Today I am going to show you how to make an Elsa crown from the amazing Frozen movie. We are big fans of the movie around here and I knew I could whip up this crown in 15 minutes or less. This is a part of the Craft Lightning series this week and you can see more easy Halloween crafts on the round ups from day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4. This is also part of an 80 handmade costume blog hop. That is right! Scroll to the bottom of this post to get tons of ideas for making your own Halloween costumes.
To make an Elsa crown you will need:
Please note that this project is a part of my design team status with DecoArt and I am compensated for my participation. However all projects and opinions are my own.
- Phoomph For Fabric Stiff Blue
- DecoArt So Soft Glitter Fabric Paint in Sapphire Blue and Turquoise Sparkle
- Fabric glue or sewing machine
- Craft knife
- White fabric (can be a remnant)
- Printable Elsa crown template
Phoomph is a self adhesive felt sheet. Be sure you have the stiff version for this project as you will want your crown to stand up. Apply your white fabric to one side of the Phoomph sheet. Set your template over the top of the sheet. Protect your work surface under the Phoomph. Score through the template and through the top layer of fabric on the Phoomph sheet. Don’t worry about cutting all the way through we will do that later.
Cut the crown portion away from the other components with scissors. Apply white fabric to the self adhesive Phoomph on the back of the crown only!
Use scissors to cut around the crown and components where you scored using the craft knife. Paint one side of your crown with the Sapphire Blue paint.
Paint the fabric side of the components with the Turquoise Sparkle paint. Allow the crown and components to dry completely.
Remove the adhesive backing from all components and stick them in place on the crown as shown below.
Cut your elastic to length (use the wearer to gauge how long you need this to be. Then use fabric glue or your sewing machine to secure to the ends of the crown.
Your Elsa crown is ready to wear on Halloween or just to play dress up around the house. Your little Disney princess will love pretending she is in the movie Frozen.
Grab your supplies and in just a few minutes you can make an Elsa crown for your child…or yourself…I won’t tell!
