Adorn your cozy interiors with 30 hand-woven DIY art and hanging plants.
Are you a DIY home decorator, plant lover, or flower lover? We got you!
Macramé plant hangers are the perfect little touch to accent your cozy, designer home. Macramé—the art of knotting made popular in the seventies—is now on a revival, bringing trendy boho vibes into your living room, bedroom, and more. And there’s simply no better way to display your hanging plants than stringing them up in handmade woven knots.
Whether you’re a novice or seasoned knotter, Macramé Plant Hangers provides thirty quirky yet stunning projects that will spark your DIY artist’s imagination and get you creating. Follow detailed photographs and instructions to construct patterns with various natural fibers, including cotton rope, felted wool, silk ribbon, jute, recycled fabric, and more. There are knotted projects suitable for bigger eight-inch pots, small four-inch pots, vintage bottles, and even air plants.
Including a practical beginner’s section of knot basics; an introduction to weaving; customizable variations to add playful beads, funky fringes, and chic rope tassels to your macramé design for “whimsy;” and a bonus chapter on special projects that mix macramé with a dash of weaving and earthy elements, Macramé Plant Hangers is your handy guidebook to adorning interiors with your own custom hand-knotted, vintage art you can be proud of—while keeping it green!
