Iridescent Jellyfish


  • Iridescent cello wrap
  • Baby Blue tissue paper
  • Fine fishing line
  • Hot glue
  • Large needle
  • Scissors


  1. Crumple and shape the tissue paper into a mushroom top shape, pushing up in the middle to create a bowl shape. Our models are about 3" across the bottom, but you can make them any size you want.
  2. Cut out a circle of cello wrap that is big enough to wrap over the tissue paper shape, and tuck into the bottom. Blue in place at the bottom.
  3. Cut out a rectangle from the cello wrap that is 12"x16". Cut into fringe.
  4. Roll fringe tightly and put a dab of glue to keep it from unrolling. These are the tentacles of your jellyfish.
  5. Thread a long piece of fishing line with a knot in it through the jellyfish body to use as the hanger.
  6. Take the tentacles and glue into the middle of your jellyfish, then trim to uneven lengths.
