It seems that there is no end to the giant fish population on Pinterest these days. But just in case you missed them, here is one more DIY post for making a giant fish.
- black tablecloths or sheets in the color you want your fish to be
- a pup tent
- white felt
- black felt or paper
- red paper (I used tissue because it came in large enough sheets)
- green crepe paper
- scotch tape
- safety pins or clamps
If you use cloth, the felt eyes will stick to it. I cut out two big white felt eyes. Then I cut black felt for the pupils. Felt will stick to felt. You can use black construction paper in a pinch. If you rough up one side with an eraser, it will stick to the felt.
I cut the tongue from tissue paper and taped it onto a piece of poster board for stiffness.
Then I hung "seaweed" (crepe paper attached with tape) from the roof of the tent.
