Double Macrame Shelf Pattern – 2 tier

Double macrame hanging shelf

Why not save on space and make a double hanging shelf plant holder? I just can’t get enough of these gorgeous real wood log slices so I put two together and make this 2 tier macrame hanging shelf. They have been a great hit for those looking for rustic boho decor additions to their home, a great touch to a living room or bedroom.

Now I am bringing you the tutorial on how to make these bad boys. If you haven’t done many macrame projects before, don’t worry, the tutorial will take you through every knot you need to know how to make this. Although it is larger than most other basic macrame patterns for beginners, it doesn’t include any difficult advance knots so it is easy to make this simple pattern.

Along with the last macrame shelf design that I posted, this also suspends from the ceiling. They’re easy to hang but if you are not sure and want me to show different ways to hang them and how to securely attach them so they can bear weight of multiple plant pots drop me a comment here or on my Youtube Channel and I can make a short video on this.
