My daughter is crazy about Frozen, so she was looking forward to the second part of the movie. Frozen II entered the cinemas just before Christmas, so when making Christmas decorations of clay, together with the girls I decided to create symbols of spirits from the latest Disney fairy tale. I used the description found here. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until the second visit to the cinema (yes, we were twice) that I realized that some symbols are upside down. May the spirits forgive us 🙂
I invite you to make symbols of spirits of water, wind, fire and earth, which are inspired by the Frozen II movie.

Making of clay symbols
Making clay ornaments is very similar to making cookies. Roll out the clay into a half-centimeter thick plate. Better a little less than more. However, less than 3mm is not enough and ornaments break easily.
Cut out the shape with a knife, it should be a diamond pattern. To make all 4 look the same, I used the first one as a template.
With a skewer stick, make even grooves along the edges. Then model the pattern corresponding to the carvings in the symbols of spirits. Fire spirit symbol has an additional diamond inside the frame. While water spirit symbol has a drop and circle shape (mine is upside down). I’m not sure the remaining. However, I suppose that the symbol of the rising sun is probably the spirit of the earth. The last one with the trident and two circles is probably the spirit of the earth.
In each ornament make a hole with a straw. Dried clay is breaking easily, so do not make the hole to close to the edge.
Put all decorations in a safe place for about 24 hours, allowing them to dry completely.
Painting and decorating
The next day you can start painting. I used poster paints and glitter glue.
The symbols of spirits are ready. You can attach a string and hang them on the Christmas tree or give them to kids to play. They definitely got Elsa doll for Christmas.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
