Easy to Make Frozen Party Centerpieces (Works for Winter or Snowflake Themes, Too!)

easy to make frozen centerpieces for a Disney Frozen party


When my best friend's daughter turned five, she decided to have a Disney Frozen themed party. I made these easy DIY centerpieces featuring snowflakes and sparkles - everything Elsa loves! This pretty Frozen center piece idea also doubles as a party favor since guests can take them home to use as magic wands! Just let each guest choose a snowflake wand to bring home and practice their freezing powers.

If the birthday kid has a Frozen inspired bedroom, use hot glue instead of wood glue to attach the snowflakes to the wands so you can pop them off after the party and turn them into Disney Frozen bedroom decor! Attach them to the wall or hang them with clear fishing line (high enough not to be a hazard, of course!).

While I made these for a Disney Frozen birthday party, if you need decorations for a winter themed banquet or a snowflake party, these would make great decorations for that as well!

Directions

Step 1: Make wands
Make wands by gluing the dowels to the base of the snowflakes and number using the wood glue. 

Step 2: Paint
Paint the wands as desired. I painted the number 5 with light blue paint (pond+wedding cake) and then topped it with teal glitter paint (feldspar). I used three different snowflake shapes and painted one white (wedding cake), one blue (pond) and one silver (pure platinum). The handles were all painted white (wedding cake).

Step 3: Decorate
To fancy them up, I added adhesive gems and snowflake stickers to both the snowflakes as well as the five.

Step 4: Bases
To make the bases, fill a glass vase a little less than halfway full of marbles. I used a mix of clear and blue marbles from Dollar Tree in my bases.

Step 5: Assemble
To assemble centerpieces, plunge wands into marbles to hold them standing upright. Use snips to adjust length of wands as needed to stagger them to make them stand at different heights for added interest.

Place one centerpiece in the center of each round table or make a line of them to go down the center of a rectangular table.

As an extra bonus, you can send the snowflake wands home with party guests as a favor!
