Classic Macramé Plant Hanger with Wooden Beads

The traditional macramé plant holder is a classic for a reason. This simple design is an iconic macrame product that is the easiest thing to refer to when you want to explain to someone what macrame is. It is actually where my hobby for crafting macrame began as I needed somewhere to hang my indoor plants.

The design uses basic macramé knots so if you haven’t tired macramé before, this is a great project for a beginner learning macrame for the first time.
