I’ve made a number of these plant hangers, and each time I fail to document the process. As part of my New Year’s resolutions, I’ve finally managed to document the how-to. You can make this plant hanger with any type of beads you’d like – in this case, I’ve opted for copper tubing. The advantage of using “beads” instead of knots, is that the plant hanger becomes 100% adjustable to fit any size pot. Here’s how I did it.
What you need: rope, metal ring, scissors, 8 copper tubing pieces (mine is 1/2″ diameter).
Step 1: Cut four pieces of rope. Each piece should be twice as long as you want your plant hanger to hang (I did about 2 1/2 arm lengths). Pull rope midway through metal ring.
Step 2: Pull your rope tight and make 4-5 square knots. Tighten knots and separate into pairs.
Step 3: Place one copper tube on each pair of rope. Separate pairs and cross over each other. Place another copper tube on these new pairs.
Step 4: You should now have 8 copper tubes on your plant hanger. Move these upwards towards the ring. At the ends of your rope, tie into a knot. Be sure to tighten and trim excess rope.
Step 5: Place pot inside plant hanger (centered on knot), pull tight and adjust copper tubing. Enjoy!
