I don't ever re-post my old posts on this blog, but my Sparkly Mermaid Tail tutorial has been getting lots of views and comments lately, and I've been getting thank you emails from AWESOME people who have made tails for their kid's dress up box, their kid's mermaid-themed dance routines (OMG, I got an email filled with pictures and they were so awesome!) and Halloween costumes.
Since I have many new crafty readers since last fall, I thought I'd link to my SUPER easy and ridiculously cute mermaid tail tutorial for those who haven't seen it, but might be interested:
For Halloween last year, I made a sea-junk necklace out of yarn (just a braid of about 15 pieces of yarn), fake flowers and beads, which I hot glued on, and dangly bits of left over sequin fabric and organza, which I also tied into their hair. It took about 5 minutes to make, and the girls loved them!
The girls were heavily complimented, and scored major amounts of candy (which I ate most of... shhhh... don't tell them) so the costume was definitely a success.
Now I just need to figure out what to make for Halloween this year...
