Hello, Crafters! I have a super easy mini-tutorial on how to make these gorgeous Mermaid Tail hair bows!

You can make these out of a number of materials or fabric: faux leather, glitter canvas, leather canvas, felt, foam paper sheets etc. Find amazing mermaid material on Amazon, Check out these cute printed mermaid scale canvas material. For the material I used for my Mermaid Tail Bow is Snake Skin Holographic Leather Fabric.

Whatever material you choose I’m sure it will look awesome. You can also choose to make these on your cutting machine by using my free SVG file, but I’m going to show you how to make these with my free PDF Printable Template you can grab both files here!

Here is a list of supplies you will need:

First download my free Mermaid Tail bow file, and unzip folder. Extract the Mermaidtailbow.pdf file, open and print.

Once you have the template printed out, cut each piece out along the black line.

Next get your material and lay it face down, take your template pieces and lay them over the back of your material.

    I can’t get the template to download so I can print. Can you please help me.

    • To download simply press the pink download button. If your connectioning from Facebook it won’t complete. You have to open a new web browser window and try again. Let me know if that was the problem.

  • This is beautiful. My best friend daughter is in to mermaids and I want to make this for her upcoming birthday. I have a Cricut machine do you think I would be able to cut it with it?thank you!
