Step 4: Make it Hang
For my first planter I basically took craft wire and twine and treated it like I would a hemp bracelet (I don't exactly know what that kind of weave it is called, though I think it is similar to macrame if not the exact same thing). And I wove the twine around the wire to hide the wire from sight.
For my second planter I eliminated the craft wire and decided to intersect the weave every now and then to help it keep it's shape.
This hemp bracelet weave is kind of hard to explain without pictures, so if ever you were to reference the pictures this would be a good time for it... But basically you will have a minimum of 3 strings (I usually use two and fold them over to make 4) two on the outside and the rest in the middle (the more strings down the middle the thicker your end result will be). Take one string and make a 4 over the top of the middle string. Then take the other string and go over the tail of the 4. Then Bring the string under the cross of the 4 and pull it up through the middle. Again, this sounds really confusing, but it's quite simple once you see the pictures... It was one of the favorite camp crafts back when I was a counsellor, so if you can't figure it out go see if your children are better at understanding my child care saturated mind.
