Project Instructions

Step 1 Trace the pattern from below twice - once onto white cardstock and once onto manila paper. Cut them both out, then glue them together so you'll have a more sturdy fish.

Step 2 Use markers to color your fish. Be as creative you want with colors and patterns. Outline it in blue.

Step 3 Curl up chenille stems and glue to back of fish. (You could also use glue dots to avoid drying time.)

Step 4 Glue pin to back and let dry.
