Introduction: Princess Sparkelina Mermaid

A cute & easy project featuring your own special little girl

Step 1: Princess Sparkelina Mermaid

I created this special mermaid from a "cutout" I bought at Michaels. It is 9" tall and made of pressed board or something like that...not wood. I used a picture of my granddaughter, Princess Sparkelina as I call her, as the face of the mermaid. I painted the top 1/2 beige, the bottom 1/2 turquoise, and glued sea glass I found on nearby beaches on the tail. The hair is made from embroidery string I had laying around. It was quite simple and came out really cute.
