This cute Mermaid DIY Wand craft is just so much fun! Your little ones will love making this craft as a dress accessory or for a mermaid themed party favor.
We love doing handmade crafts and decor pieces any time we have a chance. These Mermaid DIY Wands are very fun to put together, and you can use them to help decorate your little girl’s bedroom.
You can also use this craft as an “Under the Sea” birthday party activity or party favor. It will also make a great accessory for a mermaid Halloween costume! Imagine your pretty princess waving this wand to cast spells and enjoy life.
The ideas are truly endless! You can mix up the colors based on what your child likes. You can even use shells you found on a vacation to the beach or simply buy them at a craft store. We went to Hobby Lobby and Walmart, but Amazon has the supplies for our Mermaid DIY wands as well.
