Good morning! I've always wanted to get into weaving and macrame, and this simple tutorial made it much more approachable. Following that technique, I created a little hanger out of twine for one of my cacti! I'm hoping to add it to our office, so that it can give a little bit of a bohemian feel to the space.
I had previously made two of these guys for our living room, and still love them. They added something special to a very blank/boring corner. Macrame sounds and looks a lot harder than it actually is, and in my opinion, using twine makes it even easier. Check out the DIY below!
1. Measure out 8 strings of twine, about a yard long, depending on personal preference.
2. Tie the ends of all 8 strings together into one big knot, leaving a few inches to hang from the bottom.
3. Group your cords into 4 sets of 2 and tie a knot in each set, approximately 2 inches away
4. Now separate these sets into new sets of 2 and tie them together approximately 1.5 inches away
5. Repeat for a third time and tie each new set of cords together 1.5 inches away from the previous
6. Place your planter inside the hanger, and adjust accordingly. Then, tie all the strings in a knot at the top.
7. Hang and enjoy!
