MAKE A HANGING MACRAME PLANTER IN UNDER AN HOUR

This video just got over 100,000 views on Youtube. Whoop! So I thought I’d post it again…

This week we’ve been having a 70s love-in and it wouldn’t be complete without a macrame planter, although I’m hesitant to use the word ‘macrame’ because it’s really just tying a few simple knots, nothing fancy.

I chose to pot my succulent in a small glass vase because it had a lovely spherical shape. The lady in the shop warned me that the lack of drainage might be a problem further down the line, so the plant would need re-potting with new soil every three months. But to be honest, my track record with house plants is extremely poor, so I expect to replace it anyway. (If only they were like children and shouted “Muuum, I’m huungry!” then I wouldn’t have a problem!)

Watch the video to see how I did it – it’s very quick to do. Instructions below…
