We love these DIY hanging woven planters merely because we love any excuse to add greenery to our space! In neutral hues with pops of metallic gold, these baskets give a woven look without having to spending hours actually weaving them!
Rope (cotton rope)
1. After measuring out the amount of rope needed to cover your pot, begin wrapping your rope with raffia; adhering with hot glue under you’ve reached the end (the same method goes for wrapping the gold ribbon).
2. To add fringe to portions of your hanging: 1. cut desired length of yarn, 2. fold in half, 3. place the loop on top of the rope, 3. pull the legs of the yarn under the rope and through the loop at the top. 4. repeat as many times as needed for desired amounts of fringe.
3. Once you have completed the necessary wrapping and added desired fringe, begin wrapping the rope around the base of the pot in a secure fashion and adhering with glue as you go.
4. After you have finished wrapping, take your yarn needle and desired length of yarn for hanging and go under the top piece of rope. Repeat at the other side. Join the loose ends at the top and make a knot.
5. Add plant & hang with hook!
Aren’t these SO fun! We made them for a special baby shower and they looked so rad filled with lush greenery. You could wrap the rope with colored yarn or ribbon to add some color, or use wildflowers for a different look! Be sure to tag me @theshiftcreative so I can see your creations!
