Step 1: Attach the Cords to the Ring

Line up all the cords together, fold them in half, and use a larks head knot to attach them to the binder ring.

Insert a T-Pin onto the corkboard and use that to hold your work while you make the mini macrame plant hanger.

Step 2: Make the Arms

Tie the first square knot | mini macrame plant hanger DIY

Separate out four strands of string, measure down about two inches and make your first square knot.

Thread the two center cords from the square knot into your large eye needle and add one of the wooden beads.

It takes a little wiggling to get the bead on but it shouldn’t be too hard. (If it is, your bead might be too small or your needle might be too big.)

tie another square knot below the bead

Tie a second square knot under the bead to hold it in place.

Repeat this process three more times. You’ll have four arms all together on your mini plant hanger.

Step 3: Connect the Arms

Connect the cords again an inch down

Measure down an inch and connect the arms again with another square knot.

Repeat three more times until all the arms are connected the same way.

Step 4: Finish with a Wrapping Knot

Test fit your plant into the plant hanger and decide where you need to tie the wrapping knot.

Tie it, trim the ends, and poke them under the wraps so they don’t show.
