Ok, realy no one seems to macramé plant hangings these days, they seem to be incredibly outdated but we needed some quick and cheap extra space for our plants because it´s freezing, insanely cold outside, plus, out of toddler reach. I wanted something colorful yet not too much over the top which is why I cose dark red jute yarn for it (which comes out waaaaay too bright on the pic). I´d still love to cover it with red sparkling beads but I guess I´d have to knock dh unconscious before Grin.

Hahaha, a few weeks ago I was trying to talk the partner into being okay with me learning how to macrame in order to make us some cool plant holders... I like how yours turned out, it doesn't look too old gradma-ish, I think not using super thick yarn makes a big difference.

I’ll weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.
