Anyone else kind of suck when it comes to costumes? Do you also end up resorting to a black cat or a skeleton every year because it’s easy (and everything you own is black)? No?
While scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration a while back I stumbled upon mermaid crowns. Some were ridiculously complex, some were dainty and delicate, but all had the same basis: a whole lot of shells. I had never considered trying to dress up as a mermaid for Halloween, but I was so drawn to how dreamy all the tiaras looked (and how easy it seemed like they’d be to make), that it was worth a try!
All together, the crown took me maybe two hours to put together (streaming movies from here slowed me down). Paired just right with a fish hook earring, soft waves, blue makeup, and some netting, and you’ve got yourself a mermaid queen.
