I punked out and went super simple. Been a little crazy around hete with the kiddos. Teething for one, jealousy for the older. Ugh. So i went super simple because i wanted to get the philo up and in a window.

The blinds are closed for the picture.

I like it!
I prefer simple plant hangers that don't detract from the beauty and form of the plant.

Tiff!
That thing Rocks! Congratulations!
Wondering about what's holding it into your ceiling and
'after-water' weight, but it looks Fantastic.
Still want one.

Let me know where to send the check!

I like the simplicity as well. Its not as invasive as a knotted one would be and it doesnt take away from the plant, which is important. Maybe i will try differennt designs like this one.

Charlie... I love the name charlie by the way. It is hanging from a hook my FIL already had in the ceiling. The are in hung by every window in the house.

As far as watering, i think i will just leave the plant in the hanger and take the whole thing to the sink. Its what i do with the other 2 hanging plants i have.

As far as weight, i dont think i would hang a heavy plant from a hook. Once the plant gets too big i would put in a tall plant stand. Rather be on the safe side.

Thank you for all your kind words!!

Very simple, but nice. Overhand knots, I believe those are.

Oddly enough, I just made a macrame' garage door pull using blue baling twine and square knots. The electric garage door opener quit, and us shorter females here needed a way to reach the pull (made for tall people) that disengages the mechanism, making the door manual.

A nice plant hanger, to be sure! The plant stands out! :-)

RE: First plant hanger

Very nice indeed! I love my plant hangers that I made. One is a bit longer than I wanted, but it works. I want to make a double hanging one, the pattern I have requires at least 300 yards! but I think I am going to tone it down when I do it.

But congrats on your first baby! They are always the most special-- :)
