Easy DIY Makrame Plant Stand

What I’ve used:

~ large terracotta flower pot [I painted mine white]

~ yute rope

~ white terracotta plate for the top [not shown on this picture, but below]

~ scissors & hot glue

This terracotta flower pot is from last summer and I acutally used it for our Christmas tree in the winter time as well! Turned around, I wrapped yute rope around the top and put some hot glue on a few spots to keep it in place.

Then I cut 7 strings of rope about 4 times the lenght of the hight of the flower pot. I folded them in half and created a loop over the top string on the pot. Taking the two ends, I pulled them through the loop and pulled the knot tight [see below]. I repeated this with the remaining 6 strings.

I grabbed two lengths of twine and tied them together and continued all the way around the first row. Then started again with the second row and repeated all the way to the bottom of the pot.

At the end, I turned the pot around and pulled each string tight into the open top [which will be the bottom because I turned the pot upside down] and secured it with hot glue inside the pot. easy diy makrame plant stand kreativk.net

After, I put the terracotta plate on top also using some hot glue to keep it from moving around. Both pieces are terracotta, so they are pretty heavy or at least heavy enough and don’t easily fall over.

I’m using it beside my pallets as a little plant stand/ coffee cup side table right now. This spot is lovely this time of year, not too hot but nice and sunny, perfect for a coffee break!

    I love the Macrame and it looks like a fishing net perfect for your coastal theme Katrin

    Macrame cord is very hard to find or even jute. I use to make all sorts of things out of macrame. Love this simple pattern it reminds me of herringbone. I am really looking forward to seeing your home tour tomorrow.

      I didn’t know there was special makrame cord, will have to look for it, but I can imagine here in Spain it’s even harder to find, if you say so and you’re in Canada… I would like to give some other knots a go, will see when I get the time for it! Thanks friend, hope you’re doing alright…

    Very cool Katrin, it reminds me of the 70’s. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story, and have a great weekend.

    Katrin, this is such a fun idea!! I like the look of the makrame over the pot. It gives such a coastal and rustic feel to the area. This makrame would be a fun way to dress up so many things, kinda like stencils. 😉 It looks wonderful Katrin, great idea!!

      I know hey? A lot of fun and easy to add a little nautical touch to any decor!! Thanks Keri!

    What a lovely idea. I haven’t done macrame in so long. I think it looks like a fishing net, The texture is great and how can you not love terra cotta pots.

    • Katrin

      It is more of a fishnet than real makrame I guess… I haven’t tried the real makrame knots, they look really beautiful!! Thanks Debra!

    What a great idea Katrin, it looks so nice! It has a nautical vibe too which I love. Last week we had strong winds and one of my terracotta pots broke so I am thinking I could use some hot glue to attach the side and then wrap it in macrame to make it stronger and nicer. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Karin, have you taken the ferry to Morocco yet from Spain? I never have and I don’t think my husband would want to do that but I bet you and I could get into trouble there shopping? I love the BOHO Moroccan look. Great job!

      LOL Christine, that would be fun!!! But hey, my hubby doesn’t want to go with his three blondies either… lol! Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the look of this patio table ! I especially think the twine webbing is awesome! Looks like a fishing net! The distressing really makes it perfect! Awesome table!

    Oh my Katrin, did those knots bring back memories of my macrame days in the 70’s. I love how you incorporated the twine and terracotta pots into a fabulous outdoor table. Very clever and cute idea!

    LOL, Katrin we both used terracotta pots and rope to create two totally different outdoor projects. That’s so freaky cool 😉 I love your macrame side table though. I adds such a lovely beachy, coastal vibe to the patio and it’s the perfect height next to the pallet sofa too. Isn’t it great that macrame is coming back? My mom used to make these elaborate wall hangings when we were small. I think I need her to show me the ropes so I can play around 😉

      Ha, I saw yours and love it, sooo cute!! I love the simple makrame, but also want to try out the tricky kind… we’ll see! Perfect for summer I think but also cozy for your fall 🙂

    Katrin what a pretty idea for your plant stand. I love the idea of the repurpose of the pot and dish to make a plant stand or side table. But adding the macrame was so clever. It is much more fun and whimsical now with the added jute. I see you’re all ready for outdoor living. My balcony is a fine mess. I still haven’t cleaned up from the winter.

      Thanks Mary!! I’m not done outside either… just this little spot in front of the door, to have a little break while doing all the rest of the cleaning, lol!!
