15-Minute DIY Macrame Plant Hangers
I'm not super crafty and I have a short attention span. So if I get into a DIY project, it has to be simple enough to do in 20 minutes with minimal artistic talent. This summer I've fallen in love with all things macrame! I'm probably a little late to jump on the macrame boat. But I think that's because I always assumed it would be really complicated and expensive to make. Not so!
I got started with it when I took a quick Macrame class on Skillshare. She told me exactly what to buy and how to do a few easy knots. I learned it in about 15 minutes and then created my first planter in even less time than that.
If you can tie your shoes, you can do macrame. I was shocked by how simple it is. After that first one, I immediately created 4 more. They're perfect for your porch, your office or to give away as gifts. I got everything from Menards and averaged about $6/planter.
Want to try it? Here's what you need...
- Rope (I used this 100 ft. 3/16 braided cotton rope)
- Hook (I used these S-hooks)
- Metal Ring (I used these, but a little larger would be even better)
- Plants! (Succulents and herbs for the win!)
- Optional Extras: Copper Couplings, Colored Dye,
Now just spend a few minutes watching some Youtube or Skillshare tutorials!
