Happy #MermaidMonday, friends! We can’t divulge any details about the Promenade just yet, so I wanted to get started with providing some mermaid-themed costume inspiration in the meantime. It’s such a vast topic with so many opportunities for creativity that I can’t wait to explore and share with you! I was reminiscing with friends about how when I was young, I would create “Easter bonnets” with my mother out of baskets, shoulder pads (hey, it was the EARLY 90’s!), flowers… and seashells. I got inspired by the idea of festive nautical headwear, and every sea-queen (or king! Or princess!) needs her crown, so here are some regal headdresses, tiaras, and crowns fit for a mermaid!
Etsy is always my go-to for unique, creative, one-of-a-kind pieces (everything on this website is handmade by their merchants), so naturally there’s a plethora of custom, beautiful mermaid crowns. Styles range from conservative to couture, with a price for every budget. Check out the seller’s pages for more!

I hope you’re feeling inspired by some of these designs! There are SO many beautiful mermaid crowns out there, I may do a follow-up post featuring more designs because they’re all just SO. BEAUTIFUL! If you’d like to see more, let me know in the comments!
Youtube is a great resource for DIY videos, so if you’re feeling crafty and don’t know where to go from here, there’s plenty of videos out there to guide you. Crafting doesn’t have to drain your bank account (although it definitely can!), you can find plenty of materials in your local dollar store, get some great deals with coupons and apps like RetailMeNot, or even gathering from nature! Tutorials are out there for everyone from the crafting-impaired to veteran crafters. Take a peek at these Do-It-Yourselfers!
