Step 1: Cut the egg box up into sections. Carefully make a hole in the top of one section with a sharp pencil point. This will be your jellyfish’s bell.
Step 2: Cover your model with tissue paper or fabric. Glue it down and trim it to length. Make sure you can still see the hole at the top. Stick on lace, beads and other decorations if you wish. Set aside to dry.
Step 3: To make your jellyfish’s tentacles, cut some lengths (measuring roughly 30cm) of ribbon, cord, sequins and lace, or strips of fabric. Lay them on the table next to each other.
Step 4: Cut a long piece of yarn and use it to tie the ribbons together halfway along their length. The yarn will also be your hanging thread. Thread a bead on to the yarn so it sits on top of the tentacles.
Step 5: Next thread the yarn up through the underside of the bell – the bead will stop the bunch of tentacles coming up through the hole.Take some more beads and thread them on the string at the top.
Step 6: Hang your jellyfish up to decorate your room; it will drift nicely when a breeze catches it.

In our ‘Nature’s Music’ summer issue, we asked you to write a song or short story about a music-loving dolphin. Thank you to everyone who sent us their entries. We loved reading your stories, poems and songs.
