DIY: Halloween Mermaid-Style

Procrastination at its best is when you have TWO DAYS before Halloween and grab everything around your house to create your own costume!

For all you merbabes at heart, this one is for you. Put your own twist on it, it’s quick and affordable — not to mention you could use it for so many other occasions, because who doesn’t need a crown on a regular basis. BOW DOWN, boyfriends.

WHAT YOU NEED: 
– Wire ribbon that you will cut into 3 ft. strips >> We recommend Seafoam Blues & Greens, we also mixed in sparkly ribbon!
– Assorted shells & Starfish
– Hot glue gun + glue sticks
– Scissors

STEP 1 
-Knot three pieces of ribbon together at their ends.
-Braid the 3 ribbon pieces to fit the circumference of your head (a little over a foot should do).
– Knot the braid at the end.

STEP 2
– Glue your shells onto the braided ribbon
– We encourage you to get creative & use more than shells. These crowns look great with beads, sequins, flowers and any other embellishments that fit your mermaid style!
– Cone-shaped shells are our favorite because they make that royal crown shape!

STEP 3 
– Tie or glue extra pieces of ribbon to the end knot of the braid
– Join both ends of the braid and glue together

STEP 2: 

Cut out an estimated 100 leaves in (3) different patterned fabrics, once you’re done with that spray each fabric piece with fabric stiffener. Use this stencil link http://ow.ly/qKsFE 

Once the fabric is hardened, you can begin gluing the matching shaped leaves together (making sure the fishing line is in between so they have a front and back fabric.

STEP 3:

Glue sticks down fishing line leaving space for the illusion of the sticks falling from the ceiling. Once that is finished glue a second stick on top of the one stick to give a layered look to the garland. Make around 15 strands for a fuller look.

STEP 4:

Begin hanging one end of fabric & spray painted leaf & stick strands the to the farthest left end of the rod of your curtain to the farthest right end of the rod making a scalloped look, next to that string begin hanging the other strands in front of the last strand.

What’s great about this leaf curtain is that you can use it as part as your curtain decor or even as a garland, that way you can customize it to fit over in your living room, bed room, as a garland on your fireplace, above a window, across a wall – whatever you’d like. Get creative with what you attach to yours and make a point to feel yourself relax as you put it together. HAPPY FALL!
