Did you guess I'd make the DIY Macrame Plant Hanger from the items listed in my weekly faves? As you may know, each week I post a list of my favourite items (decor, furniture, clothing, whatever), then I pick one and make the next day. This time it was down to three; the knot cushion, the stool or the macrame plant hanger. I picked this one because it's so easy. Sometimes I sugar coat a DIY project but this one was so easy it requires no sugar coating.
It looks complicated but it's so easy. In fact, I decided to make a video because it was so easy (okay I think I've reached my cap on the word "easy"). Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments below.
And if you're old school like me here are some pretty pictures to illustrate how to make it.
Here are the things you'll need. Yarn, rope, twine or macrame string, scissors and a bowl of succulents (or whatever you like).
1. Cut 8 pieces of yarn about 4-5 ft in length
2. Gather the yarn and fold it in half. Tie a knot at the fold.
3. Separate the yarn into groups of two. Grab two sets and tie a knot. Grab the next set and tie a knot. Continue around until all sets have been tied.
4. Now, take the yarn hanging from the knots above and tie them together.
5. Lift it up by the top knot to ensure all knots are even with eachother on both levels. Adjust as necessary.
6. Tie a knot at the bottom.
7. Fit in your bowl of succulents.
That's it! So easy.
