Hi, Last week I shared my DIY Seashell Centerpiece with Capiz shells, sand and glass.

This week I would like to bring you part 2 of my seashell summer centerpieces.

I will show you how to use fishing net in three different ways. You will be able to do this project with only one package of netting, 3 cylinder vases, seashells and mother of pearl filler.

Materials Needed for this DIY Seashell Centerpiece

With one package of fishing net from the dollar tree, I was able to design 3 cylinder seashell-filled vases. I found the vases also at the Dollar tree. So other than the fillers and seashells, this vignette would only cost you around 3 dollars, provided you have seashells and filler on hand. Or shop online for nautical fishing net #ad.

How to Use Fishing Net in Decorating

To decorate the first vase:

Cut enough off to go around what ever size cylinder or vase you may have

Take and fold your fish netting in half to find the center of the net.

Open it up and wrap it around the top of your cylinder vase bringing it forward.

Crisscross your netting and take it to the back of your vase and repeat the crisscross.

Bring it around to the front and tie it off in a knot.

For the decoration of the second vase:

Open up your netting.

Wrap it around the vase.

Knot the ends.

For the last vase:

The net was left unopened and just wrapped around tied in a knot. The two ends were knotted as well.

Here are the three vases filled with seashells, pebbles and a candle, and wrapped with the fish netting.  the look great together.
