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


  1. Firstly, clean your Pipin Pear pots with warm, soapy water and then remove the labels from the outside.
  2. Secondly, turn your pot upside down then ask an adult to make a small hole in centre of the base of your pot with a knife.
  3. 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 and apply this onto the pot!
  4. 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), in the same way as in our Pipin Pear Musical Instruments.
  5. After that, ask an adult to cut your crepe paper into long strips and then glue them to the inside of your pot. This will make your jellyfish tentacles!
  6. Finally, add googly eyes and hang your jellyfish in a window. Then sit back, relax, and watch everyone admire your beautiful creation!
