How To Make Frozen Olaf Pinata Easy DIY Tutorial

 How To Make Olaf Pinata Easy DIY Tutorial – It was my daughter’s birthday few weeks ago, as you can see we had Frozen Theme for her birthday party.

How To Make Olaf Pinata Easy DIY Tutorial I absolutely enjoyed crafting handmade decor for her party like burlap and lace birthday banner, white snowy backdrop, Frozen blue tutu skirt, but my favorite crafty project was this Olaf Pinata.

I was so proud of myself since I have never made pinatas before and when I made Olaf Pinata it made me smile to see how happy my daughter Ani was.

It is not hard to make as it seems and it cost me around $5.00 not bad compare to buying it online for $60.00.

  3. Good morning! I have the piñata almost ready, but I don’t understand where it will break and go out the candy, I want to be sure before gluing all parties! I hope you can answer soon, the birthday is tomorrow !!! thank you very much!!

    • Munchkin Time

      Good Morning Marina! I placed candy in the stomach and when we were breaking Olaf his neck broke, so we just flipped him while kids were holding their hands to catch the candy. I hope that answers your question. I would recommend cutting out little hold on the bottom of his stomach (middle part of his body) and not gluing the bottom to much that way kids can break the bottom first then the candy can fall thru the bottom of the middle part of his body. I hope that helps.

  4. Hi! I’m from Croatian! Radim birthday gift my little kumi.Tebam help! I wonder how you cut out the smaller and larger part of the body and merged. That part of me is not very clear. Pre’m very grateful. Ivana

    • Munchkin Time

      Hi Ivana! For the smaller and larger part of the body I just used balloons and newspaper, and mod podged newspaper strips on the balloon. Then I let it dry for one night. So no need to cut anything for the smaller and larger part of the body. I hope that answers your question.

      • Sorry I ‘m not well explained . How to connect the head and neck and neck with the body that you ‘re part of the cut that you can get the form of Olaf. A little coiled shape . For how to connect if you do not cut off part of which connect parts of the body . Of course this is all patched up with hot glue . I hope I have now with my bad English a little better explained . how to connect the pieces and get a little rolled up Olaf. Thanks again !

      • Hi Ivana, I cut out 3 strips and hot glued half of the strips on the inside edge of the mold. I waited tell it cooled then add some more hot glue to the other half of the strips and glue the whole mold to the head. I hope that explains how to attach neck to the body.

  5. You’ve got such an eye for beautiful things and it shows beautifully in your pictures! I love the choice of light and how you arrange your photos! Just truly awesome, good job!

  14. How many days total did it take you?

  15. It looks like you changed the eyes. what did you first use for the eyes to make them stand out 3-dimensional before you put the colored eyes on?

    • Munchkin Time

      I did used foam balls that I got from walmart! I didn’t liked how they looked so I switched them to a paper ones!

    how big are the strips of posterboard

  17. How did you make your homemade modge podge?

  18. This is fabulous! I love it. Pinned and tweeted. Thanks for being a part of our party! I hope you stop by on Monday at 7 pm. We love to party with you. Merry Christmas! Lou Lou Girls

  19. How many layers of news paper and white paper did you use? I want to make sure mine is sturdy but not too sturdy.

    • Munchkin Time

      HI Ashley! I remember doing 2 layers of newspaper – one layer when covering each balloon and then letting them dry, and 2nd layer when connecting balloons together, as for white paper I believe I only did one layer just to cover newspaper. Hope that helps.

  20. How long did it take to dry

  21. I’m about to start making this but was wondering how sturdy your pinata was. How many hits did it take before it broke and how much candy did you put inside it?

    • Munchkin Time

      Hi Angie! My pinata was quite sturdy so it took awhile to break it. I think it depends on how many layers of paper you are going to mod podge to the body. I fill half of Olaf’s middle stomach. I hope this helps.

  22. At which point and into which cavity did you put the candy?
    Great tutorial! Thanks!
