Macramé is the art of creating decorations from knotted material. It first emerged in Persia and Syria thousands of years ago and is a type of handmade decoration made from thick thread or rope, which is knotted or plaited to create a structure which closely resembles bobbin lace.

Over the last season, we have seen macramé decorations being used to decorate all around houses and apartments. They bring a warm, homely feel that we simply love, as well as a distinctive boho look.

Using macramé to create plant pot stands is one of the most popular trends of this season. Using plants and other natural elements is essential in this type of decoration, and will really help to highlight your boho chic style. This type of decoration is simple, but really original too. You can hang them from the walls or the ceiling, and use them to display plants in your house.

Inside, you can place plant pots, glass bottles, candles, or even fish tanks or terrariums… Use your imagination and give your home a really special touch.

You can use all types of different knots to create your macramé decorations. People usually decorate them with tassels and beads to add the perfect finishing touch. The only limit is your imagination!

One great option is to combine these macramé decorations with hanging plant pots to create your own hanging garden. This will help you save space and give your home a really special and natural feel. You could also put your macramé plant pots in one corner of your room, in front of your window or out on your balcony. Another option is to hang them at all different heights to create a beautiful display. This is always a fantastic look!

Corners are some of our favorite places for these decorations and can be used to create something really special for your home. Plus, choosing the right plants will help you to create the perfect look.
