Mermaid Shadow Box


  • 12"x12" white shadow box
  • 1 sheet of 12"x12" glitter paper
  • Mermaid vinyl of your choice
  • Glue
  • Your choice of the following: small shells, sea glass, starfish, sand dollars, green tulle


  1. Clean the glass of your shadow box.
  2. Apply your vinyl according to package instructions.
  3. If you want the effect of seaweed in your frame, cut strips of tulle and glue onto the glitter paper.
  4. Put a layer of shells or sea glass (or both!) along the bottom of your frame. Note: tile frame slightly away from you as you do this so that it doesn't fall out.
  5. Tuck in starfish and/or sand dollars.
  6. Put in the glitter paper background, and close up your frame.
