Bottle Cap Jellyfish

Introduction: Bottle Cap Jellyfish

About: Teaching you about eco-friendly crafts/upcycled projects so you can save money while saving Earth.

Make little jellyfish decorations with bottle caps and glue.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need glue that dries clear, pliers, and bottle cap(s). Tape is not necessary, I just think it makes things easier.

Step 2: Make the Jellyfish Body

Use the pliers to flatten the edge of the bottle cap. This will be the jellyfish body!

Step 3: Make the Jellyfish Tentacles

Use the glue to form a tentacle on a smooth surface or a piece of tape. I made the tentacles about 1 inch long.

Step 4: Let the Glue Dry

Leave the tentacles to dry until they start to look clear around the edges.

Step 5: Let the Glue Dry More

When the edges of the tentacles are clear, you can peel them off. Place the tentacles upside down so the other side can dry. When the tentacles are completely dry they will look clear.

Step 6: Attach the Tentacles to the Body

You can use tape or glue to attach the tentacles to the body.

Step 7: Decorate

You can glue the jellyfish to something


You can attach it to a string and hang it somewhere (that's what I did)


You can put it in a jar full of water and pretend you have a pet jellyfish


You can be creative and do something that I haven't thought of

    This looks really nice!

    Instead of using glue for the tantacles you could use clear fishing line.

    I thought about fishing line, but I wanted some tentacles to be wide and wavy.
