Macrame hanging plant

In my last post I showed you my felt succulent plant pot and that I was making it for something else. Well, it was because I spotted this macrame set in Hobbycraft!

I’ve done bits of macrame before but this is a set for those looking for some more intermediate challenges. The set comes with a large bundle of macrame cord and four wooden beads, you have to provide the vase yourself.

The first new thing I learnt was a gathering knot to connect the cords to the ring.

After that it’s a series of spiral knots, square knots, and normal knots.

The tutorial said to split the cords evenly, but I find that when doing macrame the center cords don’t get used as much as the left and right, or working, cords. So I split the cords 2/3rds instead.

Once the size of the vase is measured, tie a huge knot below it and insert the vase. And done! I don’t have a dedicated place to hang this yet as I’m still deciding where to put a ceiling hook in, so it is staying on my door handle for now.

I also used some of the leftover cord to make small macrame charms with some extra wooden rings. These can be attached to clips.
