Treats for the Frozen Lover

SONY DSC

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.

Tabletop Decorations: Merry Mickey Snowman and Tabletop Trees

Today I am sharing a couple quick projects I did to spruce up our kitchen table and add some decoration to the side buffet in our dining nook.

The inspiration for this Mickey project came largely from the Mickey Tree Topper I shared yesterday and the images of Mickey snowmen I kept coming across on the internet.  I was downstairs searching through my Christmas stuff and there he was just staring at me from the shelf begging for a set of mouse ears!  I bought him several years ago, and I still really like him so I was happy to find a way to fit him into my holiday décor and theme.
