DIY Lantern Jellyfish in 5 Easy Steps

-
The easiest and coolest DIY decoration at Camila's Under The Sea party was the Lantern Jellyfish. They hung from the ceiling giving our party that under the sea feeling I was trying to achieve. Another huge thank you to Oriental Trading who sponsored this post! All opinions expressed are 100% my own. 

What you'll need:

  1. Streamers - I got mine here
  2. Lantern - I got an assorted pack of pink lanterns here
  3. Clear Tape -from the dollar store
  4. Fishing Wire - from my hubby's tackle box haha
  5. Scissors - from Michael's

Step 1: "Build" your lantern

  Most lanterns come with a square metal wire that holds it up to give it shape, follow the instructions on the package to build it!


 

Step 2: Cut & Scrunch

Cut various sizes of streamers, the length you think will fit your Jellyfish then scrunch them up to get that tentacle effect. I cut and scrunched all of the streamers before I started to do everything else so that they would stay scrunched, when you unravel the scrunched up balls they straighten out a little bit so keep them scrunched until the very last minute.


3: Tape & Unravel

Since I didn't have double sided tape I just made a little tape loop so it wouldn't show, then I placed it on one side of the unraveled streamer.

4: Atattch the tentacles 

I used the 3rd ring from the bottom of the lanter to keep my tentacles in lin, so just pick a spot and line them up right next to each other until you go all the way around.

5: Hang it up

I used the fishing wire to hand my jellyfish from the ceiling to give it that floating in mid-air effect!



Here's the final product! I absolutely love them! To see the rest of the party decorations click here, and to see all the sweet treats click here.
