Frozen Elsa Inspired Hair and Makeup Tutorial

Frozen Elsa Halloween costume hair and makeup tutorialHalloween is around the corner and I am pretty sure we will have many little girls out there wanting to be Elsa! I thought I would do a tutorial for this Elsa Frozen Look, which my daughter was more than happy to be my model for this project!

If you haven’t tried it I absolutely love their primer! Next I used simple snowflake stickers I found in the scrapbooking section which you can find at any craft store.  elsa snowflakeslayla turned elsa

My little one is ready for her Elsa Makeover!

Step 1: I used my Urban Decay Primer all over eye lid

Step 2: Used my light shade of Mac Eye shadow all over the eye lid and under the lash line under the eye

Step 3: I used my darker shade of purple for the corner of the eyes  and used my darker shade on half of the bottom lash line. Because my little girl is only 6 I didn’t want to go crazy with mascara and eyeliner so I only used a little mascara and skipped the eyeliner. Plus I didn’t want her to have raccoon eyes when she started rubbing her face.

Step 4: I used my little snow flakes stickers on the corner of her eyes.

Next I pulled her braid loose to give it the Elsa look. I just pinched the sides and pulled looser.

Frozen Backpack for Back to school

Alright mommies: I know we hate to think about back to school shopping already but it will be here before you know it, so you might as well get a jump start! If you have any little girls that is obsessed with Frozen, guess what they will probably want a Frozen backpack! So instead of running all around town looking for one, here are some options that I found with the best prices. Update (7/5/14) I recently have been to Target and they are getting Frozen folders and notebooks. So be on the lookout! I also found a Frozen Backpack for my daughter at the Disney Store.

I looked around for lunch boxes and found a few that cost over $30.00 and I just think that’s crazy. But here is a tin option.

Unfortunately many sites didn’t have Frozen back to school products yet. I’m sure retailers will get them in stock for back to school but don’t count on it lasting long!

Frozen party goody bag treat bag stuffers part 3

I came across these Frozen word search books last night at Target in the dollar spot section. They are the size of a coloring book, but could be rolled up to go inside a bag.

If you can find these Kellogg’s fruit snacks, they would be perfect for treat bags. I got this box at Super Target, but like Frozen merchandise goes, have yet to find more.

But be warned, the box contains assorted Disney princess pieces. So not every bag has Frozen on them.
ACMoore has a section of these Frozen books. Use a coupon to knock the price down.
Also at target I came across these $1 socks. They also sell Anna themed socks. Located in the Dollar Spot.
I found these small coloring books at Target in the books section. They are $1.89. Not a bad price.  They are small enough to fit in a treat bag.

Frozen Party Ideas

I was visiting the local library and came across Barbara Beery’s Pink Princess Party Cookbook. It has a section on Snowflake Princess Party that would be perfect for a Frozen Party. This book can be purchased at Target, Book stores and Amazon. I love all her cookbooks. I recommend them all.

DIY Frozen Backdrop

Have fun with some wrapping paper! Wrapping paper is one of my favorite items for party’s! There are tons and tons of cute wrapping paper that you can turn into fun projects and not break your wallet!  We have used wrapping paper for backdrops, and table runners and covering up boxes to make stands. For a Frozen Party I found this wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby. Target, Party City and Hobby Lobby always have cute paper designs. Christmas is also a great time to find different types of paper. I found the glitter wrapping paper to cover my furniture at Christmas.
What you need to use for a frozen backdrop:
1 roll of wrapping paper (blue paper found at Hobby Lobby) 
1 pack of Command Brand poster strips
Snowflake Variety. Below the big white snowflakes you can find at Hobby Lobby in the wedding section. Other colors purchased during Christmas time, however can also find  Snowflakes Here on Amazon
The hardest part is sticking your paper to the wall. Get someone to help you roll your paper out while you apply your command stickers. If you try and do it by yourself like I did, you will be fighting the wrapping paper from rolling! GET HELP!  I started applying my snowflakes with my hot glue gun around the corners and worked my way in. Every few snowflakes I applied I took a few steps back to figure out my next snowflake.  After the party the snowflakes easily came off the paper and the old glue peeled off easily.

With more Frozen parties in our future, we are constantly on the lookout for Frozen worthy stuff.
Today I came across some Buttermint cream mints in snowflake pattern. Found these gems at Dollar Tree.

On a trip to AC Moore I found Frozen puzzles. These are about $1.99 a piece, but on that day were $1. Otherwise, you can use a coupon on it.

I also found this Frozen coloring book at AC Moore. It has stickers in it that can be used in treat bags with coloring pages or as decor. It is $9.99 – use a coupon.

Last I found a Ribbon dancer stick at Target in the Easter section for $5. This is great for Easter or for Birthday girl. There were not too many of these.
