How to turn your princess into a mermaid

My littlest princess has been begging for a mermaid tail all summer long. I found a super easy mermaid tail idea and thought now this is something I could do!

First I picked out an inexpensive towel that had a cute pattern.

Then I added sticky back VELCRO to the two ends of the top portion of the towel so that it would fit securely and easily around my princess's waist. 

To create the mermaid tail divide the bottom of the towel in two equal potions and wrap two pony tail holders around each section.

Voila! Now you have a mermaid princess! MY little princess is now ready for her cousin Nicholas's birthday/swim party today! 


  1. Way better than on the Parent's magazine. They must have used your idea I take it. I understand better than their directions and maybe it is the same. I want to do one for my Christmas Ocean theme. Love this simple idea. Thanks for sharing.
