DIY mermaid and island dancer: how to do it

First, paint your toilet paper rolls peach, tan, or brown. If you don’t have any of these colors, mix orange, green, and white to create a beautiful skin color. Once the paint is dry, draw the face with a pink marker and a black marker.

Cut out the mermaid’s hair, bra, skirt, and tailpieces from the colored sheets of paper. Use your glitter glue tubes and markers to add fun details.

Notes for this DIY mermaid and island dancer: To make the mermaid and island dancer hair, simply cut out a long rectangular piece to make the fringe, and shorter pieces to make the hair. You can make several models of tails for DIY mermaid and decide at the end which one you prefer. To make the skirt, cut out a long rectangle and make fringes using scissors.
