Project List: Aleene's Jewel it
Clear or iridescent 4mm to 6mm beads
Fishing line clear
This took me awhile to decide what to use on my hair. I decided on starfish for my barrettes. In the picture there's only one because my dog ate(yes, ate)the other one a day before the shoot. Just glued the starfish on with Aleene's glue to the barrette. I also glued small sized shells on another barrette and added 4mm clear or iridescent beads on them. The glue must settle for 24 hrs but its great glue.
For a hair/head band I used a belt made of out shells and sewed it on to a piece of the fabric from my skirt. Then sewed some iridescent beads on that. I also added the shell necklaces that you get at craft stores and sewed those on there too.I bought a bunch of those shell necklaces at Goodwill. This is an easy project for mermaid hair. I also have my mermaid falls(front of my head)
on along with Shahlah's head piece made for me on the sides.

Just go to your craft store to the shell dept. and you can get lots of ideas.
