Raise your hand if you have a child in your home that is going to be a character from Frozen for Halloween. I suspect that 95% of those of you who have kids are nodding yes right now. Ana and Elsa costumes are selling out as every preschool little girl gears up to be a snow princess this Halloween. I was lucky enough to snag the last Ana and Elsa dresses at my Target a few weeks ago when they were on sale. But, that left poor little Pearl. There are no Olaf costumes in sight! So, I whipped up a super easy one. It’s not the most amazing thing in the world, but it gets the job done and barely requires any crafting skills.
Our Halloween can now be complete with Ana, Elsa and Olaf (yay!). The girls requested that I be a horse (not sure how that fits in with Frozen). I think I will kindly decline, wear a pair of fairy wings and call it good.
I bought a white stocking cap for less than $1 at Walmart and glued on some felt eyes and eyebrows with hot glue.
I cut out an orange triangle and sewed it for the carrot nose. You could probably hot glue this part as well. After stuffing it with some batting, it became a cute carrot nose.
For the buttons on the shirt, I made some DIY poms using black yarn and safety pinned them on so that we can use the shirt later.
Now the real challenge will be convincing Pearl to keep the hat on.
If you are needing another DIY costume idea, check out how I made a sock monkey from a thrift store sweater. It’s a bit more involved, but is the cutest thing ever!
Are you making any costumes this year?
