Paper Bowl Jellyfish Craft

What you need:
Dixie® paper bowls
Colorful paper streamers
Stapler, tape or glue
One sheet of black and white construction paper
String
Push pin

Instructions:
1. To create the jellyfish's head, scrunch paper streamers and wind around the outside of the bowl, attaching with adhesive.
2. Create googly eyes out of construction paper and glue to your streamer-wrapped bowl.
3. To create the Jellyfish's tentacles, cut strips of streamers of varying lengths.
4. Adhere the tentacle strips to the inside of the bowl, being sure to distribute evenly.
5. Scrunch and crumble the tentacle strips to create a rippling texture. Gently shake the tentacle streamers free from one another so that they hang loosely. (If you pull too hard, they might rip.)
6. Using a push pin, poke a hole through the center of the bowl.
7. Cut wire or string. Tie a knot at one end and thread the unknotted side through the hole going bottom to top.
8. Hang your jellyfish craft and voila! To create an under-the-sea effect, create multiple jellyfish and hang at varying heights.
