How to Make a Mermaid Wand
We put together this under the sea mermaid wand craft with a few simple supplies we already had on hand. We found these materials in our leftover stash from other projects. Free and low-cost crafts? Yes, please!
Some of the items included a few different colors of ribbon and tulle, a starfish we cut out from cardboard, and a straight twig we found outside while scavenging for our twig tree craft.
With several knots, a dash of glitter, and a spot of hot glue, we created our magical mermaid wand in a few simple steps.
Let’s not waste any more time; it’s time to start crafting!
