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.
If you enjoyed this post, try these too:
If you’re interested in learning more knots, I’ve run workshops in the past, and would be happy to do it again. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join a workshop, or sign up for my newsletter to find out about other workshops happening.
