For these houseplant clipping hangers, we’ll use just a bit of cotton yarn, a size H/5mm crochet hook and some suction cups rated for up to 3 lbs. Overkill? Maybe. Better safe than sorry, I say. 😉 And the water used for growing the clippings is heavier than you may think.

Straps for hanging:

Starting at the end of round 10, ch-25. Fasten off leaving a long (20”-ish) tail. First strap made.  Evenly space two more ch-25 straps for hanging. Weave in all ends.

Pull all three chains up and make sure they are even in length before tying together. Tie a knot using all three of the strap chains.

Take the leftover yarn ends and form a loop for hanging. Keep from losing the loop by placing a stitch marker. Next, wrap the remaining yarn around and around, using your yarn needle to push all yarn ends up through the center to secure.

Voila! You’re done!! Take your suction cup hangers and slap that bad boy on a kitchen window. Clip some of your favorite houseplants and add a bit of water.  After a while (with many varieties of houseplants) they will start to grow roots that you can then transplant to a pot with soil.

Aren’t these fun? And who would have guessed these had a prior occupation as a yogurt container?! Certainly not me! 😉 I’m thinking the larger baby food jars and smaller mason jars would also work well!

  1. Thanks for posting this! I have been growing succulents in similar little glass jars (river rocks at the bottom so the soil can drain), and have been wanting to chrochet hangers for a long time. You saved me the trouble of figuring it out the slow way, so yay! I love it!
  2. I LOVE the Que yogurt bottles as planters!! They had designs on them at one point, haven't seen those in a while now. Thanks for the pattern for the hangers for them!! I had NO idea how to do it and LOTS of bottles saved.
  3. Where else can I access the pattern? Not able to copy correctly from phone...thank you. These are adorable!
  4. I can't wait to make this! Reminds me of the macrame hangers we made in the late 60's and 70;s oh-so-many-years ago, but for me, crocheting will make it much easier, prettier, and way more fun. I hadn't tried that yogurt yet, but I eat yogurt daily so am looking forward to that as well. Thank you so much for sharing!

  14. These is such a cute idea! I have a small collection of these same yogurt jars but cannot seem to get the labels off! I’ve tried everything I can think of! What, may I ask was your trick to get the label off? I want to use your pattern, but mine won’t be as pretty as yours if mine still have labels! Lol
    1. WD 40 gets sticky off and so does Goo-Gone. I also use a Magic Eraser to get any wording off plastics and glass.
    2. Boiling in water with a bit of salt and vinegard. But put them in the water while still cold, for them to warm up slowly, as water is warming, if you put them cold in to hot water they might break
