How to Make Hanging Painted Fish
When it comes to coastal decor, we've got a big catch for you! Add some fun deep sea decorations to your home this summer starting with these adorable Hanging Painted Fish!
Cut the fins off of the fish using your X-acto knife.
Paint fish white
Paint both sides of the fish white and allow to dry completely.
Add blue to fish
Paint at least 3 of the body sections blue, alternating blue and white. Allow to dry.
Dip the end of your paint brush into the blue paint and dot an eye on each fish.
Cut & wrap jute
Cut 3 yards of jute. Fold jute in half, leaving a 2" loop. Knot it. Wrap both sections around the first fish and knot. Separate the jute, tie one fish about 4.5" below the first fish and the last fish about 7" down.
