These simple DIY makrame plant hangers have been a long time coming. I was itching to make them since I bought these two cute baskets for 1€ at a flea market the other day.
The baskets are super lightweight and just perfect to be hanging planters. I spray painted them white, they were a reddish brown before and white just fits in better. These plant hangers add such a cute boho vibe to the room, I am thinking of making more for the terrace when I find more baskets.
Simple DIY Macrame Plant Hangers

1.What I have used:
2 different sized baskets
7 wooden beads in total
Have you ever tried the macrame technique? There are so many different ways of knotting beautiful patterns and designs, Pinterest is full of them! I opted for a simple and easy way, probably not even real macrame, that also involves wooden beads. Below I’m explaining step by step, I hope you can get an overall idea.
The instructions show the smaller basket hanger and I used three bunches of 2 strings each [6 in total], so three beads for it. For the larger basket I used 4 bunches of 2 strings each [8 in total ] and 4 beads.
2. I cut yute twine into 6 1m long strings. I tied them in a big knot on the top.
3. Then separated them in to three bunches of two strings each and tied small knots of two strings each.
4. After, I added a bigger sized wooden bead to each one of the bunches of two strings. The previously tied knot keeps them in place.
5. Next, I grabbed my basket and turned it upside down to place the knotted strings with beads on top. The big knot will go in the center and I evened out the three beads on the bottom. You want to have the same spaces between them.
6. Now I started with my first knot, grabbing one string of two bunches each and knotting it in the middle more or less. Repeat with the rest of the two bunches of strings.
7. The next knot round is ready to be made, again just like in step 6
8. I grabbed the big knot I made at the very beginning, holding the basket with my other hand and turned the whole thing around. I stretched out the twine a bit simply by pulling on both ends and arranged the basket and plant inside it.
When your hanger is actually hanging in it’s spot, you can still arrange the twine a bit and pull it in place.
I decided to hang it on my farmhouse ladder, so the hangers ended up being way shorter. But I didn’t want to cut the twine, in case I end up changing their spots one day. So I twisted the long tops of twine just around each other as you can see below, and then tucked the ends into the planters. I don’t know if I am making any sense… 😉 I hope so.
Pin this to save it for later! Thanks!
