The macrame plant hanger trend seems to be going strong. Luckily you no longer have to rely on a score at the the thrift store or learn how to tie a slew of knots to get one of your own. These days many big box stores are carrying various jute hangers. They are cute as is, but with an ombre dye job they are even better.
– Jute macrame plant hangers (mine came from Tuesday Morning)
– Potted hanging plant
– Tulip One-Step Mini Tie-Dye Kit
– Vat for dying
Starting with my lightest color (yellow) I applied a generous amount of dye. Jute takes awhile to absorb dye so let it sit for quite awhile, even overnight, before rinsing.
Before I applied my next shade of dye I moved the yellow portion of the jute tassel out of the tub.
Once all three dye colors were applied I hung my planters in a tree to sit overnight.
After the dye had sat overnight I gave it a good rinse with the hose and allowed the jute to dry again. All that was left to do was insert my hanging plants and admire.
