Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade will show you, step by step, how to make this decoration.


Materials Needed

– “Under the Sea Friends” template: download here
– thick paper or card stock
– glue (transparent)
– thread and needle
– scissors


Step 1

Print the template on thick paper and cut out the drawings.

That is what you’ll have when you are finished.



Step 2

Take one fish and apply a layer of glue on it’s back.

… then place it’s pair on it.


Step 3

Repeat step 2 until every friend has the two sides glued.


Step 4

We will start with the last one saved. Take the rainbow colored fish and, with the needle make a hole on its top, like in the picture.

Let the thread go through the hole …

… and, when you have a little thread left, make a knot. That way, the fish won’t fall again.

Measure about 5 cm and make another knot.

This is where you will place the crab. With the needle make a hole in one jaw…

…and take him down until you reach the knot.

Make another hole in his other jaw…

That way, the little crab is secured with the rope. He will not fall again.

Do the same with the other friends.


Step 5

Make a knot around the seahorse’s tail and wrap around the rope once, take it just under his head – it is easier to use the needle here too.


Step 6

The final step: make a knot on the end of the thread.

And. look at that…. you just finished making the entire “Under the Sea” Decoration.  Isn’t it just adorable?!  Imagine how cute it will look hung up.  Enjoy it.
