It’s always a positive when saving money so this next tip will not only be beneficial for your nautical home transition but for your wallet. You will need 3-4 light blue glass mason jars, 3-4 tea lights, netting (any decorative fish nets if possible), twine or rope, scissors and a glue gun. This is an easy and fun DIY project that you kids could even help you with (except the glue fun part!). Step one: Cut and measure just enough netting to cover the jar, plus the bottom part. Step two: Hold one side of the netting to the jar by putting dots of glue at the ends. Then, wrap the net around the fixture to secure the other side and repeat the gluing process to the other end. This will form a nice tight seam. Continue this seam across the bottom of the jar and trim any excess netting, if necessary. Step three: You then will take one end of the twine and with some glue dot around the rim to secure the twine right about the seam. Wrap the twine around the cover of the rim and top of the net, finishing at the same spot above the seam. Lastly, add some tea lights into your jars and if you want you can put some shells or sand in the jar, creating a creative beachy home decoration.
