Let's face it. We all wanna be a snowman, Anna, or Elsa for Halloween. We may all love to sing 'Let It Go,' but letting go of our hard earned money for a beloved 'Frozen' costume this year certainly makes our hearts go cold. So...who's up for some DIY'ing?

I've seen 'Frozen.' I love it too, and totally plan on developing a love for it in Ella as soon as she is old enough to get it. In fact, I may be a bit ahead of myself, but I spent the weekend making these 'Frozen' pretties for my little pretty and some friends.

You see, I love everything glittery and sparkly, so Elsa is a girl after my own heart. I know that a lot of adults and kiddies alike feel the same Elsa passion as I do, so let's start with her. You can just hop on Pinterest and find all kinds of great ideas for a DIY Elsa costume, but here is one of my favorites that I found: How to dress like Elsa in 6 easy steps.  
Just a quick note...for a child's Elsa costume, never forget the effectiveness and ease of a blue sparkly tutu. Here's some simple instructions on how to make a tutu skirt. Make it, glue some snowflakes on it, and bam! Instant Elsa.

Now, for Anna. I usually try to find costume ideas that don't require sewing, because I am no good at it. However, if you can manage a little bit of sewing, there's all kinds of great ideas in this link: DIY Princess Anna costumes.

Last, but certainly not least, good ole Olaf. Elsa and Olaf costumes are perfect for any couple, siblings, or family. Plus, he's super cute and easy. Get yourself a white hoodie, black pants and some black felt, something to make a carrot nose, and you are Olaf. Check out these cute DIY Olaf costume ideas to get you going.

If you try any of these ideas for Halloween, please send me pics at Shannon.Zimmerman@townsquaremedia.com, I would love to see them!
