How to make your own Jellyfish!

We get so many messages from big and little fans about what can they do with all of their washed out Pipin Pear pots! Why not try these super easy and fun Jellyfish and build an underwater kingdom!

This is perfect for little hands to help paint and stick however adult supervision is required for the use of a knife!

You Will Need:

  • An empty Pipin Pear pot with the label removed
  • Acrylic Paint
  • PVA Glue
  • Crepe Paper
  • A piece of wool / ribbon
  • Googly eyes
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Knife

Method:

  1. Turn your pot upside down and ask an adult to make a small hole in centre of the base of your pot with a knife.
  2. Paint the outside of the pot with acrylic paint,any colour you fancy!
    • TOP TIP – To stop your paint from flaking later on, mix a bit of PVA glue into the paint in a small bowl!
  3. Once the pot has dried, tie a knot in the piece of string and thread it through the hole from the inside to the outside of the pot. (the knot will be on the inside of the pot)
  4. Ask an adult to cut your crepe paper into long strips and glue them to the inside of your pot to make your jellyfish tentacles!
  5. Add googly eyes and hang your jellyfish in a window for everyone to admire your beautiful creation!
