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 sea decorations ideas and bring them to you here so you can get inspired for your under the sea party, little mermaid party, or even luau.
Fish Under the Sea Decorations
When you entered the sanctuary, the stage gave the immediate feeling of being under the sea. The sea backdrops and water effects on the top picture are just plastic tablecloths cut in strips (leaving a couple of inches at the top), and each strip stretched outward every couple of inches. I used this fun technique in my DIY Jellyfish costume also.
They added a lot of painted sea creatures, fish netting, and more ocean life decorations for more deep sea fun.
Quick and easy, this dynamic school of colorful paper fish worked beautifully to cover a large walled area. We made a sea fish cutouts template to distribute to several ladies so each fish would be exactly the same. It’s a great way to decorate a large area with an underwater scene for cheap. We almost covered the entire room! Download the fish template here:
Another large wall and a simple technique of hanging plastic tablecloths was an easy way to make waves. The Dollar store fishes were a striking and inexpensive addition. Always go check out your local Dollar store, it will probably have some perfect supplies for any under the sea themed party.
Amazing Homemade Coral Reefs
Pool noodles cut in all kinds of ways made interesting coral reefs and made great sea party decorations. The sea urchins were little foam balls pocked with toothpicks and spray painted red.
Create a stunning coral reef out of tissue paper, floral mesh, and other household items. See the tutorial on how to make a coral reef decoration.
Also, check out how to make a miniature coral reef that would make great table decorations for any party table and would delight your party guests.
More Sea Creatures Decorations
Fish and sea creatures crafted from colorful paper plates are amazingly simple and a bright way to cover a big wall. Love the black ray! What a great idea!
These jellyfish made from paper lanterns create a lot of impact. The tails are strips of plastic tablecloths ripped and stretched.
Noah’s Ark on top of the waves made with crepe paper.
You can make all of these sea party ideas without buying expensive sea party supplies. I hope you feel inspired!
