Christmas in August (well, I guess that’s a bit better than Christmas in July)! The great thing about a Frozen party is you can justify a cute white Christmas tree anytime of the year! Here is my take on a Frozen Christmas tree! Inspired by this pin here, I decided to take it in a more handmade direction! This was, hands-down, my favorite Frozen project so far!
The design themes in Frozen are undoubtedly snowflakes and flowers. I wanted the tree to represent the two sisters and their associated elements (Elsa to snowflakes and Ana to flowers). For the tree topper I found these iridescent jeweled flower stickers that I alternated with felt snowflakes to represent the two sisters. I added a dusting of glitter to the insides of the laser-cutouts on the frame after I painted it a metallic frosty blue! I finished off with a quick Google image search and printed and cut out their portrait to glue into the frame!
I have a thing for themed Christmas trees (check out my Chinese New Year tree project here)! Ever since I was a young girl I would decorate a small Christmas tree in my room for my younger brothers and I and we called it “Mini Christmas.” I guess you could say I’ve never grown out of the tradition! Since Frozen is a decidedly Christmas-y movie, I felt no shame in adding a little tree to my Frozen party display! And since there were no Frozen ornaments to be found back in May, I headed over to my local craft stores to see if I could create some of my own!

Luckily I didn’t have to make everything myself! I got these already finished and glittered wooden snowflakes at FactoryDirectCraft.com for $0.99 a piece (for more info read through here) and I finished them up with more of the iridescent flowers I had used on the tree’s topper. You can find the small white glitter snowflakes here! The pretty plastic icicles are also from Factory Direct and come in a box of 15 for only $1.99!
I filled out the tree with a white feather garland and tulle pom poms (I found at Michael’s). I also used the white shimmer poms from the packages I used for the backdrop (see here for more info). Finally, I found some flocked patterned cardstock at Michael’s that I cut into diamonds and stuck an iridescent gem sticker in the middle (I glued some ribbon to the back to be able to hang them as ornaments).
This is the perfect DIY craft for you and your daughter and would look lovely displayed in a girl’s bedroom during the Christmas holiday! I also love the idea of making the Elsa and Ana ornaments as gift tags for Christmas gifts!
