DIY Hanging Planters


Macrame cord
Plant pot
Permanent markers
Spray bottle
Rubbing alcohol


1. Cut four 10 ft. strings of cord and fold them in half.
2. Tie a knot at the fold.
3. Divide the strings in half, so you have 2 groups of 4 strings.
4. Tie the outer strings around the 2 inner strings to make a twisted knot pattern. Continue until it is about 4 inches long. Repeat with the other 4 strings.
5. Group the string in pairs and tie 4 knots about 10 inches from the end of the twist knots.
6. Pull one string from separate knots and knot them together to make an interwoven zig zag pattern. Repeat with all strings. You’ll want to hold up your plant pot next to the knots to decide how far down to tie them.
7. Make one more zig zag knot set.
8. Tie a large knot with all of the strings at the bottom.
9. Cut the hanging strings to a similar length. Fray and knot each string end.
10. Color the strings with permanents markers and spray with rubbing alcohol.
