Make: DIY Macrame plant hanger from TMOD

Well I'm pretty sure you know how hot indoor plants are this year, and macrame is having a moment too; so I was pretty excited to receive this fun DIY macrame plant hanger kit by TMOD from the kind folks at Notemaker. Cute and fun!

I'm such a sucker for mint green. I'm working on my daughter's first real study space at the moment, and this planter will look amazing next to her new desk. And it was easy to make!

The kit comes in a cookie jar-style bowl with lid and contains everything you need to create the planter - rope, wooden beads, metal ring and instructions.

The macrame was fairly straightforward and fun. I've made simple macrame planters before, so had an idea of the methodology, but if you're a bit stuck, just search online for a macrame planter video and you'll be knotting like a pro in no time.

The glass bowl has no drainage, so suits a plant that doesn't require much water (like a succulent). I used this cool air plant Old Man's Beard (Tillandsia usneoides), also known as Spanish Moss, that looks great inside the see-through bowl too.

Looks great hanging in my daughter's bedroom too!

You can find the DIY macrame plant hanger kit in the Notemaker online store. Let me know if you give it a go; I'd love to see your pics.

  1. The plant hanger looks great! Have never thought about hanging a plant up inside the house but its a really good idea, looks effective and different to it just being on a table! Have pinned!
