How to Make a Mermaid Letter
Step 1. Use a paintbrush to paint the entire letter blue. Let dry completely.
Step 2. Use a craft knife to cut the Printed Duck Tape® – Mermaid into pieces that fit the front of your letter.
Press the Duck Tape® onto the letter.
Step 3. Use a paintbrush to add Mod Podge to the front of the two starfish.
Sprinkle some iridescent glitter over the tops, then gently shake to remove any excess glitter. Let dry completely.
Step 4. Hot glue the larger starfish to the bottom right of your letter, and the less heavy starfish to the upper left side of the letter.
Step 5. Now add in the smaller shells, coral charms, and pearls to fill in the empty spaces. Layer them for a finished look.
Isn’t she adorable? I love all of the under the sea elements of this darling craft.
My daughter is obsessed with mermaids (yes, she takes after he mama), and this cute letter will look amazing displayed in her room!
