A Little Frozen Fix

My daughter ran into the room with a stream of tears running down her face. In her hands she had her Elsa crown. The small jewel emblem that shows that this is an Elsa crown fell off. Since¬†the crown wasn’t broken and just the jewel fell off, I knew I could fix this in no time. Have no fear, dad to the rescue!

First things first, let’s see what we are working with. A plastic crown and a plastic jewel. Check.

The materials for the job. Scrap paper courtesy of Abby. A glue gun, a glue stick, and the broken crown.

Plug in the glue gun, insert the glue stick and let it heat up. I like to set the glue gun on the scrap paper so I don’t get glue on anything.

Once heated put some glue on the back of the jewel. In the pictures you can see where the original glue was. I probably should have removed the old glue, but for this fix, I didn’t find it necessary.

Place the jewel back on the crown. Press firmly and set aside to dry.

There you have it. Nothing spectacular or fancy, but Abby was absolutely delighted to have Anna and Elsa back on her little curly head.
