Amazing Under the Sea Decorations

Amazing Under the Sea Decorations

Some outstanding talented people put together this amazing display of the bottom of the ocean for our Vacation Bible School. Our theme was Ocean Commotion. I attempted to take pictures of all the wonderful decorations and bring them to you here so you can get inspired for your under the sea party, mermaid party, or even luau.

When you entered the sanctuary, the stage gave the immediate feeling of being under the sea. The water effect on the top picture is just plastic tablecloths cut in strips (leaving a couple inches at the top), and each strip stretched outward every couple inches.

Quick and easy, this dynamic school of colorful paper fish worked beautifully to cover a large walled area. We made a template to distribute to several ladies so each fish would be exactly the same.

You may download the template we used below:

Another large wall and a simple technique of hanging plastic tablecloths to make waves. The Dollar store fishes were a striking and inexpensive addition.

Pool noodles cut in all kinds of ways made interesting reefs. The sea urchins were little foam balls pocked with toothpicks and spray painted red.

These jellyfish made from paper lanterns create a lot of impact. The tails are strips of plastic tablecloths ripped and stretched.

    Absolutely LOVE so many of your ideas! Going to use many of your ideas for a Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet “Cubs Under the Sea”. I wish I had an idea how much it cost to make each piece, to know whether or not I can get various materials. Also, where do you get floral mesh?? Does it come in different widths? If so, how wide do I want to purchase? Someone gave me some to make I wreath, but I think it’s not wide enough for this project. The stuff I have is probably 3 or 4 inches wide.

      Thank you for your kind comments Edwina. If you go to the Coral Reef Decoration post there’s a link for the kind of floral mesh I used. http://www.pressprintparty.com/diy/party-decorations/make-coral-reef-decoration-sea-party/
      I would recommend a 20″ wide mesh. You should be able to buy it a the fake floral department of any craft store.
      The cheapest craft in here is the paper fish school. It also has such a great impact. Have a great time decorating.
