Flying Jellyfish

Flying Jellyfish



Hang one of these yarn jellyfish on your porch and watch it wave gently in the breeze, just as it would under the sea.

What you’ll need

  • Empty plastic single-serving fruit cup
  • Mod Podge (or white glue or diluted tacky glue)
  • Glitter
  • Colored tissue paper
  • Large nail
  • Yarn and ribbon pieces, each about 1-1/2 feet long
  • 2-1/2-foot length of yarn or ribbon

How to make it

  • Brush the inside of the fruit cup with a layer of Mod Podge, then sprinkle on some glitter. Tear the tissue paper into small pieces. Add the pieces to the inside of the cup, brushing more Mod Podge over them as you go. Allow the cup to dry.

  • Poke a hole in the bottom of the cup. We turned it upside down and hammered a large nail through the center of the cup’s base.

  • Gather about 35 (1-1/2-foot-long) pieces of yarn and ribbon into a neat bundle. Tie the 2-1/2-foot length of yarn around the bundle, about 1-1/2 inches from one end. Thread the ends of this piece of yarn up through the hole in the cup. Tie the ends together for a hanging loop.
