This cute fish decoration is really easy to make so children of all ages can enjoy this craft.
You will need:
Choose the color that you want your fish decoration to be and then pick a sheet of thin cardstock that is similar in color. Use the pencil to draw an outline of a fish and cut it out. Then draw on the markings of the fish, such as the fin, the tail etc.
Cover the top of the fish in glue, and use a paintbrush to spread it around evenly across the piece of card. Make sure there is enough glue so that it doesn’t dry out whilst you are decorating the rest of the fish. If it does dry out, just add a little more glue. Then tear off strips of yellow tissue paper and scrunch into little balls. Push each of these paper balls onto the detail parts of the fish that you drew in step 1.
Make more tissue paper balls out of the red tissue paper, and fill in the remaining parts of the fish. Once the glue has dried, stick a googly eye onto the face to finish your fish.
