How to make craft

  • Draw the tail of the mermaid using pencil. Draw it on the back side of the foam and make sure it will be big enough according to the spoon that is going to be the body of the mermaid.
  • Attach the tail on the bottom of the spoon using a hot glue gun.
  • Cover one part of the bottom of the spoon with glue and pour glitter on the top.
  • Glue the spoon over the purple foam with glitters. Cut the foam leaving some space around the head of the mermaid and leave a longer piece on the one side. D
  • Divide the longer side in three pieces and create a braid out of it. Secure it at the end using glue.
  • Glue two small shells on the top of the body to create the top part of mermaid body.
  • Draw the face of the mermaid using black marker or black pen because the marker paint can sometimes gets into the wood and you are not going to get a smooth shape.
  • To make it look more realistic add some pieces of hair around the head using your favorite glue.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
