How To: Make Mermaid

What You Need

Starfish

Gold cord


1. Glue lengths of crepe paper streamers in alternating colors around the waistline of a child’s dress or skirt.

3. Working from bottom to top, glue to the bodice of a dress or shirt. Layer the liners length-wise, alternating colors.

4. Fold cupcake liners in half and layer them length wise along the bottoms of leggings, layering lengthwise and alternating colors. (You’ll need about two rows.)

 

How To: Make Tiara

4. For the necklace, hot glue a starfish to a length of golden cord.
