DIY | Neon Pot Plant Holder

Micaela Hoo recently shared a post on her blog of Dani showing us how to make your own neon pot plant holder. I discovered these beauties while visiting my local coffee shop and was eager to get my hands on one, however they where priced as $130 ! OUCH! I disappointedly nodded and turned away. So I found this instead! BOOM! 

1. First measure out 8 lengths of rope of equal size. The sizes may vary depending on how big your pot in, but I would say at least 45 inches (120cm).
2. Line up the ends of the 8 pieces and tie into one big knot around 6 inches (15cm) away from the end. Double knot it to be sure it’s secure.
3. Take two pieces at a time and tie them into a knot about 3 inches (8cm) above the base knot. Repeat with the next two pieces and so on until all 8 have been joined at least once and you have four knots.
4.  Split the pairs you just knotted together, tying each piece of rope to its neighbouring piece to create four new knots around 3 inches (8cm) away from the last set. (You can repeat this step if your pot or bowl needs more support). You will have made a kind of loose net.
5. Place your pot into the middle of the rope, with the base knot in the center of the pot/bowl.
6. Pull all of the pieces of rope together above the pot/bowl and adjust the loops around the bowl until the pot sits flat and securely when you lift it into the air.
7. Knot the rope above your pot (depending on the height of your plants) and tie off into a large knot. You can now hang your planter by tying the rope around a hook or beam. Ensure to knot securely – you don’t want it to fall down!

Or if you just wish to buy one you can find them here as well.
