Isn't he the cutest?
To make the "body" part of the costume, I started with an oversized turtleneck from Walmart that I got on clearance for $3. (It's big so my little guy will be able to wear a jacket under it for trick or treating.) Then, I made some pom poms and used hot glue to attach them to the front of the shirt. Finally, I cut the legs off a pair of old tights and pulled them over the sleeves of the turtleneck (to make arms), and I added a pair of black stretchy gloves from the dollar store.
To make the Olaf hat, I started with a plain white hat that I got at the dollar store for $2.
Then, I cut all the facial features out of felt. You can use the template below as a guide. Just right click on the picture below, save it to your computer, and print the 8X10 photo.
I stitched the eyes together, and I stitched the nose together, but if you are looking for a "no-sew" option, you can use hot glue to assemble the pieces.
Then, once the pieces were assembled, I attached everything to the hat with hot glue.
Finally, I cut a small slit in the top of the hat, pulled through a couple of pipe cleaners, and secured them in place with some hot glue.
And if you are looking for an even easier option, I designed a cute, paper Olaf hat template that you can download here.
