rope plant

DIY: mini knotted plant hanger

If you’re scrambling for a last-minute gift, or are haunted by endless blank walls and empty spaces, this quick craft is your solution. 

Start simply with some rope and a plant of your choosing. I typically go for thinner rope, which makes for daintier hangings.

Cut 4 pieces of rope about 2.5 times what you envision your final product to be. 

Fold the ropes in half to create a loop and tie a knot. This will serve as your hanger. 

After the top knot is complete, begin your first row of knots by tying two adjacent strings together. Repeat this pattern until each rope is tied to the one next to it. 

For your next row, tie knots a couple inches below the row above, using one string from each pair to make a new knot. Be sure that you continue to use adjacent ropes so that the knots continue a circular pattern. 

You can pick any amount of knotted rings you’d like. The width that the knots are apart from one another depend on the width of your plant. For example, if your plant is smaller, you may want to make the rows of knots closer together to create a weaved look around your plant. 

Finally, tie one knot at the bottom of the plant hanger using all of the strings, similar to how you made the top (just without the loop). 

Your final product should be a variation of the plant hanger pictured below

You can utilize different textures and make them in multiples - they sure look good together. 

I hope this little demonstration pumps some inspiration into your bloodstream. Happy crafting!

Hi, I love your composition in your arts. They're amazing! How do create such interesting composition ideas so that your when people look at it, it holds your focus and draws your eyes around the art?

Hi!  When I draw, I try to create a ”flow” in the artwork. First, I decide what the main object of the artwork should be (most of the times its the face of a character), and place it around the middle. Then I draw some long objects (ropes, plants, clouds etc. ) that leads to the main object. Its kinda like guidelines to show people where to look at. These lines create a natural flow in the artwork which draws people’s attention. Here are some examples. The circles are the main objects and the arrows are the long stuff.

macrame home decor by nomamacrame

macrame has always been a boho look that i adore — love the unique knotted patterns and inclusion of beads or stones or fringe to make each piece special. nomamacrame’s wares are eclectic and beautiful, like this super-unique tasseled shelf and slightly more traditional plant hanger.

CRYING WOLF | a sansan wrestling AU written with the help of @lostwolfling. one-shot. 

The chants have followed her from show to show. Weak!, You’re a coward!, Where’s your sister? Jeering, cruel, and consistent every week since Joffrey closed the ladder on her father’s head in King’s Landing, a halo of blood pooling under Ned Stark’s head in the ring. Arya went missing back in King’s Landing, running out from the stadium and into the night. It makes no sense to Sansa, no matter how many times she whispers the truths to herself. Her father, in a coma and half-dead. Robb and Jon, released from their WWE contracts. Her sister, the Arya Brave to her Fearless Sansa, just gone, Cersei and Joffrey physically incapable of exerting a single fuck.

But oh, how the crowd reminds her.

You sold out! You sold out! You sold out!

She stood by Joffrey’s side, she did, helped him defend the Intercontinental Championship when she could interfere. She wore his ring, clung to the apron during his matches. Then, the week after King’s Landing, he marched her to the center of the ring and had her watch in front of thousands, her father’s head being crushed between two halves of a steel ladder.

Everyone here hates her.

She hates herself, for being a stupid girl. For ever wanting to come here in the first place. For thinking herself in love with Joffrey “The Heir” Baratheon. For not listening to her father when he wanted to run after Robert’s accident.

But even the crowd doesn’t know what to do with this, murmuring uncomfortably as Joffrey’s guards circle her.

Meryn Trant. Boros Blount. Sandor Clegane.

Perhaps one of them, she might be able to fight and win, with Arya by her side. Sansa doesn’t want her gear torn off her again, like Joffrey ordered a few cities ago. Eyes wide, she looks at the Hound. He’s never hurt her. He saved her, once before. Please, her eyes beg him. Please.

Dress

Do you guys remember me telling you about the Dress fic?  Well you can thank @cannon-fannon @shesamarshmallow @dabvers for encouraging this nonsense.  

Read it HERE or below


It wasn’t supposed to be this hard.  There were rules in place, guidelines that she and Kara had hashed out over two bottles of wine (alien, for Kara) allowing them to keep this casual, simple, secret.  It was easy at the start, fuelled by alcohol and lust, taking over their intimate moments before the sun rose and settled them back into their platonic roles.  Months of late nights and sneaking home.

Christmas for pets is so much more fun than humans exhibit A: when u buy presents for people there’s all the stress of picking the perfect thing and spending a certain amount of money so u don’t look cheap & presenting it properly & awkwardly watching them open it while continually muttering “I have the receipt…if u don’t like it…” but w/ my rats I know that I can give them a half-empty box of tissues and some banana mash and they’ll just be like “OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE OH MAN OH MAN OH M”

Dialogue Prompts (Gabriel’s Monthly Challenge):
“All that bravado, all those witty comebacks… Just to hide how terrified you really are.”  &  “My life consists of bad puns and candy.”

Summary: 
Sam Winchester hates mistletoe, it’s so typical in romance stories. To further prove his point, a pagan god decided to stab him with that stupid plant. The hunter knew that plant sucked, this will prove his point even more to Dean. Now he was suck sick in bed with “Nurse Gabriel” as his company while fighting of the feeling of wanting more with the angel. Castiel is suck with two love sick idiots who don’t realize the growing attraction between each other. The angel is about to drink a liquor store if his stupid brother continues like this, desperate times calls for desperate measures.
