Known for their crazy, colorful, and magical hair – our favorite mystical creatures are back on the big screen. Celebrate their return and the newest DreamWorks TROLLS movie with Poppy’s Pink Sparkle Trolls Slime Jars!
Nothing compares to the nostalgia induced by one of your favorite films being re-introduced to a new generation, some of which have never even heard of a Treasure Troll with a jeweled belly to compliment its vibrant hair-do. As a child of the 90’s, they were practically the most coveted collection of toys I owned. Until now, these cheerful dolls were just a fond memory for the retro-crazed collectors who found joy in their cute scrunched up smiles. When I found out that W was bringing them to life in an animated movie, I was “high as their hair” excited to see TROLLS in theaters. Their colorful world full of flowers, singing, dancing, and happiness, is one worthy of getting immersed in. DreamWorks TROLLS is a musical extravaganza filled with adventure, comedy, and wonder for the whole family.
To prepare for movie night with our favorite furry headed trolls, we made pink sparkly trolls slime and Poppy themed jars to store it in. If you haven’t seen the movie just yet, Poppy is a responsible and loyal troll who risks her life embarking upon a journey to save her friends. She’s upbeat, peppy, and convinced that all problems can be solved with a song, dance, or BIG hug. It’s tough not to love her flamingo pink skin and spunky personality. This little project is perfect for tiny hands and doesn’t take much work. Plus, I’m going to show you how to make your mason jars look just like Poppy, too!
Let’s start by making the glittery trolls slime. You will need hot pink glitter glue, Borax, warm water, and a bowl.
Pour the entire bottle of glue into a bowl. The one I’m using is 4 oz., but the Elmer’s Glitter Glue is 6 oz. so keep this in mind when measuring your water/Borax ratio in the next step. You may or may not have to adjust the mixture depending on how your slime is forming.
Pour 1/4 cup of warm water into the glue and mix together. Add in 1 teaspoon of Borax and continue to mix until it forms a thicker texture. I’s much easier to do if you just use your hands to squish all the ingredients together so the Borax gets distributed evenly.
This step is a science so don’t get frustrated if it ends up being too watery at first. Just add a little more Borax to it and stir. Don’t over-do it because if you add more than needed, it will become stiff quickly and form more of a putty. It should be gooey, wet, and slide right through your fingers.
Store the slime in a mason jar until it’s ready to be played with.
For the Poppy jars you will need hot pink crafting fur, lime green pipe cleaners, blue scrapbooking flowers, mason jar lids, and a hot glue gun. The amount of fur to use will depend on how large your lids are. For the small ones, I cut out a strip 6 inches long and 5 inches wide.
Carefully hot glue the longer side of the fur strip to the bottom edge of the mason jar lid, all the way around until it’s completely covered. The fur should be laying in a downward motion. Make sure to also glue the overlap so there is not a visible opening.
Gather the top of the hair with your fingers, folding in the sides to form a point. Use scissors to trim the edges into the shape you desire. It should look like a triangle on top, just like the Troll’s signature hair-do. Glue all of the edges together and fan out the hair to hide an seams that may peek through.
For Poppy’s headband, attach three flowers the center of a pipe cleaner, spaced about a half an inch apart.
Wrap the headband around the hair, an inch from the bottom, and twist ends together in the back. Now you can fill the jar with Poppy’s Pink Sparkle Trolls Slime!
Now you can Bring Home Happy with DreamWorks Trolls on Blu – ray™ and DVD. The Blu-ray offers an interactive PARTY MODE that takes movie night to the next level.
