These Frozen inspired dancing ribbons are perfect for any little girl who likes Frozen and enjoys movement and dance. The dancing ribbons are also an inexpensive option as a party favor for a Frozen themed birthday party.
I’ve seen rainbow dancing ribbons with wooden rings before and thought it would be fun to make Frozen themed dancing ribbons for our girls to use during the weeks they worked on some Frozen themed learning activities. They love all things Frozen and they love to dance so it was a perfect combination!
Here’s what you’ll need to make Frozen Dancing Ribbons:
- Clear Plastic Shower Curtain Rings
- 90-120″ total length of 3/8″ wide white satin ribbon for each Dancing Ribbon. You can choose whatever width of ribbon you want but I found that 3/8″ worked well. (If you are interested in ordering ribbon online, the Satin White Ribbon should work, although it is different than what I used).
- 90-120″ total length of 3/8″ wide blue satin ribbon for each Dancing Ribbon. Again, you can choose whatever width of ribbon you want but I found that 3/8″ worked well. (If you order online, the Ice Blue Kel-Toy Double Face Satin Ribbon looks really pretty).
Instructions for making Frozen Dancing Ribbons:
- Cut lengths of ribbon between 30″ and 40″ depending on how long you want the ribbon to hang down off the ring. I cut some at 30″ and some at 40″ so there are various lengths of ribbon on the ring. Cut a minimum of 3 blue and 3 white lengths of ribbon. If you have extra ribbon feel free to add additional ribbons to your ring.
- Take out a shower ring and make sure it is snapped together.
- Tie one ribbon onto the ring at a time. Bring one end of the ribbon through the middle of the shower ring, match up the ends of the ribbon so they are even, and then tie the ribbon in a knot the same way that you tie a balloon knot, so the knot is right up against the shower ring.
- Repeat step three until all 6 (or more) ribbons have been tied onto the shower ring. I used seven total for each.
- You can seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn’t fray by quickly moving a lighter along the edge of the ribbon, one at a time. (I didn’t do this right away and the ribbons started to unravel at the bottoms. Although this part was a little scary for me, because I could just imagine the whole bunch of ribbons going up in flames, I had no problems at all. Just put the flame to the edge of the ribbon for a second and it will quickly sear it.)
- And that’s it! Hand the Dancing Ribbon off to your sweet girl and watch her dance her little heart out!
If you are interested in either the Anna or the Elsa dress in the photos, I highly recommend both of them. They are made by Little Adventures and although they are a little bit more expensive than some of the other options, they are worth it.
Not only are these dresses nice and soft, but they are also washable! That is so important when you have little girls who like to do everything in their princess dresses because those dresses are sure to need a good washing at some point!
