Introduction: Simple Macrame Plant Hanger
String, twine, rope of any kind
Cut 4 equal lengths of string, 60” or longer. Use your height or wingspan to measure.
Fold your string in half. Tie a knot at the top, leaving a loop.
Divide the strings into pairs of 2. Knot each pair of strings about one handspan down from the top knot.
Divide the Strings. Pair together strings 2 and 3, 4 and 5, 6 and 7. Knot each pair about a palm’s width down from the first row of knots. Pair and knot together strings 1 and 8. This creates a circle.
Repeat step 4. Knot this 3rd row about 3 finger-widths down.
Repeat step 4. Knot this 4th row about 2 finger-widths down. Gather and knot the ends together.
Trim your ends and hang.
Step 8: Experiment
Try using yarn, strips of fabric, tights, add beads. What else can you use?
