DIY Ombre Fish Scale with a Mermaid Silhouette

You will need...

three of cardstock paper of any color you like
a piece of cardstock paper that you will use under the scales
scissors
something that can be used to make a circle
frame
pencil
glue

First take the back of the frame and trace around it with a pencil on to the cardstock paper that will be under the scales. Then cut it out.

Now you can take the object that you will use to make circles and trace around that onto the two colors of cardstock paper. You can also trace halve the circle since you will be cutting the full circles in halve.

Cut out all of the circles and then cut them in halve.

Take the color of circles you would like to be on top of the scales and glue them to the top edge of the cardstock paper that will be under the scales. Then you can start to overlap them and continue this for the first row.

For the second row, place the scales under the first row and continue this until you get down to halve of the piece of cardstock paper.

Once you get to halve of the paper, you just do the same thing with the scales

Make a mermaid silhouette and trace the mermaid on to a different color of cardstock paper than the scales.

Glue the mermaid to the scales.

Put the art into the frame.
