Back in the 1970s, macrame was all the rage. Mom loved crafts and this one was a challenge that she couldn’t resist.
You can see a fairly simple macrame tutorial in this YouTube video Easy Macrame Plant Hanger. Keep in mind, that this is the easy one. Now, I didn’t inherit all my mother’s craft genes and lack the patience that she had, so this project doesn’t look very easy to me.
The plant hangers that Mom made were quite a bit more elaborate. Amazingly, one of her creations is still in use 40 years later. My friend, Janet, has it hanging in her house with a healthy plant cradled in it.
I can’t imagine how many hours it took to make such a long hanger with such a variety of knots.
