DIY Frozen Favors

Sara is turning 4 in just a few short weeks, and with her recent obsession of singing "Do you want to build a snowman", it was no surprise she requested a "Frozen" themed party.

The stage is set for a sing along, ice cream bar, pin the carrot on Olaf birthday bash. Now, for party favors.

I didn't want to buy junk favors, so this year, I am keeping it simple with Arondale favor bags (that took me 3 weeks to find) and some fun goodies for the girls.

One favor I was really excited to do was an easy DIY Hair bow from my left over Frozen fabric I purchased to make Sara's party skirt.

These adorable bows are simple to whip up and are great stash busters!

To make your own you will need:
Sewing machine
Hair clips
Hot glue gun

1. Cut your fabric into one 5x7 inch rectangle, and a 2x3 inch rectangle. These two pieces will make your bow.

2. Fold the 5x7" piece right sides facing and sew a 1/4" seam. Turn right side out and press, so that seam is centered in the back. Fold in sides and pin as shown.
3. Sew as close as you can to the edge to close sides, and accordion fold as shown here. Using your sewing machine, stitch a short zigzag in the center to secure shape.

4. Now fold your 2x3" pieces right side facing and stitch a seam.

5. Turn right side out and use a dab of hot glue to make rings. Once dry, slide ring over one end of the bow.
6. Use a little hot glue to attach your hair clip and allow to dry completely. Done!
