I consider myself a pretty proficient DIYer, and I feel like I have done almost EVERYTHING! But one thing I only recently started dabbling in is Macramè. And I’m so glad I did! I knocked out a hanging macramè planter in about an hour! And not only is it fun, it’s also 100% easier than I expected it to be!
Now I want to make ALL THE THINGS.
SO FUN, right? And wouldn’t these macramè hanging planters be a great gift idea this holiday season?!
Macramè Hanging Planter Tutorial
Let’s start out with a few supplies, shall we?

Supplies for Macramè Hanging Planter
- 3mm Macramè cord (I chose mustard, but they have TONS of colors!)
- Brass Rings
- National Hardware Elephant Hooks
- Sewing scissors
- Planter pot
- A PLANT!
To make things easier for you, I decided to make a video showing this process because it’s a lot easier to show you how easy it is.. Otherwise, all you get is a series of pictures that look really complicated… like this:
Macramè Half Square Knot
Did you catch that?
Some of us learn best from pictures and text, and others by watching a demonstration through video. I’ve got you covered either way on this macramè hanging planter!
It’s so amazing that doing a simple Half Square Knot over and over again will get you this amazing spiral look! Wouldn’t you think it would be harder?
How to Hang your Planter
Nick and I love partnering with National Hardware, because their products are always high quality, and they have such a huge selection of useful products! We used these super durable Elephant Hooks to hang our macramè hanging planters. And not only were they sooooo easy to install, they also SWIVEL!! …which is a dream for crazy plant ladies like myself. We like to rotate our plants every so often so they get equal light all the way around. And these make it so easy!
And BOOM she’s in place! TIMES THREE!
I allllmost had Nick talked into letting me buy new plants (for these NEW PLANTERS #obviously), but the truth is, I had plenty to choose from just by ‘shopping my plant collection’.
Eek! I love how these macramè hanging planters turned out, and even have plans to make a more elaborate one for my new kitchen! I hope you have the confidence to give this a try… and if you do, be sure to take me on social! We’re @RealityDaydream on Instagram and Facebook!

Beautiful job on these, I need to make some! Thanks for sharing!
Wow. So much easier than it looks. Excellent pictures really help!
This is something I’ve been wanting to try for the last year…thanks for the push! Looks so good!
I cannot wait to try macrame out! This turned out so well and you tell me it’s easy so I am going to give it a shot next time I go to Hobby Lobby! Thanks girl for adding to my NEVER ending list of stuff to do! Lol!
I’ve tried a lot of things, but macrame is not one of them and I’ve been dying to try it! Your hanging planters look so pretty, especially the mustard color against your walls!

I feel so old! I did macrame in the 70’s. I barely remember the knots. I love how pretty your macrame plant holders turned out.
I did macrame in the 70s too. Lots of online tutorials to help you remember Try it, it’s like riding a bike!
I love these! I’ve really been wanting to try to make some but was overwhelmed. This looks so easy to follow. I didn’t see where you linked your plant containers? I’m assuming they have holes to drain but also catch the drips? Thank you!

Bethany you are adding to my hobby addiction! This is beautiful, I love the cord color contrast against the dark paint. I’m with you and I’ve never done macrame but guess I will be starting now.
I love Macrame! I have made many plant holders/hangers over the years! I started when I was a kid. It is fun to make your own things.
Bethany Sy says
YES! It is SO fun! I wish I had learned sooner. It always looked so intimidating to me.
