Parents can have little to no crafting experience to help!  As well as mermaid tails to wear and essential accessories, there is also a Mermaid Cake, the perfect centrepiece for any Under-the-Sea Party!

Projects include Aquarium Puppets, a Sea-Shell necklace, a lovely Mermaid Blanket, a sparkly Fishtail Pencil Case, a snazzy Clamshell Trinket and an awesome Triton’s Crown and Spear.

What I thought of the Mermaid Craft Book

I love these craft books from Laura and Tia, and I'm so pleased to see a Mermaid book come out just in time for summer.  Living near the beach, we have access to a lot of shells, and I'd never thought before of making a wreath with them!  But that is one of my first 'to do' crafts.

Having used these books as guides before, I know we will be OK making the items in the book just by following the instructions, they are so clear and precise you are not likely to go wrong.

I am also very much looking forward to making a Mermaid blanket!

I've put together a video for you to see the book in more detail and how excited I am to have received it.

Do let me know your thoughts, and if any craft ideas pop out to you.
