Roll Out the Red Carpet: 10 Frozen-Inspired Crafts

Have you seen Disney’s latest animated film, Frozen? The Oscar-nominated film tells the story of two sisters attempting to find their place in the world and come into their own. As you might have guessed from the title, it takes place in a land that is experiencing a raging winter, including piles upon piles of snow and freezing temperatures. Kind of like Chicago this year (and Canada every year).

Although this film breaks from a few typical Disney characteristics, it heralds back to the animated musicals that made Disney, well, Disney. One of my favorite songs from the film has to be “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” It’s just too cute! As a bit of movie nut, I felt inspired by the films beautiful winter wonderland animations. From the ice castle to the glistening white snow-topped trees, I had so much “craftspiration” from the film, I just had to share it with you.

While we may not be able to turn our house into literal ice (I’m not so sure we’d like to), we can make a few beautifully frosted and snow-covered crafts to make us feel like we’re in the movie. We’ve got winter wonderland snow globes and frosted luminaries, to a few snowman crafts in honor of one of the film’s most lovable characters, Olaf the Snowman.

Let’s roll out the carpet for some of these Frozen-inspired crafts from AllFreeChristmasCrafts:

Winter wonderland crafts: Frosted Snowflake Luminaries

Stunning Frosted Mason Jar Luminaries
Chic Mason Jar Snow Globes
Winter Wonderland Bottles
Frosted Snowflake Luminaries
Frosted Glass Ball Wreath

Get Creative with Sensational Snow Craft Ideas!

It’s finally starting to get a little chilly outside, so we at AllFreeChristmasCrafts have the cold on our minds! We absolutely love snow crafts, and part of why we love them so much is because they aren’t just for Christmas! Many snow crafts are great to leave up throughout the winter. After all, it’s always a little sad to take down Christmas decorations after the holiday passes, so why not craft something that can stay up through March?

Snowflake Crafts

Crochet Snowflake GarlandDIY snowflakes are easy and fun Christmas crafts. They’re perfect for the whole family because most of us have been cutting snowflakes out of paper since we were little! Snowflake crafts can range from the truly difficult to the truly basic. This Crochet Snowflake Garland is a little more difficult than simply cutting patterns out of paper, but we have tutorials for even the most basic snowflake crafts. It’s true that no two snowflakes are the same, and these craft ideas are truly unique!

Homemade Snow Globes

In fact, they aren’t just for decorating your home! This Adorable Mini Snow Globe Necklace is a precious accessory for your next Christmas gathering! Learn how to make your own homemade snow globes with any of these fabulous tutorials.

Snowman Craft Ideas

Salt Dough SnowmenSnowmen are fun to build when the snow is perfect for packing, but what about when snow isn’t on the ground yet? And if the snow is too powdery, that’s no good for building snowmen, either. Keep snowmen around all winter when you make snowmen inside your home! These snowman craft ideas are great crafts for kids and for parents! Take these Salt Dough Snowmen for example. Mom can make the salt dough, and the kids can have fun sculpting the snowmen and adding faces, hats, and scarves!

5 Homemade Christmas Gifts That Are Fun To Eat And Create

Christmas is right around the corner and you know what that means? It is time to buy gifts! Well, that is probably how you feel at least. But there’s no reason you can’t get into the Christmas spirit and make some homemade Christmas gifts that not only work well for your budget but are also adorable. Even tasty too!  Since I not only love to eat (who doesn’t) and love to craft, I thought I would share some great edible Christmas crafts with you as well as some other great DIY Christmas gifts centered around food.

Snowman Candy Bar WrapperSnowman Candy Bar Wrapper

Who doesn’t love chocolate?! Everybody loves chocolate and nobody will complain when you give them this wonderfully festive homemade Christmas gift from Laurie Furnell. Not only is this  treat very easy to make but it works great as both a stocking stuffer or as an easy yet fun gift to give to all your co-workers and friends. You can modify this project to fit any kind of candy bar like Milky Ways (my personal favorite) or a tube-like treat like Rolos and Lifesavers. Either way, this DIY craft is great for the holidays.

Felted Sweater SuprisesFelted Sweater Hot Cup Sleeves

There’s nothing better than a hot cup of cocoa on a cold winter day. I remember the best part about playing in the snow as a child was coming inside and having a big cup of hot chocolate ready for me that was prepared by my mom. But now I am an adult and now I drink my hot chocolate differently- and on-the-go. We all now drink our delicious hot beverages from those Starbucks-type cups and this great idea by Spoonful is a fantastic and inexpensive homemade Christmas gift.

 

Candy Sleigh Candy Sleigh

 

How cute is this? From our friends over at Kaboose, this is a replica of Santa’s sleigh made entirely out of candy. Not only is this a great trinket to have around the house to add a great Christmas feel to any occasion but it is pretty easy to make and makes for a great homemade Christmas gift to give to your friends and family.

Sewn Paper Candy PouchSewn Paper Candy Pouch

This homemade Christmas gift from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle is simple to make and would work well not only to store candy but it would also be great for all the baked goods that you make. I know I always have a few extra cookies left over after I bake a batch for Santa and this easy DIY project is a perfect container to help carry the leftovers around in.

Root Deer RudolphRoot Deer Rudolph

Our friends over at AllFreeHolidatCrafts sent me this delightfully remarkable idea to turn your root beer bottles (or really any bottles that  you have lying around the house) into in inexpensive and amusing craft that the whole family can enjoy making.

For the Kids: Reindeer, Snowmen and Santa Oh My!

For all you parents out there who have heard “Is it Christmas yet?” too many times to count, here is OUR Christmas gift to you:  A bunch of easy Christmas crafts to keep your little ones occupied until Santa comes shimmying down the chimney!

With a whole week off of school, plus all that extra sugar from Christmas cookies, we know that kids are probably going to be bouncing off the walls with excitement all the way up until the 25th.  That’s why we decided to seek out the best kid-friendly craft projects to keep them occupied while waiting for the much-anticipated Big Day.

From simple ornament crafts to Santa and reindeer-themed decorations and a whole lot more, there are a bunch of easy projects that kids will love to make!  We can say that with confidence because all of these simple Christmas crafts for kids come from bloggers who have their own children, so that means these crafts are tried and true crowd pleasers, and for kids of all ages too!

One of my absolute favorite ideas from this collection of 21 Simple Christmas Crafts for Kids is this adorable Lend a Hand Christmas Tree project.

I love that kids get to get a bit messy with this craft, but not so messy that you’ll be regretting this idea come cleanup time.  Plus kids will love decorating their “trees” with fun embellishments (i.e. whatever you can find around the house).  Buttons look adorable, but I’m sure you can find a bunch of other cute things to glue onto your trees!  I also love the idea of having each of your kids paint their hands a different shade of green so that when you’re done, your tree will be pretty and multi-colored, and each kid can see their imprint (literally) on the tree!  So clever!

There are so many more fun ideas in this collection of 21 Simple Christmas Crafts for Kids, but I don’t have time to tell you about them all because I need to go do some last-minute gift crafting … not to mention wrapping!  So simply click over to the collection page to see all of the fun kid-friendly projects for yourself!  And don’t forget to tell us which ones you decide to make with your family… we’d love to hear about your creations!

Oh, and one last thing!  We’ve also created a handy-dandy free eBook with some easy kids’ Christmas crafts that you can print out and take with you if you’re traveling this holiday season.  The eBook is available for free download here.  You’ll be happy you printed it out when you’re at your relatives’ house and the kids are itching for something fun to do!

Hope you and your little ones have a very merry Christmas full of lots of creativity!
