I enjoyed this project, it took me one evening to do this project, even while battling away a playful cat attempting to take my string away. Now to figure out where and what to hang in it.
It was fun to finally learn how to do this. Instructions were easy to follow. Rather than hanging the item to tie the knots, I laid it flat & pinned it on a large piece of cardboard. That worked best for me. Excited to make more!
Instructions were overall pretty easy to follow but there were a couple of places where instructions called for following the illustrated pattern. Written instructions would have been more helpful. I tried and had to undue portions to make it look like the pattern. Happy with the result.
I bought this kit to make a plant holder to keep my cats away from my little spider plant. I am already familiar with a lot of the knots as I used to make a ton of friendship bracelets as a kid, so I went into this with the idea that I was making a giant friendship bracelet for my potter plant, haha. The instructions are easy to follow, and I would say the time allotment provided for the project was also accurate even for those with no experience in knotting crafts. I would definitely buy this again should I need to make another holder for my plants!
The instructions were so easy to follow and each plant holder came out great. There were some variation to the height of my 2 planters, but that’s definitely due to me tying knots higher on one than the other. I would 100% make these again!
