How to Make Olaf the Snowman Easter eggs

Popular Easter egg designs will include those characters from Disney’s hit animated movie, Frozen: Princess Anna, her sister Princess Elsa, Kristoff the outdoorsman, Olaf, Sven the reindeer and Hans the handsome royal. Instead of purchasing the typical and costly Disney Easter egg coloring kit, be unique and build your own snowman … Olaf!

To make Olaf the Snowman Easter eggs, supplies needed include:

- Hard boiled 
eggs
- baby carrots
Hot glue sticks and hot glue gun
- Black sharpie markers (
fine and medium point)
- scissors
- pencil
- scotch tape
paring knife
black pipe cleaners
Olaf template

To begin, boil the eggs and let them cool. Gather several baby carrots, clean them and then cut one end off at a slanted angle. If desired, thin the baby carrot into a pointed nose shape using a paring knife so that it fits Olaf’s face.

To make Olaf’s facial features:
1. Download the Olaf face template available here.
2. Print the template (use zoom in feature for a smaller version) to fit the egg.
3. Cut out the pieces of Olaf’s face (eyebrows, eyes, mouth) and tape the pieces onto the egg.
4. Trace each piece using a pencil and then remove the taped pieces.
5. Color in the design using black Sharpie markers.
6. Using hot glue or craft glue, glue the slanted end of the carrot onto egg
7. Erase excess pencil marks using an eraser

Finally, cut a black pipe cleaner into 3 pieces and then glue the pieces to the top of the egg.

If preferred, one can make a 3D stuffed Olaf carrot nose instead of using carrots. Visit Howto Make an Olaf the Snowman Halloween Costume for detailed information.
