Olaf from Frozen on Halloween! What an awesome way to decorate your porch for Halloween! The trick or treaters will go crazy!

I love it! I’ve been thinking of this idea for a month, but haven’t really had time to completely devote to it. Yesterday…I finally assembled the white painted pumpkins, and made Halloween Olaf! He looks so excited to go Trick or Treating! I took pictures of him like he was a model, then quickly broke him down so the neighbors didn’t think I was crazy! It’s only September, and I have a snowman on the front porch! Come…October first, I am Olafing the front porch for the kids to enjoy! Here’s what I did to make Olaf!

  • Before I begin, you should that when it comes to ideas that I want to accomplish, I am an impatient person. That, and I avoid shopping with my toddler as much as I can. So…I did not go out, and get the good paint.  I tell you this because…should you choose to tackle an Olaf display, I want to spare you the heartache of paint crumbling off of your beautiful project.

  •  In the past, Rust-Oleum has done well for me. The above kitty cat pumpkin was painted with Rust-Oleum spray paint. The paint held really well. This was in Connecticut, and the nights were cold. If you can…get the good stuff!
  • NOW…on to Olaf! 🙂
  • As you can see I used 5 different pumpkins:
  1. 1 large pumpkin for his bum
  2. 1 Cinderella style pumpkin for his middle
  3. 1 oblong pumpkin for his head
  4. 2 small mini pumpkins for feet!
  • It took me a while to play around with what paints I would use for his face. I finally decided on puffy paint
  • At first I did an awful black U for cheeks, and he looked like he had a mustache! I painted over that with white. Now, with a Zoro mask – I think the mustache would have worked! 🙂
  • I did paint eyes on him with light blue puffy paint, and painted black pupils – Then I used a mask – so that really wasn’t necessary!
  • The important part is the blue U, and the tooth! Puffy paint is perfect for that, because it adds dimension.
  • I used a sharp object to make holes in the sides of the Cinderella pumpkin, and stuck branches from a tree – don’t forget the hairs on his head – too!
  • I happened to have a snowman kit in the basement, and used the buttons, and the carrot from those for Snowman details
  • I gave him his little round feet, by just placing them in front of him on their sides
  • I gave Olaf a bag, and some fun Halloween decorations
