How to Make This Merida Craft
Begin by downloading your free Merida template. Be sure to follow the instructions and print out the template on the different colored card stock.
Once the Merida pieces are cut out they are ready to be glued together. Cutting and gluing is a fantastic activity for kids.
Add glue to the Mickey ears and the trim of Merida’s dress. Next sprinkle red and gold glitter onto the paper craft to create Merida’s red hair and gold trim coat.
You can add string to the back of your Merida paper craft to make it into an ornament. Add to your tree or decorate in the home.
This is a great Disney themed craft and you could even make a whole lot of these to create a garland for a party!

- Be sure to start the speed on low and increase to high.
- Once the ingredients are well-combined and form semi-stiff peaks, the buttercream is complete.
- Using an offset spatula, frost each cupcake with a thin layer of buttercream.
- Roll out the green fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
