There was only one possible choice for our Halloween pumpkin this year. The girls’ favourite character from any film was the loveable Olaf from Disney’s Frozen and he lends himself perfectly to a pumpkin creation. I’m pretty sure there are other Olaf pumpkins around, but I haven’t seen any yet and I haven’t wanted to look to see what other ideas are out there.
What you will need to make your No Carve Olaf Pumpkin
- a carrot
- 3 black bottle caps
- large googly eyes
- black and white craft foam
How to make your Olaf pumpkin
- The first step was to paint our pumpkins. I used a fast drying enamel spray. I painted two coats with different sprays, white and then glitter. Leave to dry overnight.
- Make a hole for the nose and the twigs using a small knife. Other than this there was no carving.
- Use the stalk of the bottom pumpkin to hold the two pumpkins together. You might need a skewer.
- Glue the bottle caps and the mouth.
He would look more realistic if you could find a less round pumpkin for his head, or place the pumpkin on its side. The girls were very pleased and want to cuddle him.
I actually liked the white enamel spray on its own. It looked really shiny.
The glitter layer gives it a really snowy feel.
We left the pumpkins overnight to dry.
I was going to make googly eyes using bottle caps and plastic pots but they were a bit large. I wanted this to be a really easy project so I used the biggest googly eyes I could find.
