What is this ancient Japanese art form of which I speak? It's called kirigami, and it is a variation of origami that involves paper cutting. The result is an intricate, symmetrical pattern on a single sheet of paper. Now, using the same method of paper cutting on a more durable material like leather will give you a modern "basket" in which to hold your plants. Add in a bit of macrame-style knot tying and you've got a stylish, modern plant hanger. Your friends will be dying to know where you got it.
You can get as creative as you want with the macrame part of the hanger. For the second hanger, I used sisal rope and wood beads. I tied knots before and after I inserted the beads. With the third planter, I used the sisal rope and wood beads as well, but finished the top with a basic macrame braid before I added the ring. You can also tie a simple loop knot at the end instead of using a metal ring. Get crazy on this part; use different color beads, strings and even eyelets. Anything goes! Hang up your plants in style.
