Crochet Plant Hanger Patterns roundup by Nana's Crafty Home

Get ready to bring handmade charm and botanical beauty into your home with these creative and easy-to-follow free crochet patterns.  Crochet plant hangers are versatile and functional accessories for your living space. 

Plant hangers are a fantastic solution for optimizing space, especially in smaller living areas. By hanging plants from the ceiling or walls you will free up floor and table space.

Why Crochet Plant Hangers?

Crochet plant hangers add a decorative element to any room. They create an eye-catching display that will showcase your favorite plants yet add a touch of your own individual creativity to your decor. Whether you choose boho-inspired macramé hangers or minimalist designs, plant hangers can complement various aesthetics and become an integral part of your overall home decor theme.

Hanging your plants near windows will allow you to take advantage of sunlight. You can position your plants to receive the best light exposure which will ensure they grow and thrive.

Mix and match crochet plant hanger styles, textures, yarn types and colors to add visual interest to your decor.

Hanging your plants from a crochet plant hanger can also make them more accessible for maintenance and care. Easily reach your plants for watering, pruning, or other plant care tasks.

Crochet plant hangers are an excellent addition to your home decor, bringing nature’s beauty indoors!

Yarn types to use for Plant Hangers

What kind of yarn should I use for my crochet plant hangers?  So many different options available!  You can go the faux macrame route and use a cord just like you would for macrame projects.  I found a great 3mm cord option (super bulky) from Amazon* that is pretty soft and didn’t kill my hands while using it.  

I recently made a crochet plant hanger with Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn which is a bulky tubular cotton blend option.  This is one of my personal favorites and is available through both Joann’s as well as online at Yarnspirations.  Perfect for all kinds of home decor projects!

Cotton yarn is a good option for plant hangers as cotton is very durable.  Many cotton blend yarns would be great options as well. Acrylic yarn could be used for plant hangers but it won’t be quite as durable as cotton. 

Lion Brand’s For the Home cording yarn is a cotton/polyester blend. A great option for a macrame look to your finished plant hanger.

Recycled T-shirt yarn would be another fantastic option! I have been eyeing some Fox Yarn colors on Amazon that I would love to try out. However, if you have a bunch of t-shirts that need to be up cycled check out Heart Hook Home’s tutorial on how to make your own t-shirt yarn.

Do you have a favorite yarn that you use for your crochet plant hangers?  I am always on the hunt for the perfect yarns for different projects and I love hearing from my readers!
