  • How to make a mobile. Jellyfish With Plastic Bottles - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, cut the bottom of the bottle to make the body of a jellyfish.
    You can also cut out some circle in the bottle : it will be other bodies.

    Then I model these bodies : I just have to move the plastic near the candle flame. By heating, the plastic is deformed. It's now looking like something able to blop-blop into the oceans. You might do some tries to understand how the plastic reacts.

    At this point, I make holes in the bodies to hang up my jellyfish later. It' easy as a pie : you heat up a pin or a needle and you just pierce.

    Then, fabrication of tentacles. Use the rest of your bottle. Cut some tiny strips. They don't have to be straight or regular.

    Again, I heat the plastic to deform it. To avoid burn, I use tweezers to hold the strips.

    Then, melt one tip of each tentacle to attach to the body. I put 4 or 5 tentacle for each jellyfish and voilà, you have a wonderful jellyfish!

    With only one bottle, I create 10 jellyfishes and I can do more with the top of the bottle.
