How to Make a DIY Plant Hanger

Step 1. Prepare the necessary materials for your DIY plant hanger.

Step 2. Gather the strings and make sure they are aligned. Then, make a loop at the end. It’s up to you how far the knot should be, but it would be nice if it’s at least 1 inch from the tip.

Step 3. Arrange the strings over the plant holder, placed the bottom side up. Spread them out in four directions, with two strings in each group. The knot should be in the middle.

Step 4. Start tying a knot from the edge of the plant holder. Then, make sure the other knots are at the same length to make it balanced.

Step 5. Next, flip the plant holder carefully. Take two strings from two groups that are near each other. Tie a knot at the middle. Do the same for the other groups. Again, make sure that they are about the same length. You can take out the rope/strings from the plant holder to better check the alignments of each knot.

Step 6. Then, put the rope back to the plant container and measure where you need to tie the next knot, based on what you did in Step 5. Repeat Step 5.

Step 7. Put the rope/string back on your plant container and arrange the strings. Then, make a big knot at the top, gathering all the strings together at the length that you want. Make a second knot at the top.

Step 8. Put your plant inside the pot and hang your DIY plant hanger. You’re done! Enjoy your plant.
