Style your mermaid hair with your dinglehopper of choice and adorn with these DIY seashell hair combs. They are sure to compliment any glamorous mermaid, of course! ♡
Although authentic shells would provide more of a natural look, I resorted to use a few Assorted Accent Shells from the Home Decor section at the dollar store. Then I painted them with acrylic, added translucent glitter, coated a layer of Mod Podge, and let them dry overnight. For an extra touch of pizzazz, I glued gems as a final touch.
As for the hair combs, I also found a simple set at the dollar store. The embellishment it had on snapped right off, so I was able to work with a clean slate. I then measure the width of the base of each shell and cut them to size using a utility knife. Afterward, I glued Gorilla Glue to the shells on to an adjacent hair comb. Once the glue has cured, these lovelies are then ready to wear and accessorize. ♡
