Frozen Inspired Olaf Upcycled K-Cup Craft

If you are like me and you have a little Frozen lover in your house (and also a Keurig) then you are definitely going to want to put together this fun Olaf craft.  I always look at those little cups after I am done knocking back a few (coffees that is) and think what a waste to just toss them out! So while playing around trying to figure out what I  could make out of them I thought- hmm snowman… but being the mom to a Frozen obsessed daughter I didn’t think just any snowman, it had to be dear sweet Olaf- Who likes warm hugs! 2 empty k cups, a hot glue gun and a few art supplies and you can have your own upcycled Olaf craft. If you have a craft stash you likely wont even need to leave the house to put this guy together-an awesome and free craft!olaf

On the same cup poke holes near the opening of the  cup for arms, make them large enough for your twigs to fit in snugly.

Cut a 2″ piece of black chenille stem (pipe cleaner) and also a 1/2″ piece, poke them through the hole in the bottom of the cup for Olaf’s hair. Add a bit of hot glue around it to secure.

Poke twigs through holes in side, again secure arms to cup with hot glue.

Cut a 1″ piece of orange chenille stem and bend it into a carrot shape, hot glue onto center of cup for a nose.

Cut black craft foam into an almost pocket shape that stretches out on the side, then cut out his white teeth- use hot glue to secure both.

Use your sharpie to draw on buttons, and eyebrows.
