Homemade jolly jellyfish

Our craft Queen Gemma Chandler shows you how to make this fabulously cute jolly jellyfish decoration. Don't worry, it doesn't sting!

These funky little crafts bring vibrancy and decoration to your home. They look best hung in a room exposed to sunshine, allowing their beauty and plethora of colour to be truly appreciated.

The craft is simple to make and the majority of the materials are probably in your draws at home. Not only will little ones love making these, they'll also be kept busy. Start crafting and make these sea friends an established part of the family, they're very friendly.

You will need:

  • Paper bowls
  • Spotty tissue paper
  • Pva glue
  • Paint brush
  • Sheer ribbons
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Skewer
  • String

Step 1

Tear the spotty tissue paper into small pieces. Turn a paper bowl upside down and cover with glue. Stick the spotty tissue pieces all over the surface, covering up all the gaps. Leave to dry.

Step 2 

Turn the bowl over. Cut some organza ribbons into different lengths and glue the ends to the middle of the bowl.

Step 3

When dry, turn the bowl back over again, and stick on a pair of wiggle eyes. Ask an adult to make a hole in the middle of the bowl with a skewer. Thread a length of string inside and knot underneath the bowl.
