Elsa’s Frozen Ice Castle Hair Clip Tutorial by Kristen Hong

Materials Needed:


Frozen Elsa Ice Castle Craft Frozen Christmas Craft Felt Frozen Ice Castle Hair Clip Tutorial

  1. Cut your snowflake sequin as shown above–this will become your castle spire!
  2. Print out the Ice Castle Template above and cut out pieces with regular scissors. Trace each castle template piece on the corresponding color felt and/or glitter fabric using your permanent marker.  If you are hand-glittering your felt, do that step now.  **Hand Glittering Felt Option:  You will need a paintbrush & regular Elmer’s glue.  Take your cut piece of felt and paint on a thin layer of Elmer’s glue.  Sprinkle liberally with fine glitter in corresponding color.  Allow the piece to dry over night or at least 6 hours before continuing to step 3!
  3. First, glue the castle front to the castle back.  Then glue the door to the door frame.  Finally, glue the door embellishment chevron above the door frame and add the castle sides as shown above.
  4. Use this tutorial to cover your alligator hair clip with ribbon.  Glue the covered alligator clip to the back of the castle.  Allow the castle to fully dry (I recommend overnight) before wearing.

Note: If you chose not to use the glitter fabric then you will need to cut out another “castle back” piece out of felt and glue it behind the front piece.  This will make the castle structure stronger!

It is also perfect to wear on your next family trip to Disneyland!  Elsa and Anna make an appearance at the “Paint the Night Parade” (the new electric light parade to celebrate the Disneyland diamond celebration)!
