Bleaching Drop Cloth without a Top Loading Washer

Macrame Plant Hanger Tutorial

  DIY Hanging Planter Macrame Design This DIY hanging planter is incredibly simple to make, using only 3 kinds of macrame knots.  I built a wood plant hanger to suspend a flower pot and discovered the hanger that came with the flowers was really ugly.  The black plastic really stuck out against the cream siding on our front porch, and the way the strings were twisted made it so conspicuous.   g This easy hanger…
