Take a look at this clever upcycled creation by my friend Cecilia.
She used a previously-loved Christmas tree and turned it into a lovely mermaid, complete with sea-life accessories. Cecilia has a business painting furniture (that chest in the picture is one of her projects) and is generally a crafty kind of gal. She is taking orders for custom mermaid trees.
