Materials For DIY Hanging Planters:
- Your favorite potted indoor plants like succulents or orchids
- 32 inches or 9.6 meters of colored string
- key hoop or ring
Step 1: Through The Loop
To start with, take the string and cut it into four separate pieces, each 240 cm or 8 feet long. Then, making sure the tops are aligned, let them through the hoop of the key ring.
You have now two sets of string doubled over right down in the middle by the key ring. And make sure the ends of the strings are also set to align.
Step 2: Tying Knots
Now, tie the set of strings into a knot just an inch from the key ring. Then lay them on a surface to separate into pairs.
With your string laid and paired, measure 15 cm or 5 inches from the first knot then tie. Do the same with the rest of the pair of strings.
Step 3: Crisscross Knots
Then from the first knot made from the pair of strings, measure again another 5 inches but this time pair two strings from a different set. And then tie.
Make the same measurement and do the same knot with another pair of strings from a different set again.
Step 4: Almost Done
Finally, tie the end of the strings into a knot that will finish off your hanging planter.
You can now carefully place your potted plant inside the formed net, adjusting the strings to support the potted plant.
