I decided to make a jute macramé plant hanger. I’ve got plenty of jute twine, so after I found my 50 cent pot, I only needed a few other items.

How to Make the Macrame Hanger

Making a Macrame Plant Hanger

  1. Cutting your twine for the length

    First, you need to decide how long you want your planter to hang. I decided to cut the twine at the length of 28 inches. With the knots, etc. that put mine at about 24 inches once it was all finished.
    So I cut six pieces of twine at 28 inches.Twine cut for hanger

  2. Tie off twine

    Next cut 2 pieces of twine at 6 inches.tie off twine

  3. Base of twine

    Make sure your 28′ twine is lined up evenly and gather it together. Take one 6″ twine and use it to tie together the 28′ pieces about 3-4″ from one of the ends.Tying off the end

  4. Groups of 2

    Separate your 6 long twine pieces into groups of 2. So you’ll have 3 groups, each with 2 of the long pieces of twine.3 groups of twine

  5. Tying Knots

    Now you’ll be tying a knot on each of those doubled sets of twine. I made mine about 4 inches from the base knot. You want to have each of the 3 knots about the same distance from the base knot.Knotted twine pieces

  6. Drilling the Beads

    Now if your bead hole isn’t large enough to slide 2 pieces of twine through, then you’ll need to drill the hole a little larger. Make sure to use a drill bit just slightly larger than the existing opening.Enlarging the bead hole

  7. Bead Time

    Right now you have your 3 sets of twine that are grouped and knotted together. Now it’s time to separate them. You are going to take 1 twine rope from one set and grab one twine from the next set over. Take one of the beads and slide it over those 2 twine pieces. You can place tape on the ends of the twine to help slide the twine through the beads. Repeat this process, going in a circular pattern until 3 beads have been threaded three sets of twine.Adding the beads to the twine.

  8. Potting

    Place your terracotta pot in the center of your twine pieces, spreading the twine pieces evenly around the pot.Add pot to macrame hanger

  9. Wood Ring

    Now you can decide how long you want your planter to hang. Take the ends of all the twine pieces and put them through the wood ring from the back of the ring. Take the twine pieces and lay them flat, so it’s folding down. Take the other 6″ piece of twine and tie it off. You can trim any excess twine at this point.Adding wooden ring

Now you get the fun of filling your new cute hanging pot. This was such a fun craft! I now want to create a bunch in different sizes. I think this would make such a fun feature wall!

How to Make a Twine Macrame Plant Hanger


  1. Macrame…..been many, many, many years since I tired a half knot twist or a square knot. Used to love spending my off time as a teen making all sorts of things. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love how your macrame plant hanger turned out. Back in the day, I used to make elaborate hangers. I don’t remember a thing about the knots etc.
    Your simple plant hanger is similar to a couple I made out of cord for my patio. Once my plants bloom, you can’t even see the hanger anyway!!!
