A macramé plant hanger


This idea teaches children about UN Sustainable Development Goal 12, which aims to ensure responsible consumption and production. In order to save the earth’s resources, one of the most important things we can do is to reuse and recycle things rather than produce new ones.

Make a plant hanger using cotton twine in a wooden ring. Vary the macramé knots by braiding either double knots or simple knots for a flat or a twisted look. You will need approx. 37 m cotton twine for a plant hanger with a finished measurement of 100 cm without the plant pot.
