It took almost a week but I am finally finished.

I had promised several people months ago that I would create a pattern for my wine Macrame Plant Hanger.

Then beading got in the way. 😀

The main reason it took so long was that I couldn’t find my written notes on the first one I made.

That’s why I had to remake it. From scratch. And document each step. And take photos of each step.

Stopping to take photos really slowed me down. I don’t trust my photo-taking. More times than not, the picture is unusable, blurry. So I ALWAYS take two shots. I bet I weeded through about 800 photos trying to select the best ones.

But… it’s done.

To those who posted a comment here asking for the pattern or sent me an e-mail, you can get it now at Etsy. Thanks much!!

Wine Macrame Plant Hanger, My Original Design

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.

Now what!!??

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.

And what are baskets for? To fill up!!

How about this for a child’s room? Fill it with stuffed animals.
