Well, I promised a post on macrame.  Since I ended up NOT doing this with my plant hangers (I ended up just knotting the cords), I’ll just post a blog I found.  It’s ALL about macrame!  If you know nothing about it, go ahead and start on this page:


If you know a little, here’s a pretty basic plant hanger design I was going to use:


There are many, many (too many to list) resources out there (including some You Tube videos … my favorite) to list.  Just do a search and you will spend days looking through all there is to know (and learn) about macrame!

    We made plant hangers like that at Girl Scout camp (I believe it was, if not, Church camp) when I was a little girl. This year I made bracelets for the girls for Christmas. I don’t know if it would be considered macrame? I’ll try to post a pic on FB. Anyways, thanks for this post, I need some hanging ferns this year since I seem to be spending more time outdoors, I need a new habit to get over this old one, keep these idle hands busy.,

      You are most welcome! Nice bracelet! This was the first time I was going to attempt something since I was a teenager. I suppose it will have to wait. My poor brain can’t take much more stimulus! lol
