Hello. Its Alli here from Made with HAPPY. Today we’re sharing a fun and simple ornament craft you can do with your little ones that will have them belting out Frozen even more then they already have.
Here is how we made them.
- One plastic ball ornament – plastic always better for the kids
- 1/4 Cup Epsom Salt
- Two Small Branches
- 3 Black Pony Beads
- A Toothpick – If you have an orange toothpick, awesome, if not, easily use an orange marker to color the tip.
Using a piece of paper, pour the salt onto the paper and funnel it into the top of the ornament. Fill approximately half up.Cut your branches (olaf arms) down to size. Note, you want the length to be short enough to fit inside the ornament, but long enough to resemble arms.Then simply add Olaf’s buttons, arms and nose to the top of the salt. Viola, Melted Olaf.
I also made a cute printable gift tag for you to add to your ornament.Click here to download and print.Happy Crafting!

This is SO stinkin’ cute, Ally!! Oh my Goodness – cannot wait to try this with our 2 eldest Little Mermaids. They will love it! Thanks too, for the printable. Genius and a beautiful touch to make our *obsession* with Frozen a lasting memory and momentous Christmas ornament. Love!
I saw a photo of this ornament on google and I wante to make the nose and the branches out of clay, ,but then I found this tutorial and I am so thankful that I found it, because clay can be quite expensive. Also using salt instead of fake snow is great!:)
