This simple macrame plant hanger DIY is perfect for spring. This simple macrame plant hanger tutorial costs less than $2 and takes 15 minutes to make. Whip up several to put near every window in your home.
I love making these simple jute macrame plant hangers. I made a video on the “how-to” right at a year ago, but the video quality was a little less than desirable.
Since I was making up a few more for my laundry room redo and organization post I have been promising, I thought it would be a perfect time to revisit the subject.
In any room, I love to add natural textures and greenery to liven up the space and give it a cozy feel. There is something about adding live plants to rooms that brightens and refreshes rooms.
These DIY macrame plant hangers do just that.
Once you get the hang of it, you will be whipping out these babies left and right. They make excellent gifts!
The wonderful thing about these plant hangers, besides that they take almost no time and money, is that you can adjust the length to accommodate any size plant.

Supplies you will need:
- Something to hang your plant hanger on. I used a nail to create the project and then hung them from the ceiling using hooks.

How To Make A Macrame Plant Hanger Tutorial
- Start by cutting out nine pieces of jute twine to your desired length. If you don’t need the hanger to be extra long, and to accommodate an average size plant, start with 100″ pieces.
- Fold the strings in half, and tie a small string in the middle. When you hold the strings by that small string, you should end up with 18 pieces that are half the length you originally started with.
- Hang the project from a nail in the wall, so you can work with it more easily. (You could do this by taking a picture down, and working with the nail that was hanging it.) You can also work this project on a table. It is just a little easier when it is hanging.
- Divide the 18 strings into three sections with six strings each.
- Braid each section until you reach the desired length. For an extra long plant hanger this will be approximately 24″. For just an average length, braid about 14″.
- Tie a knot at the end of each braid.
- Next, go down from the braid knot about 6″(or less if you are making a tiny one). Divide the bottom of the braid in half, so that you have three pieces on each side. Join one braid to the next one over by tying three from each braid (six total) with a knot. Repeat in a circular fashion util all three braids are connected.
- Go down about another 6″ (or less if you are making a tiny one) and make another row of knots.
- Finally, go down a final 6″ and make one giant knot with all 18 pieces.
- Trim the strings.
Well….it got me thinking how beautiful these plant hangers would be with tiny succulents. Just make the braid lengths, and spaces between the knots, smaller to allow for such a small arrangement.
