|Ruby Mermaid |
Don't throw away those old fan blades just yet! I have had them in our shed for some time now just waiting to resurrect them in some sort of creative way!
Hubby has been asking me to make him a mermaid since he retired five years ago, thus he got to name her!
Somehow Ruby Mermaid, seemed to fit her personality!
I used leftover house paints along with tongue depressors for her arms along with wooden coffee stirrers for her hair and a few popsicle sticks for aded width and texture! Shells for her bra and old jewels for added embellishment. Wooden lattice for her tail. Starfish provided and handmade by the sea!
A few coats of sealer and she is now waterproofed as any mermaid should be!
Amazing what you can do with a few throw away objects and a little glue!
She resides quite proudly on the side of our shed door!
