DIY Mermaid Headband


What you will need:

Seashells you collected or bought
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Gun Sticks


1. Put your headband on your head and hold onto where your ears are. Place tape on the the edge and then begin placing your seashells and glue the top and bottom where the seashell will touch the headband, hold firmly for at least ten seconds.

2. When placing the next shell, put on previous shell, either 1/4 or 1/2 way depending on how many shells you want to put on.

3. Place on your head and make sure that the shells don’t cut your ears.

Note: When you put the headband on, you may hear a cracking sound and the glue might pop. You will want to leave it alone as long as it is only one shell. When the headband expands it will need the room to then lay back on your head.


Enjoy your cute headband and feel even more in tune with your mermaid self!

P.S. Every time I wear this, I get compliments and it is a great conversation starter for something that can cost you less than $5.00 to make!
