Beachy Jellyfish Wall Art
Take a trip to the beach without leaving home. Gather up your favorite beads and some store-bought seashells and create your own Beachy Jellyfish Wall Art. Crafty wall decor designs can help transform a boring space without breaking the bank.
- Beads in various sizes, natural and coastal colors
- Stretchy elastic jewelry cord
- 1 seashell
- 5-inch square canvas
- Cream colored paint
- Hot glue gun
Paint the canvas with one coat of a cream colored paint of your choice. Set it aside to dry.
Cut 3 pieces of elastic cord, about 9-inches each. Take one of those cords and thread a medium sized bead onto the end. Run the cord back through the bead and second time and tie a knot. Turn the cording so that the knot lines up with the hole in the bead. This will allow the end bead to hang correctly with the rest of the beads.
Thread beads onto the cord however it pleases you. I varied sizes, putting 4-5 seed beads in between the larger beads to give it variation. You want to have about 4-5 inches of beads on the cord. Tie off the final bead by running the cord through the bead twice and tying. Repeat with the other two cords.
Position the beaded cords on the canvas. I found it easiest to tie all three together at the top. Once you know where you want them, trim any extra cording from the bottom and top and tack down with hot glue. Hot glue the shell over the top of the bead cords. Hang!

How neat! I read through the simple instructions. It seems like a good Girl Scouts craft. You really don't have to be artistic for this or have any kind of creative ability. Just look at the picture and copy it! A pretty creative idea using the big shell as the jellyfish. I like being able to pick my canvas color too, to coordinate with my room decor color.
