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.
