Hello! Hope you all had a happy 4th of July!
Lately we have been seeing a lot of great Jellyfish crafts out there in the blog world. Here is our version to add to the mix. We used a clear plastic Fruit Bowl as our top. We spread a layer of Mod Podge (my fave) on the inside of the cup. Sprinkled glitter then applied torn bits of tissue and then another layer of Mod Podge. As you can see from the pictures with the dark background my little assistant loves Mod Podge as much as her Mama and there is a lot of glue inside. I couldn't wait for it to dry to clear for the pictures (it did eventually!)
The stringy ends are made up of yarn and ribbon. I wish I had some Christmas tinsel to add in to the mix too. I tied the bundle together and then threaded a piece of the bundle through a hole on the top. I just used a craft knife to make the hole.
I was going to add googly eyes but my little assistant and little Marine Biologist declared in horror, "A jelly fish doesn't have eyes on top of its head!" So the eyes got nixed. You of course can and should add them because I think they would look cute!
