Yesterday we shared our darling magical DIY Unicorn Pumpkin. Today, it’s time to show you how to make a DIY Mermaid Pumpkin! We used our trusted hot glue gun, card stock paper and felt. We also used a mermaid plate for the crown and added shells and star fish. The tail is actually a printed mermaid napkin over card stock paper. Head over to Oriental Trading’s FUN365 for the full tutorial. Our girls love these unicorn and mermaid pumpkins and we are feeling like we might see these faux pumpkins live on in the house well after Halloween. Ha!
If you haven’t used faux pumpkins as Halloween decor, you are missing out. The faux pumpkins not only last throughout the entire month of October, but you can use them year after year.
