Sick of Frozen yet? I'm not, especially when we're hit with a huge winter storm in the north east... Such a good time to watch the movie. Our first major snow storm came down so fast and hard it turned into a good time to craft. This little Elsa tube craft would be a fun snowy day activity.




Materials:

⁃ Toilet tube
⁃ Colored cardstock
⁃ Piece of blue fabric
⁃ Tacky glue
⁃ Acrylic paint
⁃ Hot glue
⁃ Iridescent glitter
⁃ Stapler
⁃ Piece of fabric
⁃ Spray glue




Step 1. Cut a piece of 4.25"x6" skin tone cardstock and wrap it around the tube, staple it on. Next cut a 2"x6" piece of light blue cardstock and staple that to the tube as well. 

Step 2. I used my Cricut to cut out a little face template to paint on the tube. But you can just freehand or print out a picture from the Internet to help.




Step 3. The hair was a circular shape that I cut up into strips and curled around a white lollipop stick. As added coverage I cut a strip of yellow paper to place inside the tube. Once all of my pieces were cut I glued them on with hot glue.

Step 4. For her dress I cut open a paper cup to trace, this gives the appearance of a cone shape rather than flat against the tube. I cut the chest piece and added glitter by first spraying on glue.

Step 5. I cut a 7"x5" piece of sheer blue fabric for the cape, wrapped it around the tube and used hot glue to secure it.




Step 6. As added detail I cut out small snowflakes to add to her hair and the clasp of the cape.




Isn't she cute? You can see how we created a fun winter play scene to go along with Elsa and her friend Olaf here.
