Another thing I got up to during my week long Making Friday was to make a hanging succulent garden in my studio. It all started with the impulse buy of a magnificent Burro’s Tail from Aspen Flowers in Loop Street, and next thing I was googling macrame tutorials on the internet. Just look at how well it turned out!
There are more complex versions that are fun to learn, but a great place to start is this super-simple one, and made from black cotton rope, it’s actually quite elegant. Here’s my tutorial for making your own hanging garden.
HANGING GARDEN TUTORIAL
After having made this tutorial, I got into learning proper macrame knots, and ended up making quite a few versions, in different colour rope, which have been really useful in a number of shoots, and in the Skinny laMinx shop too.
This classic version in white worked beautifully in the product shot for the Skinny laMinx Fronds fabric design.
