Very easy to make self designed macrame plant holder using graphite paper, a sharpie, a white pot and some suede cord.

Step 1:

What you'll need:
- Graphite paper
- Metal rings
- Sharp pencil
- Gold Sharpie
- White suede cord
- White Pot

Step 2:

Print off your design. We used Ale Paul's Brownstone Sans to create this cute “best buds” design. Cut a piece of graphite paper and tape it to the pot with the dark side down. Tape your design on top of the graphic paper and use your pencil to trace the design.

Step 3:

After you’re done tracing, peel off the paper and graphite paper to reveal a faint image of your design. Grab your Sharpie and trace again. (We went over the design twice.)

Step 4:

Next, grab your suede cord. Cut four long strands that are equal in length and fold them each in half. We cut each cord to be 50 inches.

Step 5:

We used a noose-type knot to gather the cord and secure it around the ring. Next, separate the ties into groups of two and tie square knots 1/4 and 1/2 of the way down. Make sure the knots are all equally spaced so the pot sits level.

Step 6:

Tie a large “name of knot” at the bottom for your pot to sit on. And you’re finished! Give it to a friend or hang it up in your office — it's an easy way to brighten up any space. How would you use type in your next project?
