How to Make a Pumpkin Snowman & DIY Pumpkin Olaf!


How to Make a Snowman Out of Pumpkins

Halloween is long over… what do you do with your leftover pumpkins?  You know, the decorative ones that are suitable for cooking?  You make a snowman of course! How to Make a Pumpkin Snowman I saw the inspiration on a friend’s facebook profile and a lightbulb went off – genius idea!  So before sending your pumpkins to the curb, make a winter decoration to last all season long.  And if you are a Frozen lover, you could even make a Olaf Pumpkin Snowman… do you want to build a snowman? (Sorry, I can’t get that song out of my head…)

DIY 15 Minute Pumpkin Snowman

All you need is some spray paint (any cheap kind will do), sealer, paint (for details like eyes, nose, buttons, etc.) and any decoration for Mr. Frosty.  Spray paint the pumpkins white.  Let it dry (this is the longest step of the project!).  Paint on eyes, cheeks, buttons (in whatever color you prefer).  After the paint dries, spray the pumpkins with a sealer to help it last through the cold and wet winter months.  For Frosty’s nose, you can paint a broken paintbrush orange and glue it on.  Don’t have a broken paintbrush?  Be creative and find something around the house, or you could even buy a small cloth or silk carrot at your local craft shop.  You can use straight pins to attach a scarf or bow.  You could even put twigs into the snowman for arms, but if you punch them all the way through the pumpkin, your snowman won’t last as long before rotting.

How to Make Olaf Out of Pumpkins

There are infinite directions you can go with this project, but one that my daughter would love is an Olaf Pumpkin Snowman! You can either draw Olaf’s face freehand, or print out a Printable Olaf Page (like this one) and cut it out to trace features like Olaf’s eyes and mouth.  You could even attach three twigs as “hair” to the top of Olaf’s head to make him even more realistic!
