Are you looking forward to the release of Frozen 2 in theaters? We’re just days away from being able to enjoy the continuing story from two of our favorite heroes! To honor these Arendelle ladies coming back to the big screen, I’m sharing an easy DIY Frozen Elsa Snowflake Wand tutorial from Get Away Today.
Easy DIY Frozen Elsa Snowflake Wand
Frozen 2 has inspired a whole new line of Frozen merchandise. The store shelves are stocked with stuffed Olaf dolls, Elsa and Anna costumes, plastic Sven reindeer, Frozen board games, Arendelle snow globes, and more! I even saw a light up snowflake Elsa wand. The wand got me thinking about creating a DIY Elsa wand tutorial. Some things are just better when you get to make it yourself. This craft is perfect for a Frozen 2 movie bash, a birthday party, or even just to create some Disney magic at home.
So, I’ll ask the question, “Do you want to build an Elsa Wand?”
Frozen Elsa Wand DIY Supplies:
- Glitter Styrofoam Snowflake Christmas Ornament
- Glitter Wire Fringe
- Bamboo Sticks
- 1 Inch Wide Glitter Ribbon (14 inches long)
- White Ribbon (28 inches long)
- Turquoise Ribbon (28 inches long)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Wire Cutters
We all know Elsa doesn’t need a wand to work her icy magic, but you and I do! We weren’t born with frozen powers, so we need a little help from this Elsa-inspired wand.
Frozen Elsa Wand Craft
Gather up your supplies from a craft store, Walmart or the Amazon links above. Start by cutting the glitter wire fringe so that you have lots of little pieces. The fringe makes the snowflake at the top of the Elsa wand look like it is shooting out magic!
Frozen Elsa Wand DIY – Assembly
I picked up some long bamboo skewer sticks from the craft section. At 32 inches, they were pretty long. Using the wire cutters I trimmed them each to about 12 inches in length. The Amazon bamboo skewers linked above are seven inches long so you shouldn’t have to do any cutting.
Use a hot glue gun to attach the fringe pieces to the top of the bamboo wand.
Roll out the 1 inch ribbon and cut a section of it to match the length of your stick. Remember, my skewers measured 12 inches, so that’s the length I needed. After you cut your ribbon to length, fold the cut edges under so that they are tucked inside at the ends.
Squeeze a row of hot glue along one long side of the ribbon. Place the wooden skewer on the glue and then roll it tight so the ribbon wraps around the stick. When you get to the end, add another row of hot glue to finish it off and hold the ribbon in place. You want the whole bamboo skewer covered.
Then, snip the snowflakes off of the ornament so that they are all individual pieces.
The snowflakes I found were super easy to work with because they already had wire attached to them. I just ran the wire in a loop around the top of the wand. Then I squeezed the wire so it was wound nice and tight. The snowflake stayed in place perfectly without having to add any glue. Your wand should be starting to look fancy!

The final step is to add the ribbon that hangs from the wand. I used a 1/4 inch white ribbon and then a super thin 1/8 inch glitter turquoise ribbon. Cut them to be about 24 inches long. Since the turquoise ribbon was small, I decided to include two pieces of it and just one of the white.
Tie the ribbon around the top part of the wand. Just do a nice little knot. It makes the wand fun to use because the ribbon flows like a nice snow flurry!
This Frozen Elsa wand is super lightweight and extra sparkly! I swished it around the house for a minute and it handled quite nicely. I am sure your little princess if going to love making her own. Maybe you can even take it to the theaters to see Frozen 2!
