DIY Macrame Plant Hanger
It's no secret that I love plants...my dream home is basically the Garfield Park Conservatory. I love being surrounded my greenery however in my small apartment I have run out of shelf space to put my plants. I would love to place some by my window but a certain cat will not allow that. I am left with one option...hanging plants! I saw a macrame plant hanger at urban outfitters which I loved but I did not love the price. I decided it was time to put my DIY hat on and learn to tie some knots. This is definitely the most difficult aspect of macrame but if I can do it I'm pretty sure anyone can.

- Macrame Cord
- Plant Pot
1. Cut your cord into 6 pieces. (I cut mine 55 inches long but next time if you want it to be longer try 75 inches) Tie a knot around 6 inches in and this will be the base of your plant hanger.
3. Tie each pair into a knot at the edge of the plant pot.
5. Tie the newly created adjacent pairs into knots.
7. Create spiral knots with each pair.
2. Pair off the pieces and place them at the base of the plant pot.
4. Lay the ropes down and separate the pieces to create adjacent pairs.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5, then slip onto plant pot.
8. Tie a knot about 10 inches up from the spiral knots. Create a square knot with the remaining cord pieces. This was probably be one of the more complicated knots but once you get the hang of it, it becomes simple.
9. Tie a knot at to finish your beautiful macrame creation. Admire your creation. Remove the pot from the hanger when you have a plant. Place a plant into the pot then carefully place the pot into the hanger.
