Macrame plant holder





Quite a while back I came across this tutorial on how to make a simple macramé plant hanger so I decided to take a stab at it. I found some rope at Hobby Lobby in their fabric clearance bin and also found the little pot on clearance there.  You know who else has an awesome clearance section?  Lowe's plant section.  The little plant I got was $1.00!!!  It was droopy when I brought it home and perked right up after I watered it.  But the plant hanger was super easy to make  and I can see why people have little colonies of macramé plant hangers in their house. And excuse the horrible phone pics.  I was not going to bring my big camera into work... 
 
 
I hadn't measured the pot my plant came in before and of course it didn't fit into the blue pot so I had to transplant it into the green one that I got for $1.50 at Wal-Mart. I picked green since it kind of blends in with the plant.  It's a self watering pot so it can just pull it up to add water to the bottom of the tray.   

I used some scrap fabric to bind the top near the hanging ring and around the bottom to support the pot. 

 
 
My little plant is doing great there by the window.  I did the painting in the center and the one to the right.  I really don't like the one on the right and I am trying to think of something different to paint.

That hanging pot does look fun. It doesn't look like it would be all that hard to make, either. I don't have any plants in my office at work, but I bet it would liven up the place. Maybe I should make one of these. It would probably be best if I found a really hardy plant, though, since I am a beginner when it comes to that stuff. http://www.macramemagic.com/Basic-Macrame-Plant-Hangers

Seems like that tutorial on making one of these macrame pot holders really paid off. That turned out really well and fits perfectly to your plant pot. Plus, it is even better that you gave that plant that you got for a dollar a whole new life and made it healthy again. That is really cool that you could do so much for a little plant with something so simple as that.
