I’m back with three more DIY ornaments inspired by some of my favorite Disney Princesses! They all start with glitter ornaments, so hop over to my post with the full instructions on the best way to make those once you’re ready to get started.
Creating a DIY Moana Christmas ornament stumped me for a bit, but I had inspiration strike on one of my near daily visits to the craft store. I created her skirt using four different trims I picked up at Michaels and adding them to the ornament with hot glue.
As an optional embellishment, you can create her necklace out of polymer clay. I promise it’s easier than it looks. A little blue clay, a little white clay… Just bake and paint on some pearl glaze. (Or in the the case of the white part, a little pearl glaze mixed with gray paint.) And yes, I know Moana isn’t technically a princess. But she is wearing a dress and she has an animal sidekick, so…
Aurora from Sleeping Beauty is an ornament that you can knock out in just a few minutes!
Layer a piece of white glitter tape back to back and then cut out the half oval shape two times.
Use hot glue to attach your glitter tape to the ornament to create Aurora’s collar. I should mention one really helpful hint here: whenever you’re adding anything onto an ornament and you want to achieve a straight line, place a thick rubber band around the center of the ornament. It’s very helpful when you’re lining things up!
Remember how I said it was really quick to make your own Sleeping Beauty ornament? Making Ariel from The Little Mermaid is not a quick process.
That’s not to say that it’s difficult. It’s just a bit time consuming. To create the scales, use a simple hole punch and green foil tape. The rubber band trick works well here, too, when it comes to creating the edge of Ariel’s tail.
This is a good “sitting in front of the TV” project since it takes some time, but it’s not challenging. Ready for more Disney-ornament fun?
