The That's-Not-Olaf Snowman Wreath

I've seen so many cute snowman wreaths on Pinterest, so I finally decided to make one of my own. While making it, I thought of Princess Anna asking her big sister Elsa, "Do you wanna build a snowman?" My daughter loves Olaf, but I decided to make a regular snowman wreath instead of an Olaf wreath. BUT Olaf is on the snowman's scarf. Last Christmas, we had a Frozen themed Christmas tree that's white with blue lights and blue, pink, and purple ornaments, so I stuck to the same theme and color scheme with all the Christmas decor. 

To make this wreath, I spray painted two wreaths of different sizes white. I tied them together. I found a hat in my craft room that I picked up from the Dollar Tree during the summer, and I spray painted it blue since it was a "straw" hat. I glued on a strip of Olaf ribbon and a silver snowflake (ornament).

I cut a strip of fabric featuring Olaf and tied it between the two grapevine wreaths. The silver berries leaves, bow, and bell that I glued on used to be part of a Dollar Tree ornament. 

I used lacy white ribbon to tie on a couple blue mitten ornaments. 

Now our snowman wreath is hanging on our front door. I bought more of this fabric last week to make Christmas stockings. So stop by again soon to see what Christmas decor I make next!
