Glass Float Ornaments

Here are a few great homemade DIY ideas, as well as sources where to buy these ornaments, reminiscent of the Glass Floats once used to keep fishing nets afloat.

Rope Net Glass Float Tree Ornaments
Inspired by the red glass floats on a Christmas tree featured at Zara Home, Melina at Decoholic decided to (save money) and make the net glass ornaments herself. You only need Christmas ball ornaments, twine and scissors!

Homemade DIY Glass Float Ornament
She created 6 ornaments which cost her in total less than $16. She also really had fun putting the handmade glass ornaments together! She says it only takes about 15 minutes to create each ornament. By making the glass float ornaments yourself, you can pick any color you want. Red is a classic for Christmas! Authentic Floats are green and blue-ish, but no matter what color, glass float ornaments with netting will always have sea appeal! For the tutorial, head over to the Decoholic!
