Fun for children and adults to make. These look pretty hanging in the house, or even better on a sunny day blowing in a gentle breeze in the garden.


  • 1 paper plate
  • paints and/or markers for colouring
  • a selection of strings and ribbon
  • large wiggle eyes
  • glue
  • sticky tape


  1. Decorate the underside of your paper bowl. You can add stickers or tissue paper too if you like.
  2. Carefully make a hole.
  3. Thread through a doubled up cord or ribbon and knot it on the other side.
  4. Use a selection of ribbons, cords, and strings for the tentacles. Cut long lengths, double them up and use sticky tape to hold them in place
  5. For the best effect, some should be curled and some straight. For curled tentacles use string from the centre of the spool or curled gift ribbon.
  6. You can hang it just as it is.
  7. Or add a pair of wiggle eyes.
  8. In the garden they make a pretty alternative to bunting.
