Weavey Studio : How to Make a Simple Macrame in 10 minute for beginner - Plant Hanger


4mm cotton cord (six pieces, each 4 feet long)


Pot and plant

Step 1: Cut your cords

Cut six pieces of 4mm cotton cord, each 4 feet long. Fold each piece in half and tie a knot at the top to create a loop. Hang the loops on a hook or dowel to keep them organized.

Step 2: Create the center knot

Take the two center cords and tie a knot about 6 inches from the top. This will create the center of your plant hanger.

Step 3: Create the square knots

Take one cord from each adjacent pair and tie a square knot (right over left, left over right) about 3 inches below the center knot. Repeat this process with the other adjacent pairs until you have three sets of square knots.

Step 4: Create the bottom knot

Take all six cords and tie a knot at the bottom, leaving about 6 inches of cord below the knot. This will create the base of your plant hanger.

Step 5: Create the hanging loops

Starting about 1 inch below the bottom knot, divide the cords into three pairs and tie a knot with each pair, leaving about 2 inches of cord below the knot. These knots will create the loops that your plant hanger will hang from.

Step 6: Finish your plant hanger

Trim the ends of the cords to your desired length and comb them out to create a fringe effect. Place your pot and plant into the hanger and adjust the knots as needed to keep it level.

Congratulations, you've just made a simple macrame plant hanger! You can experiment with different knotting techniques, cord types, and colors to create a unique and personalized plant hanger that reflects your style and personality.


- Be patient and take your time with each knot to ensure that your plant hanger is secure and balanced.

- Practice your knots on a small piece of cord before you start your project to get the hang of the technique.
