Today’s reader feature is this Beautiful Fairytale Mermaid Decor, submitted by our friend Karen Johnson. Karen used a wooden bead display tray as the base to create this piece. She first painted the entire piece with a sea green color chalk paint. Karen then picked out the perfect images that she wanted to use which included my Antique Mermaid Ornament, Mystical Sea Horse, Vintage Lobster, Antique Fish, and Vintage Crab image. She resized each image to the desired size, printed them out, and then tore or cut them to size. Karen then used a dark wax on each image for protection, durability, and to create an aged look. Using PVA glue she placed some of the images onto the tray base, and some on the top. For her final touch, she added some shells and bits of coral using EVO-Stik Wood Adhesive. A beautiful piece that would look great for that Beachside home!
