Sleeping Beauty Christmas Ornament Craft
Sleeping Beauty, also known as Princess Aurora has always been my favorite Disney Princess and so I simply had to share this gorgeous Sleeping Beauty Christmas ornament craft with you.

I highly recommend always reading everything all the way through before starting any project so you understand all the steps required.
A few simple craft supplies are needed for this paper ornament:
- Construction Paper or Cardstock in the following colors:
- Gold (Fine) Glitter (optional)
- Pink (Fine) Glitter (optional)
- School Glue/White PVA Glue
- Glue Stick
- Black String or Ribbon – for hanging your completed ornament
- Laminator – optional, but you can laminate your ornaments if you wish
- Sleeping Beauty Ornament Template – as with [most of] my free printables, this is available in two different sizes – A4 and US Letter (8.5″ x 11″). You’ll find the downloads below, surrounded by a purple box.
How To Make Sleeping Beauty Ornaments
I’ve got several photos to guide you through making these Disney ornaments, and there is also a slideshow video over on my YouTube channel that you can watch and save to your Playlists for future reference. (Don’t forget to subscribe while you are there!)
Assembling your Disney ornament is really easy – here is how you do it!
Simply print the template onto the corresponding colored paper or card and cut the pieces out.
Alternatively, you could print onto regular paper and trace around the pieces onto the colored card, especially if you are worried that it won’t go through your printer.
Using a glue stick, attach the dress and collar pieces, followed by the dress trim and part of the crown.
Then attach the ears at the back, evenly spaced apart, and then the final piece of the crown in between.
Adding glitter is optional, but Christmas ornaments need to be sparkly, so I think you should!
Add white glue to the crown and sprinkle gold glitter over it. Shake off excess and leave to dry. You can add glitter to other areas if you like.
Just one more step which is sticking a loop of black string or ribbon to the back of the ornaments. Leave everything to dry completely before hanging on your tree!
If you want the decorations to last longer, you could run them through a laminator before attaching the hanging loop. When cutting out after laminating the ornaments, make sure you leave a slight edge so that the laminating sheets do not come apart!
