Two Arm Macramé Plant Hanger – Air Plant Holder Pattern 4

Air Plant Glass Bowl Display, Plant Hangers, Tutorials

This Macramé Air Plant Hanger is a little different than your traditional macramé plant holder. Rather than coming down with three arms like a tripod with a basket underneath to support your plant pot, this design has only two arms.

The design uses basic macramé knots so if you haven’t tired macramé before, this is a great project for you to try. I really wanted a lot of variety in my collection of glass bowl air plant hangers and played about with this hanger for a while until I managed to get it secure enough with just two arms.
