It’s not a stretch to say that I absolutely adore this Fun Pom Fish Craft! So fun, so colorful, and did I mention it’s fun? So fun!
So what makes this Fun Pom Fish Craft so much fun, you might ask? Well, aside from the big googly eyes that take over the cute fish face and all the bright colors from the poms, it’s just so easy and perfect for little fingers. Simply glue randomly small and even smaller colorful poms inside of a clean jar lid. We used the size that would come off a regular marinara jar. But any small jar lid would do. It’s a great way to reuse, make pretty, and find the fun in what’s normally thrown away.
For this Fun Pom Fish Craft you will need a small, clean jar lid like the kind from glass jars of marinara as well as bottle caps from water or soda bottles. The rest of the supplies include large googly eyes, small colorful poms, colorful cardstock, glue, scissors, and a white marker.
Fun Pom Fish Craft
- Jar lids
- Plastic bottle caps
- Colorful poms, small
- Large googly eyes
- White marker
Begin by cutting the fish fins from a sheet of colored cardstock.
You will need to cut one large tail fin, with a wavy back edge, as well as 2 smaller side fins. Refer to the pic above.
Use the white marker to draw detail on the fish fins.
Glue the fish fins on the back of a clean jar lid.
Apply a layer of glue on the inside of the lid. Press a bottle cap along the front of the lid.
Then, proceed to squeeze and press as many poms as possible in the lid.
Apply glue to the top of the bottle cap and adhere a large googly eye. We used regular glue, which takes awhile to dry and stick correctly. So you may want to use hot glue if you’re looking to play with your fish soon after.
