Note, you want the length to be short enough to fit inside the ornament, but long enough to resemble arms.olaf-piecesmelted-olafThen simply add Olaf’s buttons, arms and nose to the top of the salt.

    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!:)
