Our Frozen-themed mini Christmas tree and Frozen ornament tutorial have been so popular that I wanted to post some close-ups of all the ornaments and give you some more specifics on the paint colors and embellishments used! If you have any questions please post them in the comments!
For the tree topper I used a slightly larger wooden frame than I did for the other ornaments. I painted 3 coats of paint: the first coat in #32014 “Pool” by Martha Stewart Crafts (Multi-Surface SATIN Acrylic Craft Paint), and the last two in #2588 “Ice Blue” by Folk Art (Metallic Acrylic Paint). After finding an image of the two sisters together, I followed the same steps as I did for the ornament tutorial, here. For the decorations I used some felt snowflake stickers I had found at Michael’s and some flower gems stickers and small blue circle gems. Read more about the inspiration for the tree topper here! To attach the topper I tapped two pieces of ribbon (about 5 inches long) onto the bottom half of the back of the topper and it is super-easy to tie onto the top branch to secure!
I made 4 ornaments, two for each sister and one in each of their signature outfits (only the tree topper had both sisters together). I found this image of Ana in her coronation gown outfit and I was inspired by the bright patterned wall paper and her pretty pink fan. For Ana’s ornaments I went with these round wooden frames with flower cut outs (found at Michael’s). I painted the frame the same color as the Frozen Photo Booth Frame Prop, #233 “Wild Orchid” by DecorArt Americana Acrylic Paint (that I picked up at JoAnn’s), but you can also find it here. This paint color is thin and requires more coats than others, so be sure to do a minimum of 4 coats for good coverage. To finish I used some sticky-back rhinestone stickers (you can find them at Michael’s, they are sold in long lines for boarders, I just cut them out individually). Please see my Frozen Ornament Tutorial here for detailed instructions.
For this Ana ornament, in her signature snow outfit, I used #302 “Purple Pizzaz” by DecorArt Americana Acrylic Paint (that I also picked up at JoAnn’s), you can buy it online here. I only needed two coats in this color and I embellished with the same rhinestone sticker embellishments I used for Ana’s pink ornament above!
For Elsa’s coronation dress ornament I used #402 “Light Blue” by FolkArt Acrylic Paint I bought at Michael’s. I did three coats in this color and paid close attention to paint the insides of the laser cut-outs on the frame. For embellishments I used some gem flower stickers from Michael’s and some gem snowflake stickers I found at Hobby Lobby. For detailed ornament instructions, see tutorial here.
For Elsa’s “Let it Go” dress ornament I used #2925 “Ink Spot” by FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint, that I bought at Michael’s. I did two coats of this color since it has good coverage. I embellished with a set of snowflake gem stickers from Hobby Lobby–you get both styles in one package! Check the tutorial for the complete directions to make this ornament!
I made two flower ornaments for the tree–using the same method as I used for the pennant flags for the Frozen Party backdrop and Frozen Photo Booth frame prop. Since the tree had some snowflake ornaments for Elsa, I wanted to make sure Ana was represented by her signature flowers. I found these tulip wood cut outs at Michael’s back in the spring. I painted one in “Purple Pizzaz” and one in “Wild Orchid” (both by DecorArt Americana). I then used craft glue and a paint brush to adhere the glitter. The glitter is “Fairy Dust” Tinsel Glitter by Recollections (found at Michael’s). I finished with a pink and purple gem flower sticker by Recollections (also found at Michael’s).
