The Best Macramé Planters You Can Buy or DIY

Plants and macramé go together like white fur blankets and Scandinavian homes. With the reemergence of Boho and trending #plantlady tags, it’s only natural that macramé plant hangers are popping up everywhere. They were big in 2018 and we predict they aren’t go away anytime soon.

Macramé is such a beautiful craft that can be the perfect finishing detail to a room and we’ll kickstart your hunt with some of our favorite DIYs and buys.

Amazon has several adorable options like the cutie pictured above I’m dubbing the “plant baby sling,” a macrame suspended table to create an entire floating vignette, and even a four-pack, hanging set that should be renamed “the plant lady starter kit.”

Molly wanted the macramé look but felt daunted by all the different knots. So instead, she cleverly used wooden beads and pared her DIY plant hanger down to just three knots.

Flber’s plant hammock uses wooden beads to incorporate layered texture. This cozy design almost feels like you’re tucking in your plants for a long winter indoors. And, if that helix design to the far right is catching your eye, it’s also in the same listing.

This DIY is great for macramé beginners. Alexis of Persia Lou demonstrates how to use just two basic knots (square and wrapped) to build strength and visual interest around a pot. The touch of brass beautifully sets off the planter’s robin’s egg blue color as well.

Nalani is a New Zealand-based artist that explores the interplay of different knot types and how they can create positive and negative space in her pieces. Her “Diamond Duo” plant hanger is a gorgeous example of that.

Ochre and terracotta hues are having a moment right now. The earthy colors instantly bring warmth to a space. They also work beautifully in contrast to the pale rope in Free Fille’s hanger. We love this modern take on a classic craft.

Hello tassels! There is nothing shy about this hanger from Baba Souk. Nestle your favorite plant right in there to create a living statement piece.

The best word for MAJAMI studio’s macramé would be “dramatic.” All of their work, from a flower wall macrame tapestry to a GIANT Macrame Plant Hanger that’s almost eight feet tall, are rich in weight and color, and exude glamour.

The best part of going the DIY route is the ability to customize any and everything. Charlene is a textile designer that actually specializes in macramé. She recommends her plant hanger DIY for anyone who wants to try out the art, but she also has more intricate pieces available for purchase too, just in case you’re not feeling crafty.

The tiny terracotta beads on this hanger from the Zen Succulent are calling to me. Look closely, as they’ve been incorporated into delicate flower knots.
