Calling all Mermaid Lovers!

Hello! I went to Kirkland’s this weekend and found a lot of amazing mermaid decor!!! If you’re looking for great affordable pieces, I highly suggest you check out Kirkland’s!  Here’s a few things they have featured on their website, but they have more available in store!


Mirror, Mirror on the wall

Hello!  Through my crafting adventures, I’ve been trying to refurbish things that I already have to make them fit with the decor of my home.  I recently took a plain old mirror and gave it a coastal twist!

I started by covering the mirror portion with paper and then used gold spray paint to coat the wooden frame.  I used a stencil to trace the semi circle scales and then used different shades of acrylic paint to paint the scales.  Once the painting was completed, I used a little glue and glitter to create a few sparkle scales.

I love the final product!  It’s beautiful!  I hope you enjoyed!!

Mermaid Monogram

Hello! This craft wasn’t as easy as I was hoping it would be, but I’m still happy with how it turned out!

What you’ll need:

  • Monogram
  • Spray paint
  • Acrylic paint
  • Shells
  • Sea glass
  • Twine
  • Fishnet stockings

I started by spray painting the monogram using a mixture of silver and gold paint. Initially I tried to secure the fishnets over the monogram and then paint, but that didn’t work so well. I then used the fishnets as a stamp to try to create the scales. Didn’t turn out perfect, but I’m still really happy with it!  To finish it off, I added seashells, a twine bow, and sea glass. Happy crafting, y’all!
