DIY MERMAID CROWNS
Every mermaid needs her crown. These easy DIY crowns make for a great party favor, or activity during the party. Plus, if you create the backdrop above you’ll be able to model them for the ‘gram!
YOU WILL NEED
- Tulle cut into strips of 8″ x 1″
- Shells of various sizes
- Hot Glue Gun or Mod Podge Glue
Take a pre-cut strip of tulle and tie a knot from the center along the headband. Continue to tie knots using alternating colors. We used two but feel free to use as many colors to your hearts’ desire!
Apply some glue to each knot to secure it to the headband.
Start attaching shells using your glue to secure. We used the larger shells in the middle, then medium and small on the sides.
There you have it, an easy, fun and pretty mermaid crown for you to wear! If you’re using these as an activity during your event – get creative! Add in some paints, or bedazzle your heart out!
