Halloween 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!
For my Elsa makeup look I used these MAC Shades that I got during the holidays, but you can use any pink and purple eye shadow. I also used Urban Decay eye primer for my base. 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.
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.
Make up part done! Next we did her hair, for my daughters hair I just brushed it back and to the side and started a French braid from the top to the side.
Next I pulled her braid loose to give it the Elsa look. I just pinched the sides and pulled looser.
Elsa doesn’t wear anything across her forhead but my little one insisted we put one on her like we did for Halloween last year! You can find this at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas section. We used those same stickers and added some in her braid like Elsa.
My little one had fun getting dolled up like Elsa for my tutorial!
I must say if I was a witch, I would totally wear this hat. I came across a cardboard witches hat at ACMoore and knew I could do something fun with this. I painted this hat black first, and let fully dry. Next I found this fun vintage looking scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby that I covered my hat with. The best tip I could give you for this is defiantly play around with how you are going to cover the cone before you apply any modge podge or start cutting your paper. It wasn’t hard but took some patience! I found this fun burlap bow that went perfect for my hat that I easily hot glued to my hat.
EK! I cannot tell you enough how excited I am Halloween is around the corner! Fall is my favorite time to craft because we all know I am a big kid at heart when it comes to the holidays, no you can never have enough decorations that being said Halloween décor can be costly and yes I can get carried away! So last year I decided to get my craft on and see what I could come up with on my own! I found a cardboard book that can open up at Hobby Lobby ($4.99) use a 40% coupon app if not on sale makes it $3 bucks. I painted it black and used a gloss black paint. I headed on over to the scrapbooking section and picked up some Halloween scrapbook paper. Always try to stock up when you see advertised 50-60% off! Once your paint is fully dried cut your paper to fit your book. Brush modge podge where you want to lay your paper and then brush the top of your paper with modge podge. When I lay my paper down I use an old credit card to try to avoid bubbles! I found my Eat Drink & be Scary printable at Hobby lobby, it came in a pack of three in the craft section.
Warning: because these books are so easy they become addictive and are so much fun to make!
Pretty sure you all have seen Hocus Pocus, if not you all are cray cray as my daughter would say and need to go watch this amazing movie. Anyway for my daughters Halloween party we had a witches ball. And because my older daughter is obsessed with witches we had all the little kids make their own potion for a fun activity. I found these cute little bottles at Hobby Lobby. I waited until all the glass products were 50% off so I could get a good deal. I paid less than $1.00 a piece.
Next all I bought was these little plaques in the craft section that I hot glued to the jars.
For the potion we used spider & bat confetti and a spider ring that I cut the ring part off. Next they mixed it up and poured into their jars.
Little Test Tubes I found at Target in the $1 section
I just love these!
Little Halloween Favors for my little witches!
