Not long ago, 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 D. is showing us how to make those DIY macramé plant hangers!
Creating the macramé hangers is surprisingly easy! Start with eight strings or cords. Cut them long enough so they will hang at your desired length.
Next, knot them over a metal loop for hanging.
Go down 1 to 3 inches from your first knots. Split the knotted groups in half. Combine each string with the string next to it and knot again, forming a diamond.
