my lap top, but it's on my facebook page. Sorry.. Anyways, this is a great easy how to for plant lovers. I like that it walks you through the steps to make nice plant holders. It's so much cheaper to make your own and you can use what ever color yarn to match your decor. Thank you so much for sharing this free DIY how to.

I don't have much space in my apartment. I used to have a herb garden when I lived in a house which I miss. I'm going to make this plant holder and hang up some herbs in them. I think it will look quite nice. I can't wait to get started.

During the 80's my parents found macrame as a hobby to work together. They made some of the most amazing pieces, from plant hangers to hanging tables. Looking back I wish I would have been more involved but this is a great starter piece. Getting those plants up off the table and in the sun will be great.

When i made the very top loop, I also put in a metal ring to make it easier to hang on a hook.
