Supplies You’ll Need to Make this DIY Air Plant Holder
- 4mm single strand macrame cord in the following lengths
- 2 pieces @ 60″ long each
- 2″ wooden ring
- wooden bead with a large hole
- crochet hook that fits through the bead
- an Air Plant 🙂
DIY Macrame Air Plant Holder Tutorial
Step 1: Attach the Cords
Fold one of the pieces of cord in half and attach it to the bottom of the wooden ring with a lark’s head knot but don’t tighten it all the way.
Put one end of the second cord through the top of the lark’s head knot, even out the ends, and then tighten the knot. Now you’ll have both pieces of cord attached to the ring.
Step 2: Top Spiral Knot Section
Tie 12 spiral half knots starting right under the lark’s head knot and going downward.
Step 3: Make the Plant Cubby
Leave a space of about 3 or 4 inches for the air plant to sit, then tie 12 more spiral half knots under the space.
Step 4: Add the Bead
Thread the wooden bead onto all of the cords using your crochet hook or a large eye needle.
Step 5: Tie the Finishing Knot
Tie an overhand knot under the bead to secure.
Step 6: Trim Up the Fringe
Cut the fringe to your desired length.
This cute mini macrame air plant hanger is perfect to hold one individual plant.
If you want to hang several with one hanger, you can add extra length to your cord and make multiple cubby holes for your whole air plant collection!
