Growing up in the '70s, our house was filled with macramé plant hangers. I noticed a resurgence of these--even Anthropologie has made their contribution. So I decided to combine my new-found love for the succulent terrarium with the plant hanger. But, I must admit, I was not on board for learning a new craft.
Hence, the Knitted Terrarium Hanger. I used inexpensive, natural cooking twine. I don't have an exact yardage, but I probably only used about one-third of the cone on size US 8 dpn's. I don't think gauge matters on this--you're just slipping it around a 6" glass bubble bowl. I tied off the top around a metal O-ring you find at a hardware store using a slip knot. There probably is a nicer option to the slip knot, but again, not really into learning about knot tying.
Making the terrarium is pretty fun and simple--just be careful if you're using little miniature cacti. I used those little ice cube tongs to place mine after getting some pretty nasty stickers in my fingers.
