Recycled Jellyfish Windsock

This recycled Jellyfish Windsock is fun to make and recycles for the good of our earth too. It will hang around and remind everyone that there are many things we can do to reuse items we might otherwise throw away.

Supplies

Empty clear plastic soda or juice bottle
2 wiggle eyes
Ribbon
Squeeze Bottle Paint

Instructions

Cut off the top half of the plastic bottle. You will be using the bottom half. Cut edge in a wavy line.

Punch holes all around edge to hang ribbon from.

Poke 2 holes in top and thread a ribbon through. Tie into a knot to form a loop to hang the windsock.

Squeeze some paint inside the bottle to make squiggly lines. Use different colors to make it bright. Allow to dry.

Cut a long length of ribbon for every hole you punched and tie a knot in one end of each. Put each ribbon through a hole, going from inside the bottle so your knot on each will be on the inside.

Glue on wiggle eyes. Hang your jelly fish windsock so the breeze makes it blow.

I'm a homeschool mom of six. My family has been homeschooling for about eleven years. And, each year, we've learned a little more about having fun, and spending less, while learning more. It's great to be a homeschooler!
