Ice Princess Crafts
Grown-ups might be sick of winter, but thanks to a recent movie about an ice queen, kids can't get enough of the cold and snow. Treat your little princess to her own royal wardrobe with the ideas in Ice Princess Crafts by Colleen Dorsey. This book is packed with fun and whimsy, boasting 35 projects for crowns, pendants, gloves, and more.
Author Colleen Dorsey has had a hand in producing books of foam projects, paper crafts, jewelry patterns, and kids' crafts. When she isn't working, Colleen creates her own accessories and upcycles items into exciting new uses. In Ice Princess Crafts, Colleen has channeled her love for handmade jewelry into easy, elegant designs for tiaras, rings, and bracelets, to name a few.
No matter what your skill set, there is a project in this collection for you. Choose from tutorials on sewing, braiding, painting, gluing, and (of course) glittering. Find inspiration on every beautifully-photographed page, and learn how to beat the rush for brand name goodies at Halloween and Christmas by making your own alternatives inspired by the popular film.
The activities in Ice Princess Crafts call for supplies that are both inexpensive and easy to find, which makes these projects perfect for parties. Throw a snow-inspired bash that invites children to use their imagination. Some crafts that are sure to be popular are the Snowspray Tulle Tutu and the Winter Wonder Cape. Give each girl her own princess-approved hairdo (Braided Headband Crown) and manicure (Frosted Nail Art), and her royal highness and her friends will have a blast playing dress up. Keep your camera on hand to capture those magical moments!
