Little girls enjoy dressing up as the beautiful princess Cinderella and sharing the fun with the friends at parties. Make homemade Cinderella crafts as theme-party favours and decorations. Use them to decorate a room for a little princess or to bring childhood fairy tales into your everyday life.
Cookie Cutter Ornaments
Find Cinderella cookie cutters in a variety of shapes and characters. Cinderella, a crown, fairy godmother's magic wand, glass slipper, castle and Prince Charming cutters are available on the Internet and at confectionery and craft stores. Make air-dry clay ornaments and paint them with acrylic paint. Alternatively, cut out card stock ornaments, paint with markers and embellish with jewels, sequins and small, glittery beads. Attach the cards to a ribbon or yarn and hang the banner over a mirror or notice board for a princess themed room.
Pumpkin Coach Cards
Use the template for Cinderella's pumpkin coach and make greeting cards or invitations from scrapbooking papers, decorate with gold and silver markers and add bottle cap or button wheels. The template includes a door that opens, where you can write your message. Use the cards as invitations, party place cards or holiday greeting cards. As an alternative, make several cards, add simple stand-up backings or hanging hooks and use the pumpkin coaches as frames for party favour pictures of your own little princess and her princess friends.
Cinderella's Tiara and Choker
Instead of a fancy crown, create Cinderella's jewelled blue headband tiara and choker necklace to make your little princess feel special every day. Use a plain, thin, plastic headband as the base for the trim. Glue a length of blue sequin trim along the headband, leaving the ends untrimmed. Then add flat-backed acrylic gems to the two ends. For a wider headband, use two rows of sequin trim. Make a ribbon choker to match, gluing sequins around a narrow band and a gem on the front centre. Add a jewellery clasp or tie the ends to close.
Fairy Godmother's Wand
Cinderella's fairy godmother used her magic wand to make Cinderella's dreams come true. Make a magical wand with a 1/4-inch dowel cut to 12-inches long. Paint the dowel white and add glitter. Cut two large and several pairs of small and medium-sized stars from self-sticking blue and white glittery foam craft sheets. Attach the two large stars to each other over the top of the dowel. Attach the small and medium stars to various lengths of blue and white embroidery floss to hang loose from the wand. Make several as favours for a princess-themed party.
