DIY Mermaid Crowns

We can believe in magic, but we can also create our own!

This DIY mermaid crown will bring a sparkle to the eye that could grant any wish. Coming together to make this mystical tiara will not only make a great  “Mommy and Me” moment, but let your little princess explore an endless treasure of creativity and confidence! 

  • Supplies Needed
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Plastic Crowns
  • Sea shells
  • Large Starfish shells
  • Glittery paints in your color of choice, we used sparkly purples, and mermaid teals, and iridescent.
  • glue gun

To start, enlist a few friends, pour some wine, and get started! We wrapped the plastic crowns with silver pipe cleaners. The kids can definitely help you with this task if they are gentle…. With that said, Gia did not help with this step.

We painted shells of varying sizes, with a couple of coats of different color paints until we reached our desired look. (Kid Friendly step, Gia did assist) This was such a relaxed activity for us to do together, and gave us the opportunity to talk about our day and more.

Once the paint dried, we heated up the glue gun and applied the shells to the crowns. Just remember the more shells you add the heavier the crown will be.

Gia loved the end result!
For the setup of the Mermaid area, we used a net over a plastic tablecloth. Staying with the mermaid, ocean theme, we used goldfish crackers, and treasure chests to decorate.
The girls had so much fun decorating the treasure chests, it was a incredible craft.
