Mermaid Message Board


Mermaid sequin fabric
Hot glue gun
Gold spray paint
Gold glitter spray paint

1. Remove the insert from the frame and spray paint it with gold and glitter spray paint.
2. Cut a rectangle of mermaid sequin fabric that matches the length of the frame, but is a few inches longer at the top and bottom.
3. Hot glue the fabric to the cardboard insert, pulling it tight so the fabric is secure and flush with the backing.
4. Place the insert back in the frame.
5. Spray paint shells gold and hot glue them to the corners of the frame. Add pearls, beads, and crystals as desired.
