DIY project: Macrame plant hanger

Resident crafter Catherine Therrien brings back the ’70s in style with a macrame plant hanger.

 

Made of cotton rope and finished with a turquoise leather cord, this piece has just enough nautical essence to suit any cottage decor.

Instructions
1 Gather the 4 pieces of rope together so the ends line up evenly. Fold in half (you’ll end up with 4' lengths). Loop the rope bundle through the ring to create a knot.

2 Measure 14" down and form a knot using 2 pieces of rope that are adjacent to each other. Repeat with the remaining 6 strands, creating 3 more knots.

3 Measure 16" down and form a knot using a strand from one grouping and a strand from the adjacent grouping to create a criss-cross pattern.

4 Measure 4" down and wrap the leather cord around the rope bundle multiple times as tightly as possible. Tie the ends together to secure.

5 Place a small potted plant in the hanger and suspend from the ceiling using a ceiling hook.
