It’s all about the DNA spiral twist!

This Glass Bowl Air Plant Hanger design is so appealing to me because I love the DNA spiral (otherwise known in macrame language as the half square knot). This design features a really thick spiral suspended from a wrapped ring, with a honeycomb hexagon shape opening – a real eye catcher.

I have to admit that I kind of accidentally stumbled across this design through experimenting with a few ideas I had in my mind to house a glass bowl in a plant hanger. I was mostly concerned about the glass bowl being in the hanger securely with the forward facing tilt feature. I’ve seen a fair few of pictures on Pinterest and Insta that may look nice for an photoshoot but don’t seem practical or secure enough because of how much open space there is the basket for the glass bowl to drop out if tampered with.

So by doing a few larks head knots to join the back to the front, I came up with this beautiful hexagon shaped opening which is just beautiful. I will share with you step by step how to make this beautiful, unique air plant hanger.

They are personally one of my favourite designs I created through just having fun experimenting with a custom order.

I was presented with 5 globe shaped coffee glasses and asked to make hangers to display her daughters air plants she so dearly cares for. I was given full creative freedom, my favourite type of custom order.

I came up with so many different ways of displaying the glass bowls in a unique design so they were facing outwards so the air plants can be seen in all their beauty and they can be removed in and out for their weekly pampering (a little soak in some water).

I hope your excited about these as much as I am.
