I don’t know two crafting trends that are more popular right now than succulents and macrame. I’m mixing the two together with this super easy macrame plant hanger that can be crafted in just minutes! I decided to use an artificial succulent because I’m terrible at keeping real plants alive but using real succulents is definitely an option if you’re a better gardener than I am. In fact, there are so many different ways you can customize this project including swapping out the cement planter for a terra cotta pot or choosing jute string for more of a natural look. Regardless of the changes you do or do not make to your easy macrame plant hanger, I can guarantee that you’re going to love hanging this piece where you can see it all the time!

Step 3. Begin by grabbing two of the same colored cords and tie a knot about 8″ down from the key ring. If you’re choosing to use succulents that are bigger than the ones I used, you may need your knots to be lower to give the added height more room.
Step 5. Add another set of knots about 4″ down from the first ones but this time, pull one cord from each set. You should have two different colors for each knot. Finish by tying the first ribbon to the last ribbon to make a tube shape.
Step 10. Your easy macrame plant hanger is complete! I used mug hooks to hang mine from the side of a window but there are tons of ways to show off your super cute new mini planter.
Feeling creative and want to customize this a bit? Why not try different strings or add some color to the cement planter with paint! Remember, if you’re blessed with a green thumb, you can also adapt this tutorial to use with real succulents.
