Fiber wall hangings and macrame are back! I’ve got a simple way for you to bring that retro flavor to your home with these simple DIY Beaded Plant Hangers. I made a pair of these for my girl’s new bedroom that was featured in Real Families this month.
Plants are such an easy way to bring life to any space. And if you have a small space with limited surfaces or you just want to keep them up and away from curious toddlers, hanging them from the ceiling can be a great option.
I made a couple different versions of this. One was my daughter, Denali’s idea, she painted the beads on the yellow pot ombre pink to mimic the colors on the Graduated Bookcases we have in the room. And then I painted the others metallic gold and mixed round and geometric beads (like the ones used in this DIY).
2. Fold all 5 of the pieces of twine in half and tie a knot at right in the middle. This will be the top for hanging the plant from. I found it was helpful to hang the twine from a door knob and work with gavity to do the next steps, but you could also work on a flat surface.
3. Starting about 2/3s down the length of the twine and thread 5 beads onto the pairs of the twine.
I also made a version with neon pink cording and natural beads.
