Lobster Buoys

Decorative buoys made of needlecelted wool and natural driftwood.



Thirdlee hand crafted buoy ornaments are made of needle felted wool and locally collected driftwood. Sizes range from small ornaments to almost life size décor pieces. The buoy ornaments also work as place card holders, an adorable detail for summer entertaining. Visit my shop to order.

If you are not familiar, lobster buoys dot the waters along the New England coast marking the location of traps below. The colors and designs are specific to the lobsterman who owns them. Retired or lost buoys often hang in numbers on fishing shacks and outbuildings, they even decorate village Christmas trees. I can't help but smile at the bright colors and feel thankful for the hardworking men and women behind this local icon.
