You can create Christmas decor using any theme right?! I think so! As little girls, my sisters and I spent countless hours playing pretend that we were mermaids. We would take the pillow covers off of our pillows and put them over our legs, then narrate an underwater world to life. 🐚
Playing make believe with my sisters are my most cherished childhood memories and trust me … we have TONS of stories!
While I was photographing the Hotwheels Christmas Wreath DIY I was thinking about what a fun wreath would be for a little girl (if she didn't care for cars) and I was SOOOO very excited when the word MERMAIDS!!!!! came into my mind. I got right to work and hand drew + cut out all of these little underwater ladies out of foam, got to gluing them together and started attaching them to this beautiful white wreath.
// Are there any seashell collectors out there? 🙋🏻 I spend hours collecting shells on the beach when I get a chance to go and my collection is finally being put into good use! I picked some of my favorites and painted them with watercolors.
// This part was fun! I wasn't sure how the paint would adhere to the shells but I was pleasantly surprised at the richness of color that I got and the texture in the shells made each of them a beautiful piece of art!
// I glued these shells on with a glue gun around the mermaids, attached some mini trees and DONE!
* If you love and want to re-create this wreath but don't want to hand draw all your mermaids, comment "DIY PLEASE" below and I will draw out a free downloadable template for you to print for them! I will include it (along with a few instructions to make them) into this post for you to access it! Happy Christmas memory making loves! * ❤️❄️🐠
