Macramé inspired hanging test tubes

Knot the line to make a catch for the bubble

Cut two long lengths of fishing line for each glass bubble you want to hang. Fold the line in half to establish the middle point. Open the fold and knot the line 0.5 cm from the middle point on each side to create a catch for the glass bubble

Split the line open and make a knot

Split the line open and make a knot 2cm up the line

Secure the glass by knotting the line

Split the line open again and knot the line tightly on each side around the neck of your bubble. Hang the bubbles from the line
