Step 2 : glue the 1 and half inch fabric ribbon around the lantern. I folded the ribbon a few times to give it an undulating effect.
Step 3 : For the tentacles, cut a few strings of fabric ribbons approximately 35 inches long. Use semi transparent fabric ribbon and two or three different shades of colors to give them an iridescent effect.
Step 4 : glue the tentacles all round the jellyfish.
Step 5 : Hang them on the wall or ceiling using white thread or clear fishing line.
