Are you a fan of the Little Mermaid? Do you want to become Ariel for a party or Halloween? In this guide, we will show you how to make an Ariel costume from scratch. This do it yourself costume is easy to create, and you don’t need any special skills for this.

What You Will Need:

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1: The Top

The first step is to create the top part of the costume. Take your green fabric and measure it around your body, from under your arms to your waist. Cut the fabric to size, leaving enough space for the seams.

Cut a shell-shaped design from your purple fabric. Glue the shell to the front of the green fabric using the glue gun. Let it dry completely.

Step 2: The Skirt

To create the skirt, cut long strips of green fabric. The strips should be around twice the size of your waist measurement. Sew the strips together to create a long, wide piece of fabric.

Use the glue gun to attach felt or foam sheets cut into fish scales shapes to the bottom of the skirt. Arrange them in a pattern to look like fish scales. Let the glue dry completely.

Step 3: The Accessories

To complete the look, put on the red wig. If you wish, you can add a headband with seashells or pearls. Create a bracelet using the elastic band and seashells or pearls.
