Little Crafts: crepe paper jellyfish

Jellyfish 5_FinalHere’s a fun under-the-sea craft that little ones can do.
Make a crepe paper jellyfish.

Depending on your little crafters age, you can make this project simpler or more elaborate.

Materials Needed:
  • Cupcake liners
  • Crepe Paper (for this project, I used white, pink and purple)
  • Glue
  • Needle and thread

Jellyfish Collage Final
  1. Start with two cupcake liners stacked together to form the base of your jellyfish. I found that one liner was too flimsy so I used two. Thread your needle and poke the needle up through the cupcake liners.
  2. Cut rounded-edge strips of crepe paper and stick them onto the needle. For smaller children you can just glue them on. Once you are done covering the cupcake liner with the crepe paper strips, poke the needle back through creating a loop to hang your jellyfish. Tie off the bottom of the threads.
  3. Cut various lengths and widths of crepe paper to form the tentacles.
  4. Flip the cupcake liner over and start gluing the strips of crepe paper to the inside. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly.

Hang your jellyfish and let the tentacles flutter in the breeze (or ocean current).

And the best part is these sweet jellyfish don’t sting!

Happy Labor Day to my U.S. friends ~ enjoy the day off!
