Do you have a kid who loves the movie Frozen? Or if you are like me, then you are the Frozen fanatic in your household! I love this movie and my family is kind enough to indulge my obsession. Fortunately, my son thinks Olaf is hilarious, so my kiddo was happy to make this Frozen-inspired windsock craft with me!
- white cardstock (preferably), but regular printer paper will do
- glitter/glitter glue
- glue stick
- white glue (for adding glitter and sequins)
- crepe paper in blues and/or violet — Amazon has a pastels multi-pack and a “mermaid” colored pack of crepe paper
- stapler (optional)
- hole punch
Print the free snowflake template onto white cardstock. I have a laser printer and it didn’t want to print on cardstock so I had to print on regular printer paper.
Decorating time!!! Color the snowflakes with markers. We outlined some of our snowflakes and completely colored-in others, using skinny markers. Use your creativity to make your snowflakes Elsa worthy. Add glitter/glitter glue and sequins onto the snowflakes and around the background. Make your windsock super sparkly! My son and I love using glitter glue. Crayola Washable Glitter Glue Pens are my favorite because they are so easy to wipe up. Let your project dry after you’ve added all of your glitter and sequins.
Cut your crepe paper into 12-inch long strips. Make a total of 6 strips. Once your project is dry, turn it over and glue the crepe paper along the bottom of the windsock. We used a glue stick to attach the crepe paper.
Turn the windsock front-facing so that you are looking at the snowflakes. Gently fold the windsock so that the 2 vertical edges touch each. Glue the 2 sides together so that it forms a tube. You can also stapled them together to add more support if you are using cardstock . Now your project should look like a windsock!
Cut your ribbon; ours is about 2 feet long. Punch a hole on both sides of the windsock — make the holes towards the top of the windsock. Tie your ribbon to both holes so that you can hang your windsock. We hung ours by a window so that it can blow when we get a breeze. We think Elsa would be proud of our Frozen-inspired windsock 🙂
