How to Make a Jellyfish from Craft Sticks

jellyfish-001

I was thinking about making a jellyfish from crafts sticks and gave it a go. I attempted so many different versions, using a bunch of different materials, but the characters I was creating just wouldn’’t look like jellyfish! Then I had a breakthrough! Why didn’t I bend the craft stick!  So, I tried it out and successfully transformed the bendy sticks into jellyfish. You can see how I made these jellyfish by watching my video or following the written instruction below.

Materials:

5 Wooden craft sticks
Hot glue
Scissors
Paint
Paint brush
water
Googly eyes
Pencil
Ruler

How to Make a Jellyfish from Craft Sticks:

  • Soak the craft sticks overnight.
  • •Bend carefully into a semicircle and place in a mug to mold the shape and leave overnight to dry.
  • Once the sick has dried, it is ready to paint.
  • Also, paint a few straight sticks as they will be used for the legs and the bottom of the jellyfish.
  • Cut the straight sticks into five legs.
  • Measure 6 cm along one stick and cut it to length.
  • Hot glue the sides of the 6cm stick to the bottom of the bent stick.
  • Now glue on the five legs.
  • Add the two googly eyes, and you’re finished!
