I’ve provided written instructions below along with photos, but I thought it might be helpful to watch a video to learn how to make this easy macrame plant hanger.

Instructions:

1. Cut your twine

Cut four pieces of twine 96” long each. So, that’s four pieces of twine, each measuring approximately 96”.

2. Make a Loop

Gather all four pieces of twine in your hand and fold them in half. Make a loop in the middle of the four pieces of twine and tie an overhand knot about 2” from the edge of the loop.

This will be the loop that you will hang the plant hanger from.

2. Make Knots

With the loop hanging from a nail or coat hook (makes it easier to work with the strands), take two strands of twine and tie an overhand knot about 5-6” from the knot You made in step 1.

Take two more strands and again make a knot about 6” down from the knot in step 1. Repeat this for the next 4 strands.

3. Make more Knots

Take one strand of twine from one of the sets of twine and one strand of twine from an adjacent set of twine and tie a knot about 6” down from the previous knot.

Repeat this with the other 6 strands of twine.

4. Make even more Knots

Take one strand of twine from one of the sets of twine and one strand of twine from an adjacent set of twine and tie a knot about 6” down from the previous knot.

5. Make Even more Knots again

Take one strand of twine from one of the sets of twine and one strand of twine from an adjacent set of twine and tie a knot about 6” down from the previous knot.

6. Finish the plant hanger

  • Gather all of the strands of twine together and make one big overhand knot midway between the last row of knots and the end of the strands.
  • Trim the ends so they are even.
  • Hang your planter and position your flower pot in the macrame plant hanger.

Make your Plant Hanger Longer or shorter

You can easily adjust the size of your plant hanger simply by cutting the twine into longer sections or shorter sections. You’ll also want to space your knots accordingly.

Let’s say that you have a flower pot that is only 3″ across the bottom. Just be sure to include your last row of knots so they come slightly up the side of the flower pot, like we did with Step 5 above. This will help to insure your flower pot doesn’t fall through the plant hanger.
