I remember watching The Little Mermaid when it first came out on VHS when I was in elementary school. From her long, flowy red hair to her ability to swim underwater, what’s not to love?
Now that I’m a mom, I spend a lot of time watching Disney movies with my kids. It’s always so cool when my kids like Disney movies I liked growing up!
One of of our favorite Disneyland rides is Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. You sit in a little clam shell and take a little journey through iconic scenes from The Little Mermaid.
If your family loves the movie as much as I do, you’ll have fun with this DIY Little Mermaid paper doll craft. It’s the perfect thing to add to greeting cards, gift bags, or use as a little puppet!

How to Make a Princess Ariel Paper Doll:
Ariel Paper Doll Step 1:
Select a paper for the skin tone and also select 2 different shades of green, orange and purple colored craft papers for this craft. Print out the Princess Ariel template.
Trace the hair pattern on the orange paper, the body base on the paper selected for the skin tone; trace the fin and tale on mint and green colored paper and the top on purple paper. Cut out the traced patterns nicely.
Ariel Paper Doll Step 2:
Cut a slit along the traced line inside the hair template.
Ariel Paper Doll Step 3:
Take the body base cutout and slide the head part through the slit from the bottom side of the hair. Use glue to fix the position of the hair and head once they are placed nicely.
Ariel Paper Doll Step 4:
Attach the fin pattern on the fin part of the tale pattern.
Ariel Paper Doll Step 5:
Attach the top pattern on the top side of the body base and the tale pattern below the top, on the body base.
Use a green marker pen to trace scalloped patterns on the tale pattern. Use a black maker to draw the eyes, nose and mouth and a blue marker to fill the eyes of your Ariel doll.
