How to Make a Decorative Fishnet for Your Beachy Gallery Wall

Bask in those beach vibes long after your vacation with this easy DIY project! Linda from It All Started with Paint added a cool fishnet accessory to her wood wall panel gallery to remind her of childhood memories beach-hopping on the Jersey coast. Follow along as she shares how to create a fishnet decoration out of jute string you can pick up from your local craft store.

Excerpt from It All Started with Paint:

1. Cut a length of jute to your desired width. String it up horizontally among two points. (I found it much easier to hang it up vs. lying flat on a surface.)

2. Cut lengths of jute 2 ½ times longer than your desired length. Fold each piece in half over the horizontal piece so you have two equal lengths.

3. Create a loop and feed two equal lengths through.
