Today I’m going to share some easy fish craft decorations that are perfect for an ocean party! Hang these cute decorations make from paper lanterns and impress all the guests with your creativity!
Fish Craft Lantern Supplies:
- Paper Lanterns (in colors of your choice)
- Assorted Tissue Paper
- Darice Cardstock
- Darice Scissors
- Darice Glue Stick
- Darice Double Sided Tape Roller
- String or Clear Cord
Step 1. Assemble the paper lanterns. Cut out a circle from coordinating tissue paper that is the same size as the smaller opening in the paper lantern. Cut another larger circle around the first circle that you made. You can either trace around round surfaces (like the bottoms of cups, bowls, etc.), or use a die cut machine. I used my Sizzix Big Shot to create my circles. Glue the tissue paper ring around the smaller hole in the paper lantern.
Step 3. Next come the fins for the fish craft. Fold a piece of coordinating tissue paper, and freehand a wavy fin shape with a flat bottom. Glue the two pieces together with a glue stick EXCEPT for the bottom inch. Fold out the flap of the bottom inch, and add glue to the inside of each flap.
Step 5. For the tail, double a piece of tissue paper, and cut out a medium-long tail shape. Glue the tail together with a glue stick except for the top couple inches of the tail. Put glue on the inside of the two flaps at the top of the tail, and press onto the back-center of the fish craft.
