6 Ways To Hang Your Plant Hanger

Macrame plant hangers are definitely back and here to stay and why wouldn't they be?! they're gorgeous and they offer space-saving ways of bringing more plants into our homes, which in itself is soooo good for us. My macrame plant hangers, made from British manufactured recycled cotton cord, are proving to be very popular in my floating shop but one comment that is sometimes made is "I love them but where would I hang it?". Being a huge indoor plant lover myself, the answer to this question is easy and here you'll find my top 6 ways to hang your macrame plant hanger.


  1. Add a hook straight into the ceiling.


This is the simplest way of hanging your plant hanger. Some may find this scary but with the right tools, it couldn't be simpler. Don't be scared of drilling into your walls or ceilings. If you don't get it right the first time, there's nothing a bit of polly filler won't fix.



2. Use a bracket.


Brackets are a great way of adding extra detail to your macrame hanger and they're really easy to install. There are so many designs available from high street shops, garden centres and online market places like Etsy, you'll be spoilt for choice.


3. Coat rack


Just because an item is designed for one purpose doesn't mean you can't use it for another. Try your macrame plant hanger on your coat rack to add interest to those otherwise mundane areas in your home.


4. Curtain Poles.


Curtain poles!. Of course! Something you've probably already got hanging in your home. Simply grab yourself some S-hooks or thread directly onto the pole and enjoy.


5. Clothes rail.

Again, why do rails only have to be for clothes? Make a feature and hang multiple plants from your rail. Gorgeous!


6. Get creative

If only I had the space on my narrowboat, this is exactly what I would do. Get creative and think outside the box when it comes to hanging your plants. Get an old ladder and hang it from the ceiling in your bathroom where your plants will thrive from the humid atmosphere or forage a branch and add it to your decor.


As you can see, there are no limits to how you can hang your plants. So the next time you're passing my floating shop and you fall in love with one of my hangers, don't talk yourself out of what will be a very rewarding gift to yourself because you "have nowhere to hang it". With a little creative thinking, you can hang it anywhere.
