Every once in a while I get an itching to macrame something. I recently received an order for two macrame plant hangers. Once they were finished I decided to make another one. Something different.
No particular idea in mind. I just cut the cord and got going. I like a wrapped hanging ring, it looks nicer, more polished. So, that part was easy. I also like the look of crown knots though they are not high up on my Love to Tie list. OK, that part was done.
Rest of the design was determined by which cords were the longest. I switched up, making sure to even out the cord lengths as I tied.
The best part about this plant hanger is its versatility. The many ways to use it. As you can see from my photos.
With a basket filled with greenery sitting on the glass.
Same as the above BUT with silk greenery stems stuck in the center above it.
Just the basket and plant.
A huge plastic container that plants come in from the stores. The cradle holds a nice sized pot.
Just a basket.
And what are baskets for? To fill up!!
How about this for a child’s room? Fill it with stuffed animals.
Thanks for looking at my original creation.
