So what are you waiting for? Don’t “swim” away from this crafty tutorial. Let’s dive right in and make some one-of-a-kind pieces today!

DIY FISH CRAFT SUPPLIES:

  • Jumbo Craft Sticks  (3 per each fish)
  • Wiggle Eyes
  • Kid Craft Scissors
  •  Felt Glue
  •  Felt Sheets
  • Small Pom Poms
*Thiskids craft pack would be great to use for this project. It includes chennille stems, pom poms and wiggly eyes.


Step 1. First grab three craft sticks {three per fish} and glue them together to look like a triangle. Set aside to let it dry completely. Repeat for each DIY fish craft you want to make.



Step 2. While those are drying, grab your felt and cut a triangular shape that will be placed within the craft stick frame and be the body of the fish. At this time, you should also cut out some fins, fish lips and a tail out of the remaining felt.



Step 3. Next you will want to glue the felt pieces to the craft stick frame. Repeat for each piece.



Step 4. Now you are ready for the final step – embellishments! Let kids take full control and decorate their DIY fish however they like! We used small pom poms to decorate the fins but you can also use glitter, rhinestones and even buttons to decorate yours!




Once you are done decorating your DIY fish, set them all aside to let them dry completely before displaying proudly!!!
