Bring the fresh ocean feel to your nursery with this easy decor, minus the sting.
What you’ll need:
- Japanese or Crepe Paper in different colours and textures: 500mm
(We got ones in silvery lavender, a deep purple and blush pink)
- Cupcake liner or Coke float or Starbucks take-out cap
- Clear masking tapes
- Old paper bag (for your DIY twine)
- 1.To create the jellyfish dome, use the cupcake liner or in our case, the Coke float/Starbucks drink cap. If using a cupcake liner, punch a hole at the middle of the bottom part. If using the drink cap, wrap over some masking tape to cover the straw hole.
- 2.Using an old paper bag, cut a 2-inch strip to form the twine loop to use for hanging our jellyfish. Once you have the strip, twist it tightly to make the twine. If it’s too thick, you can reduce it to an inch.
- 3.Secure the loop with a tape and tie a knot so it will not slip when you punch it in the dome.
- 4.Cut several strips of the Japanese paper in tongue-shaped form to start layering the first coat of the base.
- 5.Turn the base upside down and layer the insides too.
- 6.Turn the base upside down and layer the insides too.
- 7.Cover up the base until you achieve something like this.
- 8.Cut different lengths of the paper variety to make the tentacles. What we did was to cover the first base with the blush pink crepe paper, then covered the insides with silver lavender crepe and finished it off with the long strings of deep purple.
- 9.Hang your jellyfish in your nursery.
PRO TIP: This paper palette works best for coral-coloured nurseries because the base coats are light with punches of a dark shade. You can also use teal and orange or teal and peach.
