Colorful fish-shaped pendant

Si Te gusta recycle materials this is a great idea. With egg cartons, you can make small bowls where the children can cut. Then we will use acrylic paint to color each of the cartons.

Then a fun structure will be formed with fish shape This craft is great so that children can also hang this animal. Do you want to know how it is done?

The materials that I have used for this fish-shaped pendant:

  • Cardboard with cavities, in this case the one for the egg cartons is ideal. We need 7 cavities.
  • 8 different tempera colors. In this craft we have chosen: white, black, pink, orange, yellow, pink, orange, green and blue.
  • Thick brush for painting and a thin brush.
  • A decorative rope.
  • A sharp wooden stick to pierce the pieces.
  • Scissors.
  • A piece of decorative paper to make a label.
  • A small hole punch.
  • Two large plastic eyes for crafts.

You can see this craft step by step in the following video:

First step:

We cut out seven cavities of the cartons. We have to give a rounded shape to all of them, but only one, we will leave you with a few long spikes around it. These peaks will be the ones that will simulate the tail of the fish.

Second step:

We paint the bowls that we have cut. Each one of a different color. The bowl that is larger with the peaks to the sides, we will paint black. Then when it dries we will paint some white stripes.

Third step:

We choose the bowl painted red and we will glue the two eyes with the help of hot silicone.

Fourth step:

With the help of the sharp stick we pierce the bowls making a central perforation.

Fifth step:

We take the rope and we passed it where we have pierced. We leave enough rope below so that we can put a label that we will cut freehand. We will pierce this label with the punching machine and we will also pass the rope and knot it. We will keep in mind to tie the black bowl that is below so that the entire structure does not come down.

Step Six:

The idea is that the structure is all fixed, Let a little string hang down and at the end hang the label. So that we can hang this fish we will also leave rope up and give it a small shape so that it can be hung.
