Easy DIY Macrame Plant Holder

This isn’t your grandma’s macrame. Okay, maybe it is, but everything makes a comeback at some point or another right? I just love the clean and textured look of this macrame plant holder. And the best part? It can be done in just a couple minutes! I’m all about easy crafts that can be done in a few minutes. Aren’t you? 🙂

This is a great project to use up extra yarn scraps or to make as gifts for friends and family. You can use real plants in your pot, or if you’re a plant killer like me, you can use a faux one. No watering? That’s right up my alley 😉 Now let’s get started!

Step 1

Cut 4 equal lengths of yarn. Mine were about 2 feet long – you want to make sure you have enough to finish your macrame plant holder! Depending on how large your planter is, you may need to make your yarn strands even longer.

Step 2

Fold your yarn strands in half, then loop the folded end through your ring. Take the loose ends and pull them through the loop of yarn you’ve created and pull taut.

Step 3

Separate the yarn into 4 groupings of 2 strands of yarn each.

Step 4

Measure out several inches (I just eyeballed it) and then tie each of the groupings together. Make sure the knots are all roughly the same length.

Step 5

Take the left strand from each grouping and tie it to the right strand of the grouping next to it. Tie the knots a little higher up, only an inch or two from the first set of knots. I know it sounds confusing, but I promise it’s not! Take the two outermost strands and tie them together, forming a sort off a circular net.

Step 6

Tie one more round of knots, repeating the process of knotting the left strand of each grouping to the right strand of the next. Make the knots pretty close to the last round you did – this time only a half inch or two away.

Step 7

Tie all the yarn strands in a knot a little bit below the last round of knots you made – about an inch. Cut off the excess yarn to form a pretty tassel! That’s it! Just slip your planter into the macrame plant holder for a hanging beauty that will bring style to any place you put it!

I’m gonna let you guys in on a little secret. The only way I could photograph this macrame plant holder by myself was to attach it to a cat toy and dangle it out in front of my camera. I bet you can imagine how silly that looked! And of course said cat toy attracted the cat, Mumford, who thought this little plant holder was the most interesting thing in the world! 😉

All in all, this was a super easy project that took only minutes! If you are more of an video learner and the pictures look confusing, I also made a little clip to give you another look!
