Adorable DIY Mermaid Art Trio
While browsing and shopping I stumbled upon these cute fish scale teacher aids and instantly thought they were the same size as the pink square frames I had previously found. Upon verification that they are just about the right size, I thought “woohoo! These would be so cute with a mermaid and some under-the-sea pieces from the Pazzles Craft Room Library!”
A Lovely Addition to A Little Girl’s Room or Bathroom
Turns out I was right, don’t you think? These cute little 6 by 6 inch adorned frames would make a sweet addition to a little girl’s mermaid-themed bedroom or even the bathroom. If you can’t find the fish scale teacher aids cards, try printing or layering your own scales with the Ribbon Slot Borders or Border 6 files in the Pazzles Craft Room Library which you can disassemble and use just the scalloped portions to resemble fish scales, or use the Half Circle Paper Lace.
Complete in Under An Hour
This project should take about 40 – 60 minutes since there are many small parts to cut, piece, and adhere. The color theme could be changed to deeper hues or brighter primary colors as desired to meet the decor needs of the recipient. If the frames don’t come in the colors you want, find an acrylic paint you like and paint them before beginning the project assembly. This trio can be displayed horizontally or vertically. It would look cute with a burlap ribbon behind the vertical grouping, as detailed in the instructions. Enjoy!
