Paper Plate Jellyfish

Another fun paper plate project you can do at home with children or grandchildren.

Here’s the process:

  • Draw a wavy line across the plate about three fourths of the way down.  Cut with scissors, and lay aside the smaller piece.
  • Using a damp piece of sponge and several colors of neon acrylic paint, sponge paint the plate on one side.  Let dry.
  • Cut out the white part of an eye (round, oval, or any shape) out of white paper or white foam sheets.  Cut two smaller circles out of black paper or foam sheets.  Glue these on the plate  and allow to dry.
  • Last step:  Collect any ribbon, ric rac, or other scraps of trim you have.  Cut them up in different lengths and tape them in a row on the back  (white side) of the plate.  (we used skinny duct tape).   There you have it: an easy jellyfish that pleases the younger set.
  • PS  Allow the creators to cut their own plates, do their own sponge painting, and attach their own trim pieces.  The goal is to promote creativity and individuality.
  • This idea originated on Pinterest.
