How To Make It

  1. Prepare glass jar or mason jar by washing and removing all labels. Let dry.

  4. Apply hot glue to shell and press onto lid.
  5. Cut plastic straws in half, keeping the bendy half. Glue together with hot glue gun. Let dry. Extend the straws and bend in various directions to create coral.
  6. Apply hot glue to straw bunch and press onto lid so it stands up.
  7. Cut a small square of tissue paper, about 5-6 inches wide. Fold in half and make cuts about 2-3 inches deep along one side. The tissue paper might resemble a comb. Roll each section into a branch. Bend and twist to create the look of seaweed.
  8. Apply hot glue to bottom of tissue paper seaweed and press onto lid so it stands up.
  9. In a small bowl, mix colorful rocks and sand. Turn jar on its side and carefully pour rock and sand mixture inside. Don’t use too much or it will cover Dory and Nemo!
  10. Carefully place lid on jar, inserting the scene into the jar. Close tightly. Shake the jar to move the rocks and sand down to the bottom.
  11. Apply a layer of colorful washi tape to the outer edge of the jar lid.
