It no secret that trends always seem to recycle themselves. One of my favorite older trends is making a comeback – Macrame Plant Hangers! For those of you not familiar, macrame involves using cords, string, twine, or rope to create knotted patterns in various combinations. Rather than knitting, you just tie a few knots! These hanging planters are also great for small living spaces, since they don’t take up any wall or floor space.
Needless to say, macrame projects are a DIY’ers dream. They are so much fun, and they can range from easy to more intricate designs. They are also inexpensive, being that the materials are so simple!
