A DIY Princess Anna Costume for Mommy

Frozen DIY Anna Costume for Mommy

I thought my daughter’s Frozen obsession would have subsided by now, but she will be joining the hoards of other little Elsa’s this Halloween.  Also joining in will be our large hound dog, thanks to this Elsa dog dress we came across at Petsmart.

Treats for the Frozen Lover

If you have kids, it would be a pretty safe assumption that you have seen the Disney movie Frozen.  Several times.  Maybe several dozen times.

I took my son to see it in theater back in December, and while he and I both enjoyed it, I didn’t think it would be the massive hit it has turned out to be.  When the movie came out on DVD and my Facebook feed exploded with mentions of everyone’s children singing adorable renditions of “Let It Go”,  I admit I got kind of annoyed and refused to buy the DVD.  It took a couple months, but I did finally give in and both kids and I have enjoyed sitting down to watch Frozen half a dozen times or so now.

The craze hasn’t seemed to really die down on social media and my Facebook and Pinterest feeds are still full of Frozen mentions.  If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em so I decided to fully embrace the madness and came up with this adorable Olaf inspired treat jar to share as my first contributor post on Moms & Munchkins.

This craft is a fairly simple DIY and was easy to pull together with easy-to-find materials including terra cotta pots and saucers, acrylic paints, felt, google eyes, a fake carrot nose, pipe cleaners and a hot glue gun.  The most expensive item for the project actually ended up being the chocolates to fill it!

To complete my finished snowman, I filled it with Hershey’s Hugs.  If you have seen the movie, you’ll understand why this seemed fitting!

Right now our Olaf is just sitting out on our kitchen counter, but I can’t wait to incorporate him into our decorating come Christmas time.  If you have a Frozen lover in your life, this would make a wonderful Christmas gift or look great as part of a Frozen party table or display.
