DIY Mermaid Skirt Essentials

For a Nuffnang event, Le Misch had several themes to choose from: Underwarter; Hawaiian; Jungle; and Brittish Tea Party. It came to no surprise that she chose to be a mermaid. It was not exactly the easiest and I simply refused to buy a character themed one from the toy store. So we did a little research online and found one that was fairly easy to make using materials we already have at home. And viola, a non-restricting mermaid skirt that that cost me nothing but is definitely worth something when worn with such delight. 

She was so happy to have a hand in creating this costume and she completed her mermaid look herself with creations from her jar of beads.

Want to try it at home? Find instructions here. Enjoy!
