You've probably seen one at some point but never really thought about it, but what exactly is a macramé plant hanger? Macramé is a centuries-old artistic method of crafting a textile using several knots to form the basic shape or function of the desired piece you are looking to create. This technique is accessible as it only requires your hands and no other tools are necessary aside from the mounting ring that is used to keep everything in place.
Unique Macrame Plant Hangers
In most cases, macramé projects (including macramé plant hangers) are pieced together with several knots, but to be considered macramé, a piece usually should incorporate at least one knot as macramé can be collaborated with other techniques including weaving and knitting to create a variety of useful products and artistic projects. And let's face it, who doesn't like a bit of variation?!
Once you build up your knotting experience you can create your own patterns to create unique, one-of-a-kind textiles.
A popular macramé project is creating a macramé plant hanger. It's useful, enjoyable to make and it looks nifty!
A macramé plant hanger allows you to hang your potted plants or flowers in the air within your home or outside, keeping them off the ground and allowing you to put them in shaded areas of your choosing outdoors or inside around your home to add to the vibe of your decor.
