Learn how to make this easy fishnet hanging planter from garden or butcher's twine for all your indoor plants.
When you start to have a lot of indoor plants or just a small living space eventually you will want to hang more places to take advantage of the space.
This is obviously a good idea for vining plants and today I wanted to share some simple ideas of how to make a fishnet hanging planter out of twine.
I showed something similar when I created the hanging teacup planter a while back. However, these are more detailed and just as easy.

How to Make a Fishnet Hanging Planter
Start by turning your pot upside down. If you want to create a hanger for a pot that already has a plant in it, see if you can find an empty pot or can that is a similar size. You can reverse the process but it may be a little difficult if this is new to you.
Take a small piece of twine and make a circle large enough to fit in the inside edge of the bottom of your pot.
Cut eight pieces of twine for the sides about 6 yards each and fold them in half.
Slip the folded end of one of the pieces of twine under the circle and then thread the ends over the circle and through the fold to create a knot onto the circle.
Next, continue around with each piece evenly spaced until you have 8 knots on the top and 16 pieces of twine coming down the sides.
Start making overhand knots about 1 - 1.5 inches down the pot. The twine is in 8 pairs. Start with the right piece on one pair and the left piece on the pair to the right and make an overhand knot.
Then move on to the next two pieces of twine to your right. Tie another overhand knot at about the same length. Continue around the pot.
For the next row continue creating overhand knots about 1- 1.5 inches below the first row.
You will see a pattern that looks like a fishnet emerging. Continue making rows of overhand knots until you reach the top of the pot.
Making Square Knots on the Sides
Once you get to the top of the pot you can be finished. However, you can also make some square knots on the sides as shown below.
You will need four pieces of twine that will create four square knot sections at whatever place you want them to be on the hanger. Since this hanger already has 16 pieces then you can make 4 sides with square knots.
Above are the steps for the square knots. If you want to watch it here's a video that may be helpful.
You can make as many square knots you like.
Finish by tying all the twine together in a knot and slipping on an S-hook for hanging.
This technique works great with butcher's twine (gray pot on the left) as well.
An easy, affordable and decorative way to hang all your precious plants.
