Mermaid Party- Make Your Own Mermaid Tails

mermaid party ideas 2

I recently featured the creative party invites we made for Leah’s mermaid party, but now I want to show you something else we created that was a hit with the little swimmers- mermaid tails made from beach towels.

Materials Needed:

  • Beach towel
  • Ribbon (long enough to tie in a bow around each girl’s waist
  • Rubber band


  1. Place a beach towel around her waist with the long part hanging down like a train of a dress.
  2. Tie your ribbon in a bow around her waist and then fold the top of the towel over to cover the ribbon and better secure the towel from slipping down.
  3. Wrap a rubber band around the end of the towel, leaving about a foot at the end. The last time you wrap it around, don’t pull the entire towel through- leave the rubber band in the center to split the towel and make your mermaid tail.

And that’s it!
