This artistic ropework not only creates an original room divider, but also provides scented white bloomers such as Stephanotis and Jasmine with a sturdy base on which to climb and allow their attractive tendrils to wander. The Gardenia always keeps its branches and flowers neatly under control, so it provides an attractive upright counterpoint. These three beautifully scented white bloomers are the Houseplants of the month for March. Lovely to look at, an experience in the home, and this piece of macramé is easier than you think!
What you need:
- White fragrant plants like Stephanotis, Jasmine and Gardenia
- As many saucepans as you have fragrant plants (these are from Ikea)
- Round pole, 120 cm long
- Sturdy rope: 12 six metre ropes have been used here
- Drill + drill part the same thickness of the rope
Hang the pole from the ceiling and tie 24 ropes to the pole to create 12 pairs. Tie the ropes with a crown knot. You can find technique and the variations here.
