13. Square Knot Beginner Macrame Plant Hanger
If you’re new to macrame and want to start with an easy project, this is a great project. You won’t need many materials to get started and will have step-by-step instructions from Rachel Colton.
Rachel is a natural teacher who has an amazingly popular video that shows you how to make this planter in less than 20 minutes – probably a bit longer if this is your first project.
And you won’t need many supplies to get started on this project – just a few basic items that you’ve already seen on this list and likely have stashed away somewhere already. You’ll need just some wooden hoops, and if you haven’t purchased them already, we’ll leave a link to a great deal on Amazon below.
You’ll need a fair bit of cord (in the realm of around 100 feet), but to be safe, buy a larger cord. If you have 30 yards of some leftover cord, that will more than suffice.
14. DIY Wall-hanging Plant Hanger
Chic and classy is a great way to describe this plant hanger. You can put a small mason jar inside of it with a beautiful green plant and hang it on the door or from anywhere you like.

You can follow along with Olga – the owner of the channel – as she walks you through this simple design. Check out the video for yourself:
Olga doesn’t speak in the video, so this is a great option for visual learners who don’t need a crazy amount of instruction. You will need quite a few supplies to get started:
15. Macrame Plant Hanger with Beads
Here’s a cute and simple plant hanger that features chunky square knots, wooden beads and a fun design.
You’ll need to know a few knots for this project, including the wrapped knot and square knot sennits.
The tutorial explains each step in great detail, so you’ll have no problem following it as a beginner. Just have some patience, as those square knot sennits can take some time to make.
We also recommend making sure that you have somewhere to hang your rope while you’re working. An adhesive hook on the wall will work, or you can actually work off of the hook you’ll use to hang your plant if you’re hanging it on your wall.
Macrame plant hangers are a cute addition to any space and showcase the power of creativity. Even beginners can make their own planter in just an afternoon, and they’ll look amazing.
