It’s been dreadfully hot where I live in the US, so I’ve been spending what little free time I have indoors in the AC. I sadly don’t live near the beach, but I figured if I found some mermaid crafts to make, I could at least (kind of) bring the water to me!
Binc Bonc continues to be one of my top favorite sources for DIY videos, and it’s not a surprise why if you check out their needle felt mermaid tutorial. I think it would make a cute little bag charm!
Likewise, PolymomoTea’s channel is a great place to find unique clay and resin tutorials. I really enjoy how Alex incorporates both into the projects; the mermaid sea shell terrarium tutorial uses both clay and resin, and is probably one of my top favorite DIYs from the channel.
For a hoop embroidery project, check out the mermaid kit from Stitchonomy (EU). It’s a little higher in price, but it does include all the tools and supplies you will need to make the piece, including needle, thread, and embroidery hoop. I love how beautifully detailed it is!
If you’re looking for a simpler felt sewing project, TheBannerBoutiqueUK has a very adorable digital mermaid garland pattern available for purchase. I would definitely use this all summer for décor, but it’d also be a cute idea for a summer party.
It would be ridiculous to make this list without including some version of a merkitty craft! An adorable amigurumi project option that’s worth checking out is the crochet amigurumi merkitty digital pattern by IDreamofYarnShop. It’s quite inexpensive and so, so cute!
