It’s been all about mermaids in my home this week. I started off painting my face and donning a long blonde wig. It was a bit of mistake.
Looking carefully at the picture above you will see I’m wearing a flower garland.
It’s what I used to make a pretty mermaid crown to be used at parties where a mermaid theme is called for. It has countless applications, for gracing the birthday girl’s head as she is crowned Queen of the Mermaids, to storytelling and game playing.
I took that same old flower garland that I’ve had kicking around my studio for ages and wired on shells and extra seaweed. I’ve crocheted a gold fish and starfish or two and added them also. Small shells were glued on with contact adhesive and glossed over with pearly pink nail polish and sprinkled with glitter.
Ribbons in shades of sea green and blue were tied to the back.
I think it looks darling.
I can’t wait to use it at the next mermaid party.
