DIY Plant hanger

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Hey everyone! I've been storing this post unintentionally, I actually thought I lost these pictures but unexpectedly found them!  Long ago, I got really stubborn about making my own plant hangers.  I have a garden on my apartment (which is great) but I feel like this just adds a little extra something to the entire indoor space. Plant hangers can be a little bit expensive and they don't look hard to make at all so I decided to give it a try and share with all of you the steps that I followed. Keep in mind that I used a smaller rope in order to explain this, it was easier to photograph, so remember yours should look way way waaay longer.
So, you'll basically need:
  • A bucket or pot
  • Pair of scissors
  • Lots of rope
  • Plants (obviously)
  • Your precious time and patience 

The first thing you need to do is calculate how much rope you're going to need.  So measure up how high you'd like the plant to hang.  I'll share the ones I used as reference.
Fold 4 12' strands of cord or rope in half loop the cord and tie a knot. Cut off the ends.

This is how it should look like after you've followed these steps (only longer)
Divide the cords/rope into 4 pairs.
Take the left cord from each set and tie it with a knot to the right string of the set you have on your left.
Repeat this until you've reached the sizing you desired.  I recommend checking on this by trying to put the pot/bucket inside the net you made.
Hopefully once you're done, it will look something like this.
If you have any questions feel free to leave them down below, I'll be happy to help out!
