Assembling leaves:

Using your hook thread 4 finished leaves onto a piece of yarn approx 5 inches long, draw together and knot firmly.

Repeat with a second time with another 4 leaves leaving you with 2 groups of 4 leaves.

Now lay the first cluster on top of your pot…

…and the second on top of that staggering the tendrils evenly.

Making your macramé Hanger:

Cut 3×1m lengths of yarn or cord.

Image _7

Fold lengths in half at middle, knot all 3 together at the top making a loop approx 1inch tall. Stick to the table with tape before knotting.

Image _8

Split yarn into 3 pairs of 2 strands and knot each 1/3 of the way down.

Image _9

Next take 1 strand from each pair and knot it with one strand from its neighbour staggering pairs to begin forming a net.

Image _10

Repeat this splitting, staggering and knotting a third time.

Image _11

Finish your plant holder by knotting all 6 strands of yarn together, then pop on a bead and knot underneath to secure.

Image _12

Carefully open cord plant holder and place your pot in the centre adjusting placement of pot and leaf clusters so that there are 2/3 tendrils in between each section.
