I created this simple, cloth plant hanger in under a hour. It’s a great way to use up leftover fabric scraps and add a bit of a fresh touch for summer. Here’s what you need:
- 1 Yard of non-stretch cloth cut into four 3 inch wide strips
- 1 Brass Ring
- Matching thread
- Sewing machine
Step 1. Sew together 2 strips width wise creating a 72 inch strip. Repeat for 2nd strap.
Step 2. Fold strap in half, right sides together and sew together long wise with ½ inch seam. Repeat with 2nd strap.
Step 3. Turn each strap right side out. (I use the safety pin method)
Step 4 Cross the two straps at right angles and sew together. Reinforce by sewing a second time.
Step 5. Bring all 4 ends together with no twists and tread through the ring. Sew the ends to the straps about 2 inches down from the ring,
Step 6. Cut a 4 inch square of fabric and hem ¼ inch at top and bottom.
Step 7. Fold right sides together and sew a ½ inch seam. Turn right side out.
Step 8. Slip the fabric cover over the bottom of your hanger until it covers the joining seam at the top by the ring.
Insert your plant in the center, hang (I used a toggle hook )and enjoy!
