Dew Drops, Starfish, and Fish Nest Oh My!
Hello Robin's Nest Readers!
I wanted to share how I made my Mermaid Hair which, of course, includes The Robin's Nest products!
I started with a few extras from the our local craft store:
Green Glitter Leaves
Pipe Cleaners in Green and Blue
Water Dew Drops
Sea Glass Tear Drops
I also needed a wig from the Halloween Express store. I decided on the hippy wig and then decided that I needed gold and glitter blue spray paint.
The Robin's Nest also has colored starfish and fishnet, so I decided to throw those in. Why not?
I started by painting mini rubber toys from the dollar store. I started with a gold layer, then added a dusting of Glitter Blue spray paint, both from Krylon.
Add the Fishnet, then de-stem the flowers, and begin gluing, and metal twisting, and weaving.... Whatever you can do to get everything to stay in one place.
Add feathers, and more flowers; twisting and weaving again.
Add a blue colored starfish.
Then glue the plastic sea animals.
The Dew Drops are a perfect detail to create a Mermaid look. Add a mini dot of Scraperfect's The Best Glue Ever, then place the Dew Drop, flat side down.
Add more Dew Drops.
And Tear Drops to the flowers for a wet look.
Pull the dreaded hair back and twist with pipe cleaners.
A closer look.
Viola! What do you think?
I hope your day is super fun and crafty!
