While I love a traditional green wreath, we wanted to put together something a little more fun for my Frozen-obsessed child to bring to the local children’s hospital. Olaf fit the bill!
If there’s anyone who can bring a smile to a kiddo’s face, it’s definitely Olaf. And even though he won’t be getting gorgeously tanned in summer, he’ll look pretty darn adorable on your front door this holiday season.
I love crafts like this one, because we pulled it together in under a half an hour, and just about all of the supplies can be sourced at the dollar store. My kind of DIY!
- Wreath form (like this one from Amazon)
- Cotton balls (we used about 100)
- Hot glue gun and glue
- 2 styrofoam balls (like these from Amazon)
- Black acrylic paint (like this from Amazon)
- Paint brush
- Felt or card stock in orange, white, and black (like these from Amazon)
- 4 toothpicks
- Hot glue cotton balls around wreath form.
- Paint two black circles onto the styrofoam balls to create Olaf’s eyes.
- Cut two eyebrows out of the black felt or card stock. Glue to toothpicks.
- Pin eyes into the wreath using toothpicks.
- Pin eyebrows to the tops of his eyes.
- Cut out the teeth and nose using the white and orange felt or card stock. Hot glue in place.
- Lastly, give the top of his head his signature twiggy hair! The branches should stick right in, but feel free to dab a little hot glue to the ends to secure in place. Hang on door or wall as desired.
