Step by Step Tutorial

The Body

Mark a line at 3 cm on the toilet paper roll.

Step 1

Cut following the line with your scissors or use a craft knife.

Step 2

Cut out a piece of blue color crepe paper big enough to wrap the paper roll piece with it.

Apply some glue on the paper roll and then wrap the paper roll piece with the blue crepe paper.

Step 4

Place the paper roll on a piece of black cardstock and trace a circle.

Cut out the circle with the extensions.

Step 7

Glue it on a piece of blue crepe paper.

Step 8

Cut out the excess crepe paper around the circle.

Step 9

Apply some glue on the extensions and attach them inside the paper roll so the circle closes one end of the paper roll completely.

Step 10

This will be the body of the jellyfish.

Step 10-1

Glue the googly eyes on the jellyfish.

Step 11

Take the black liner and draw a tiny circular mouth.

The Tentacles

Take a piece of blue crepe paper and make some cuts on it, as shown.

These strips will be the tentacles of the jellyfish.

Step 13

Fold this piece in a zig-zag way.

Step 14

Like you would make an accordion fold.

Step 14-1

Go around the tentacles with scissors (cut curves in and out) to make them wavy.  

Step 15

Unfold the tentacles.

Step 15-1

Twist the top part where the tentacles meet with your fingers.

Glue the tentacles inside the toilet paper roll.
