Fishing line trellis

Hey every one...remember when I posted about allllll the fishing line that I received on one of my freecycle trips?  No, didn't think so!!  Well here is a pic to refresh your memory.  This is only one bag of it.


Since I am crafty and cheap ($ wise), I have been looking on-line for different ways to use up this stuff.  One of the ways to use it up was to make a trellis.  So I got to it.

I pulled out my little box of all the misc. screws and bolts that have been left over or recycled from stuff that has been put together in our home and 1 handy dandy screw driver.


I marked the fence where I wanted to put the screws...I didn't measure, I'm a big believer in eye-balling stuff, lol!!  


I found the strongest fishing line in my pile and got to wrapping and knotting.  If you look very closely I have (5) lines a that go from left to right and (2) lines that make a (X) in the center.


I bought flowering Jasmine to grow there.  I wish there was more to show you, but that's it, that's all that has grown.  It doesn't even have flowers  (*.*).  I really hope it works out the way I want it to.   It has been really hot and I've been trying to water, so we'll see.


Until next time!! Thanks for stopping by.

Linking up at these fabulous parties this week!

  3. What a great idea. I bet when the vines grow a little bit they will look very neat like they are floating in air. Great job. I would love if you linked them up to Show Off Monday @ Kampenlane.com

  4. The jasmine loves hot weather. I can't tell from the picture if it is a Confederate jasmine or not, but they love to climb. I cannot believe you got all that line for free. Great trellis idea! Came over from Make It Pretty.

    I hope it will stand up to the weather... of course if not... you have plenty of fishing line to replace it with! LOL

  11. Wow! This is a great idea for training tender vines. I planted two Carolina Jasmine (jessamine?) plants and one Confederate Jasmine by a treated wood trellis and the Carolina seems to want something skinnier than the latticework to climb on. Your fishing line trick may be a great place for it to start.

    Now..the Confederate? It's going crazy! The flowers on this vine smell wonderful and it's tough as tacks!

  19. This is such a cool idea. When I showed my husband the picture of all the fishing line he was drooling over it (he is a bigtime fisherman):)

  31. That looks like it worked out perfect! Great idea, and super way to use up all that fishing line...don't think my fisherman husband would agree, but I love it! :)

  32. I so want to do this on our back fence. It is such an eye sore. I was thinking of climbing roses. I wonder if I will need to use something a little stronger than fishing line...maybe wire. Thanks for sharing!

  33. Okay for real, this is a genius idea, and so helpful when you are on a budget...I mean most people have fishing line and nails laying around the house, so that limits what you have to spend to get this made! Thanks so much for sharing this at last weeks party!

    I wanted to let you know that we featured this at this weeks Naturally-Nifty Party! STop by and check it out and grab a featured button!
