This year with the Frozen craze, I knew I wanted to add Olaf to the pumpkin gang. At first I was just going to make his head, but he just did not look finished that way. I added a couple more pumpkins and he looked like a snowman.
I painted three dollar store pumpkins white. Olaf does have a head and might look good with a taller pumpkin on top, but I did not find one that looked right at the craft store. I left the stem on one pumpkin, and removed it from the other two pumpkins. The stem is removed so that the pumpkins stack properly.
I stacked the pumpkins, and hot glued them together. You will need to use a generous amount of glue or they may come apart. (I found out the hard way)
I used Model Magic to make the nose. It like that is is easy to sculpt and is still very light when it dries. You can use either orange Model Magic if you can find it. If you can't, you can do what I did. I just made the nose in white and then painted it orange.
I used hot glue to add his nose, and his eyes. I added a circle of blue cardstock behind his eyes, because in all of his pictures there is some blue.
I was not sure what to use for his mouth. I ended up using black cardstock because it was easy to change. You could also use black craft foam or paint if you prefer. I used brown pipe cleaners for his twig hair and eyebrows. I thought I had dark brown in my stash. I could not find it though so I used regular brown. I might pick up some up the next time I go to the craft store, and make them a bit darker.
I also added a his twig arms. They were very easy to attach with no glue needed. Just make a toothpick size hole where you want to add the pipe cleaner, and it will go right in.
Olaf loved his photo shoot with the pumpkins on our porch, he could not stop smiling.
