Repurposed Inspiration: Mermaid Tabletop Christmas Tree

I enjoy making my own poster board cone trees and decorating them in a beachy theme.

I printed the mermaid on stiff cardstock and nestled her in between snippets of plastic coral and actual glass bubbles.

Pieces of glittered plastic “kelp” divide the decorated sections with star fish tucked in the negative space.

It was fun to experiment with the bubbles/ coral/ and starfish that are attached with hot glue.

I added another mermaid who is at work decorating the tree with her starfish!

This tree will be featured at Sunrose for the December ArtWalk!
