Free Mermaid Cake Topper SVG Template With A Moveable Tail

Who doesn’t love a mermaid? They are the thing of fairytales, Disney movies and all things glittery and sparkly. Thus I have created this gorgeous Free Mermaid Cake Topper SVG Template set, with a choice of 4 mermaid skin colours so that all little mermaids can enjoy my mermaid cake topper. And even better it has a moveable tail. Well, how else could she swim otherwise?

Being a mum to boys who are football mad, the mermaid phase is one that has passed me by, however I get so much joy out of making sparkly and pretty things, probably more so because of all the years of football, Star Wars and superhero parties. I adored every minute of it, but sometimes a little sparkle and pink just makes you smile.

Tips And Advice For Cutting Your Mermaid Cake Topper SVG

Patry ideas for mermaid lovers

To Build Your Mermaid Cake Topper

Check out my in-post video to see me build the mermaid.

Start by attaching the Mermaid printable to the glitter hair offset with sticky pads and if you chose to cut a flower for the hair add that too.

Next glue each tail section to the corresponding back section, they should fit exactly. Then make a tiny hole in the top and bottom of each tail section and connect together with brads. You will want so secure them tight but not too tight that the tail doesn’t move.

Use brads to attach your tail so its moveable

Now attach the top section of the tail to your mermaid body, flip over and glue the straw to these two sections. The rest of the tail wants to move freely. And that’s it you are ready to go, unless you want to add some Nuvo Dots for decoration.
