How To: DIY mini macramé hangers

In April, Melissa taught us how to make pinch pots out of Crayola air-dry clay. We pictured some of the finished pots nested in macramé hangers…which you attentive crafters immediately asked how to make. So today our talented designer Jessica Deiter is walking us through the process.

Creating the macramé hangers is surprisingly easy! Start with eight strings cut long enough to hang at your desired length.

Next, knot them over a metal loop for hanging.

Go down the length of the string to where you’d like your plant to sit.

Start by combining the strings into groups of two and knot each group.

Go down 1 to 3 inches from your first knots. Split the knotted groups in half and combine each string with string next to it to knot again, forming a diamond.

Repeat.

To make the rest for your bowl or planter, go down another 1 to 3 inches and knot all of the strings together. Trim hanging strings as necessary.

    I think the instructions should say to cut four pieces of string double your desired length, since your photo appears to show the strands looped over the ring.

    What kind of knot did you use to knot them over the metal hanger? I only see 3 strings over the metal hanger. Can you please elaborate????
