I have this panorama window along my kitchen that I decorated with a fishing net and lots of underwater creature ornaments.
At fairs (which I always LOVE to attend) I have seen this great idea of using air plants in many different ways, but they are always pricey.
So I wanted to add my own DIY version of an air-plant jellyfish to my underwater home decor. And it turned out easier then I imagined.
- Air plant ( I picked mine right out of our bushes but you can also find them at Home Depot or online)
- A shell from a sea urchin (there are many tourist stores here in Florida that sell them and I got mine for $1 but they are also available online)
- Jute String or any other rustic looking string you can find in your craft stash
Putting it all together:
Then all you have to do is take the string, fold it in half and pull the loop through the holes in the sea urchin.
Next, make as many knots with the two ends as new so the string won’t pull out of the top hole in my he sea urchin. Pull it up to check.
Finally, just put the air plant in the bottom hole of the sea urchin so it is hanging up side down. These are the tentacles of the jellyfish and the sea urchin is the body.
If you would like, you can add glue to both the string and air plant to keep it all secure. I left mine without glue because it didn’t look like it would come apart.
Now you can hang it anywhere in the house or outside. Don’t forget to make some more for your friends! These little ornaments also make great housewarming gifts that are green and made from all natural resources.
