How to Tie Fishing Line to Hang Ornaments?

Decorating for the holidays can be a fun and rewarding experience, especially when you’re able to take part in activities that involve making your own decorations. Learning how to tie fishing line to hang ornaments can help you create unique holiday decorations that will be sure to impress your family and friends. This guide will show you the basics of tying fishing line and provide a few tips on how to get the best results.

The first step is to make sure you have the right materials. You will need some type of fishing line, such as monofilament or braided line, as well as a pair of scissors or utility knife. You may also want to have some pliers on hand for extra grip when you’re tying knots.

Once you have all of your materials ready, it’s time to start tying your fishing line around the ornament. Start by folding the line in half and creating a loop.

Then place the ornament in the center of the loop and tie an overhand knot around it. This knot should be tight enough so that it won’t come undone, but not so tight that it damages the ornament.

Next, take a length of fishing line and make another overhand knot at one end. To attach this knot to your existing knot, thread the end through one side of your original knot and then back through itself again before tightening it up.

Tying off:

Once you’ve finished tying your knots together, it’s time to tie off the remaining slack from both pieces of fishing line. Take both ends of each piece of fishing line and tie an overhand knot at each end. These knots should be close together with no slack left in between them.

Finishing up:

The last step is to trim away any excess fishing line with scissors or a utility knife. Be careful not to cut too much off as this could weaken your knots and cause them to come undone easily. Once finished, hang up your ornament wherever you desire!


Learning how to tie fishing line is an easy way to create unique holiday decorations that will be sure to impress family and friends. All you will need are some basic supplies such as fishing line, scissors or a utility knife, and pliers if desired. Once you understand the basics steps described above, you can use these same principles when decorating for other holidays throughout the year.
