How To Make Olaf Ornaments

I’ve got several step-by-step photos to guide you through making Frozen Olaf ornaments, and there is also a slideshow video over on my YouTube channel that you can watch and save to your Playlists for future reference. (Don’t forget to subscribe while you are there!)

Assembling your Olaf snowman ornament is really easy – here is how you do it!

Simply print the template onto the corresponding colored paper or card and cut the pieces out.

Alternatively, you could print onto regular paper and trace around the pieces onto the colored card, especially if you are worried that it won’t go through your printer. You will have to draw Olaf’s face on if you go this route.

Cut Olaf Template Pieces

Space out the ears pieces evenly and use a glue stick to attach behind the top of Olaf’s head.

Then color Olaf’s carrot nose in orange using a crayon, pencil, or marker pen.

Glue on Olaf Mickey Ears
Color Olaf’s Nose

Adding glitter to the Christmas ornament is optional. I think all Christmas decorations look better with glitter… but it’s your choice!

Add white school glue to Olaf’s Mickey ears and sprinkle over white fine glitter. Shake off the excess and leave to dry.

You can also add orange glitter in the same way to Olaf’s nose.

Add Glitter & Hanging Loop to Olaf Ornament

Just one more step which is sticking a loop of black string or ribbon to the back of the ornament. You can glue another head piece to the back to cover the workings.

Leave everything to dry completely before hanging on your tree!

If you want the decorations to last longer, you could run them through a laminator before attaching the hanging loop. When cutting out after laminating the ornaments, make sure you leave a slight edge so that the laminating sheets do not come apart!
