DIY Macrame Plant Hangers - pot hangingMacrame plant hangers are very popular and trendy, this is a lovely way to display your potted plant(s). You could make yours for fractions less than what they're selling for. They are perfect to hang outside your home especially if you have limited space. This would also make a nice gift.


*The measurements are based on the pot in the photo, but I am going to add a different plant inside.

Total Time: 15-30 minutes

Yield: 1 plant hanger


  • macrame cord
  • key ring
  • scissors
  • ruler


  1. You will need 8 strands of rope (about 5 to 8 feet each depending on the length you want your plant hanger to hang - the longer the better since it's be easier to adjust shorter if needed).
  2. DIY Macrame Plant Hangers - cut 8 strands of macrame cord
  3. Depending how long of a rope tassel you want, you can knot (mine is at 5 inches) - this will be the bottom part of the hanger.
  4. DIY Macrame Plant Hangers - tie knot to form tassel
  5. Separate cords into 4 equal parts (2 strands each).
  6. DIY Macrame Plant Hangers - separate cords into 4 sets of 2

  7. Knot according to the base of your pot which mine measured 4" so the hanger will fit best. Knot the 2 strands each, total of 4.
  8. DIY Macrame Plant Hangers - tie knot the height of pot on each set of cords

These were all the rage in the 70s. I hope your post inspires a comeback!
