What is old is new again. Macramé hangers are trendy again and we will use our knot tying skills…or you will learn knot tying skills, to make a macramé hanger. These are perfect for your home, apartment or office as we will be making these in a neutral color. Once we have finished the hangers, you will select a small trailing plant and repot it into a plastic that will fit into your newly made hanger. You can watch it grow into a beautiful hanging plant in its new hanger.
