If you've gone to a festival, visited a Free People store, or been on the internet in the past 5 years, you are aware of the flower crown. Forever 21 Some people love them. Some people hate them. But there's a new trend in town: MERMAID CROWNS. @chelseasflowercrowns / Via instagram.com Mermaid crowns use shells, sparkles, charms, and other hints of whimsy for some serious Ariel ~vibes~. Chelsea Shiels — a Melbourne-based crafter and owner of the Etsy shop Chelsea's Flower Crowns — has garnered over 80,000 followers on Instagram from posting her beautiful creations. "For my shells, I only use suppliers who are collecting from various polluted beaches — the shells are polished and given a new life instead of being crushed and used in concrete," Shiels told BuzzFeed. "My main supplier from Australia actually donates 30% of their profits to preserving the great barrier reef." But Shiels isn't the only human who seems to be swept up by the sea circlets. @chelseasflowercrowns / Via instagram.com There are more than 4,000 posts logged under #mermaidcrown on Instagram showing people making and rocking these magical headpieces.
