How to Make an Cute Ariel Doll Craft

King Triton himself would be happy to receive this beautiful paper doll craft, made using our free downloadable template.

Just print out the PDF, colour in the clothes, cut them out, and attach them to your favourite princess paper doll using double-sided tape or glue.


To make this Ariel paper doll, you will need:


1. Select a paper for the skin tone you prefer, then select orange, purple and two different shades of green coloured craft papers for this craft.

2. Trace the hair pattern on to the orange paper, the body base on to the paper selected for the skin tone; trace the fin and tale on mint and green coloured paper and the top on purple paper.

Cut out the traced patterns neatly.

3. Cut a slit along the traced line inside the hair template.

4. 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 correctly. 

5. Attach the fin pattern at the bottom of the tail shape. 

6. Attach the top pattern at the top side of the body shape and the tale pattern below the top, on the body base.

7. Use a green marker pen to trace scalloped patterns on the tale pattern.

Then use a black maker to draw the eyes, nose and mouth and a blue or green marker to fill the eyes of the paper Ariel doll.
