Our Girl Scout Troop decided to throw a Frozen themed party for the younger Girl Scout troops in our area here in the High Desert. After the success of my Elsa Crown Tutorial earlier this year, Katie decided to make crowns with Rowlux for this event. These DIY Party Crowns are super easy to make – the secret is to use Rowlux as the base. The Rowlux is not only beautiful, giving the crowns the look of metal and ice, but it also stands up like a crown – lighter than metal but stronger than paper!
The girls who attended our troop's “Frozen In July” Party were split into groups and rotated around the room to stations – each station had a different craft or activity for the girls to create or do. Katie led the Frozen crown making station!! The other stations included a Troll Pet Rock Station, Reindeer vs. Snowman Relay Races, Icy Pool Scavenger Hunt, and Olaf Cup Decorating (for Root Beer Floats).
For the DIY Crown Station, Katie set up an “embellie bar” where the girls could select rhinestones, ribbons, flowers, beaded sprays, cabochons, felt flowers, sequins, and more to adorn their crowns. We pre-cut the crowns from Rowlux using a crown die from Brenda Walton for Sizzix. It's such a gorgeous and ornate crown design — so much easier than cutting out the crowns by hand like I did in my tutorial!! Then the girls selected embellishments for the crowns and attached them with glue guns and the help of an adult. The crowns were tied in the back with ribbons, which the girls also selected from the embellie bar.
Here's how to make the crowns:
We want to give a HUGE thank you to our sponsors for supporting the event and making it super special for all of the young girls who attended:
Please visit the companies' social media and tell them we sent you :) It is so wonderful to see companies like these supporting the efforts and creativity of young girls at events like this one!!!
We'll be posting another blog post soon, showing how we made pet rocks, a.k.a “Pet Trolls”, during our Frozen Party!!! You can use either of these ideas or both to create activities during a Frozen themed birthday party or at your next Girl Scout meeting.
