DIY Woven Macrame Planter Wall Hanger

I used to discover a lot of DIY ideas on Pinterest, but now I find myself saving a lot of pictures from Instagram! One of these DIY inspirations came from Nalani of @knottybloom, who sells these beautiful macrame plant hangers on Etsy! I wanted to try my hand at macrame, so I decided to attempt one of my own, and I think it came out pretty good!

I have quite a few succulents, so for this hanger, I decided it would hold a vase - motivating me to buy fresh flowers regularly! As for the project itself, I think the trickiest part was making sure it fit perfectly to my vase. The knotting itself was quite simple - I only used two different macrame knots, both of which are very easy!

Andre had a beautiful succulent garden, and I ended up going home with new project ideas and succulent wisdom, in addition to the 11 succulents I bought from him.

But what to do with them? After finding 2 stemless wine glasses, perfect for little terrariums, at Goodwill for 50 cents, I decided to copy one of Brit + Co's hanging succulent projects, where the terrarium hangs from a homemade net. I'm really pleased with how it turned out - it's really easy, and makes our living room look a little more grown-up!
