Hello my lovely fellow crafters and welcome to a new series of Hattifant Paper Crafts: Shelf sitters! And we will start of with a gorgeous little sparkly mermaid!
Of course, this post comes with a template for you to download, so you can make your own Shelf Sitter Mermaid!
After you have downloaded and printed off the template you can choose your most favorite media to work with – may it be water colors, coloring pencils, markers, even stamps would work well to create a pattern on the mermaid tail.
I used aquarell watercolor pencils – so first you color with your aquarell pencils and then add a bit of water to a brush and go over the colored areas. The result is usually gorgeous vibrant colors.
Our family LOVES glitter (don’t mention the mess though LOL) so we applied lots and lots of liquid glue and then sprinkled the glitter on top.
Ready to make your own?!
You will need:
- coloring pens, water colors, markers
- glue & glitter (if you like)
Color the mermaid to your liking add glitter as much as you want. When dried, cut out the template/mermaid and fold in suggested areas. Find a shelf to hold your mermaid! Done!
ENJOY! Wishing you a fantastic time crafting and coloring with friends and family or just by yourself. Have fun!!!
