Decorating With Fishing Nets

Decorating With Fishing Nets
separator image
By: CiCi Brown

Decorating with fishing net doesn't have to be just in nautical theme rooms or have anything to do with sea shells . I've used fish nets to organize and to make better use of space in many rooms, closets, campers and even tents.

In the kid's room I wondered what to do with all those space sucking stuffed animals. Well here's a great space fishing net for decorating saving idea. I used a 5 ft. X 10 ft. piece of used fishing net, after I put it through the washing machine. Attached one of the long sides to the ceiling in a corner or somewhere out of the way ,and the other long side I attached the other long end about a foot down the wall from the ceiling . Now here is the fun part ... the kids and I placed and hung and dangled the animals in the net. You'll be surprised at how many the net will actually hold.

Preparing the used fishing net is super simple. Just through it in the washing machine with a good detergent to be sure they are clean. The smells from the ocean are great at the shore but not so wonderful in the bedroom or camper!

Attaching the fishing net to walls will be determined by the construction of the wall, tent roof, ceilings, etc. And by the weight of the items you will be storing in your fishing net. If you plan to have heavier items you may want to wrap the net over a small narrow board before screwing it into the wall or ceiling. It is best to find the stud for attachment too. I have also strung nets on rope, heavy gross grain ribbon and narrow pieces of fishing net cut from one of the sides and used it almost like a big bag and then hung it from a hook in the ceiling.

Another thing we did in the kid's room was to take a piece of net about 2 ft. x 8 in. (you can use any size or shape you want), weave a ribbon around the entire border, this will help make it a little more sturdy, and hung my daughter's barrettes and hair ribbons on the interior and exterior of the net. This could be used for many other things as well like jewelry or belts.

Even in the garage, fishing nets are a great way to save space and add organization to rags your husband may use in working on vehicles, light weight sporting goods like balls, badminton rackets, out of season uniforms and sports wear.

In the bathroom I made a holder for extra rolls of toilet paper with a small piece of fishing net. My sister used this idea for her camper where space is very limited for toilet paper and extra towels.

Decorating with fishing nets is inexpensive and a great way to organize. Use your imagination and have fun. The uses and decorating ideas for used fishing nets is end-less.
