DIY Mermaid Crown: use some shells, faux pearls, hair bands and hot glue to create your own beautiful Mermaid Crown. Perfect for dress up, or as part of a Mermaid Party!
We made these easy and fun Mermaid Crowns for our Mermaid Birthday Party. They were the perfect mermaid accessory and the girls loved making them and wearing them.
These are great for dress up or any mermaid themed party.
- sea shells
- hair bands
- hot glue
How To Make a Mermaid Crown:
We started by laying out a design of sea shells.
When we were happy with the design we hot glued them on to the hairbands. Adding in some pretty faux pearls as the last step.
Keep in mind that you don’t want anything poking downward that would be uncomfortable when you’re wearing it. Also, you want the crown to be able sit on your head without tipping over and falling off, so keep your design balanced. The shells can get kind of heavy.
Also you can decide whether you want the hair band worn further back on your head and the design on the very top, or the hair band worn more forward and the design angled to sit up slightly like a crown.
Experiment a little and see what you like. 😉
With your own beautiful DIY Mermaid Crowns, life really is a party!
