When making clay Christmas ornaments, B came up with the idea of making Frozen Inspired Christmas Ornaments as he loves watching the movie.
To make these ornaments, you need white clay. You can either purchase white air drying clay or make your own. To make it yourself, mix 1 part Elmer’s glue and 1 part cornflour e.g. 1 cup Elmer’s glue and 1 cup cornflour. I live in Australia and have found that you can purchase Elmer’s glue from Woolworths. Cornflour can also be known as corn starch in countries such as the US.
To make Elsa and Anna, we used an angel cookie cutter as B thought it looked more like the girls than the girl cookie cutter we had. While the clay was still wet, we used a toothpick to add a hole in the top of the ornaments for hanging.
After the clay had dried, we glued on some thread for hair and painted the clay with acrylic paints. When the glue was dried, I tried to plait the girls hair. The thread we used made it difficult to plait, so maybe wool might be easier. We then drew on their faces with permanent markers.
For Christoff, we used the boys cookie cutter and made a hat for him by hand. We pressed the hat onto his head while he was still wet. We did the same sort of thing with Prince Hans’ crown.
For Sven we used a horse cookie cutter and added the horns by hand. Olaf was made by using a snowman cookie cutter and then we added feet, arms and a hat to his head.
Again, we added the holes for the string with a toothpick while still wet. When dry, we painted them we acrylic paints. For the boys, we glue on short pieces of string for hair.
While we were making these Frozen Inspired Clay Christmas Ornaments, we also made some Christmas ornaments, like trees, snowflakes, stars and hearts.
Only wish we could have a ‘Frozen’ Christmas in Australia!
