Okay, we love Disney around here. And after 4 straight years of going to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, we are heading to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party next week! I’m so excited! In honor of our trip down to DisneyWorld, and thanks to some Black Friday shopping, I created 3 easy DIY Frozen Ornaments. I started with one variation after going to Michael’s, and then as I was browsing, I ended up gathering enough supplies to make three variations along with a few extras for my sweet Mother-in-Law’s little grandnieces who are also Frozen obsessed. The Monkey, even though it is a “Princess Movie,” loves to sing Let it Go, and is quite fond of Olaf. If you have a Frozen or Disney lover like my little Monkey, you might like to make any one of these three very easy DIY Frozen ornaments!
The three ornaments include, one with bells and snowflakes, one with glittery pom-poms, and finally, a snowflake sequined ball. The first two included a vinyl design cut with my Cricut. Now, if you didn’t know it, Cricut has a great collection of Frozen designs that you can use with your Cricut machine. However, you could also make these with stickers.

Bells and Snowflakes “Let It Go” Frozen Ornament
Michael’s near me is carrying these “Handmade Holidays” 20 piece bells collection by Celebrate It that come in a couple of colors, and the blue, white and silver glitter collection is perfect for a Frozen theme. I used one entire bag in the Flat Disc Ornament, and added about 5 of each of the different colored snowflakes sequins into the ornament after removing the silver top and hanger. I had to fold the snowflakes a bit to get them to slide into the ornament.
Then I used the “Let It Go” design that is available in the Frozen Cartridge by Cricut, and cut it out in silver vinyl. I sized it to be about 2.5 inches tall to get it to fit on the ornament. This is the reason that I selected a flat disc ornament rather than a sphere– I had more surface area for the words. I also put the date on the back of the ornament in vinyl. Once the ornament was complete, I sealed the top on the ornament with glue.
Pom-Poms and Snowflakes Frozen Ornament
In the children’s craft section of my Michael’s, I found a blue, white and silver pom-pom collection. (It was also a special collection for the holidays, but they have a similar set that is available in the Pom-Pom section.) I filled the pom-poms to the top of the unbreakable clear round ornament. Then I used my Cricut Explore Air™ machine to cut out one of the snowflake designs from the Disney Frozen™ Cartridge with the layers in silver and silver glitter vinyl. (If you’d like to learn about layering vinyl, you can check out my Beware of Animals post.)
I put the transfer tape carefully on top of the silver glitter vinyl first, and then I positioned the silver glitter vinyl snowflake on top of the silver vinyl snowflake. When it was lined up properly, I pressed it down to adhere together, and then I used the same transfer tape to put the layered snowflake on the ornament.
Snowflake Sequined Frozen Ornament
The package of snowflake sequins had so many that there were enough left over for another craft. I used a medium-sized styrofoam sphere to create a frozen ornament that was covered in snowflake sequins. This is very similar to my Sequined Christmas Trees that I made a few years ago.
I started by cutting a length of ribbon to act as the hanger, and I placed some glue on the styrofoam ball, and stuck a pin through the ribbon and into the glue. I thought the glue plus the pin would make the ribbon more secure. Then I used straight pins to randomly place the sequins all over the styrofoam. I ended up using regular straight pins, and then on the white snowflake sequins I placed light blue rhinestones on the pin heads. On the blue and silver sequins, I placed the pearl stickers. I would suggest that you consider using sequin straight pins rather than dressmaker’s pins if they are available, as the sequin pins are a bit shorter. This ornament is really easy to make, but will take more than 15 minutes to make, unlike the other two. However, given the size of the ball, it shouldn’t take more than an hour to make.
Which of the 3 ornaments is the most Frozen like? I started thinking about repeating this in Mickey Mouse colors because right now the Peanut is loving Mickey Mouse.
