Macramé Plant Hanger

I have long admired macramé plant hangers on Instagram and Pinterest, but have to confess I have been a little nervous to try it out solo, as I had heard that macramé was quite difficult to grasp.  I even bought some macramé yarn back in October, but it got put away as I was busy making lots of Christmas gifts, including the Dresden quilt for my parents. 

There is nothing like a new year and a new venture though, to inspire you to push yourself – and I am so pleased that I did.  I spent a lovely Sunday morning a few weeks ago learning some basic macramé knots (square knots and spiral square knots) and jumped in to make my first plant hanger.  I loosely used a couple of tutorials and put my own spin on it, and am delighted with the result. 

I hung the piece from the back of my bedroom door to work on and it worked really well.  I was a little short for the first section so stood on a kids stool for a while.  Once I got the hang of the knots it was fairly straightforward, and I am so pleased I finally tried this wonderful craft. 

I am excited to try some other plant hangers but I also have some jewellery and other pieces in mind.  Watch this space!
