Dating back to the 18th century, hollow glass balls have been hung to ward off witch's spells and evil spirits. Legend has it that evil is attracted to these colorful balls, pulled inside, and then trapped within the glass webbing, thus protecting the home from harm. It is told on Cape Cod, that fishermen have used these mesmerizing balls in their nets to ward off evil spirits on the high seas.
