DIY Disneybound Anna Tank Tutorial

For my best friends bachelorette party, we took a trip to the happiest place on Earth. First day was spent at Magic Kingdom with the second day in Epcot for the Food and Wine Festival. This was the perfect opportunity to Disneybound and I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

FB_IMG_1437590970051-1My Anna inspired tank top from Disney’s hit movie Frozen, was super easy to make. Using a $3 tank from Wal-mart, I designed the adventure wear corset pattern to print on a dark t-shirt iron on transfer. I embellished the top of the tank with gold trim from Hobby Lobby with a simple stitch on my sewing machine, though I am sure fabric glue would work well too if you prefer not to sew.

The short designs were definitely more tedious. I cut out the designs with a razor knife and the whole process took me about an hour.

I had just found out I was pregnant the week before this trip which meant I was super paranoid about riding the bigger rides. So what better to do while my group was riding the new Seven Dwarf Minetrain, meet Anna and Elsa of course! Both of which loved my outfit by the way.

shoesTo really put my outfit over the top, I tried my hand at painting some character shoes to wear. I purchased the shoes from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon, so they were only about $5.

I drew out the design in pencil first and then painted using fabric paint. After the paint dried, I coated them in modge podge and clear coated them to preserve the paint. Overall, they held up pretty well, despite the rainy weather.

Everyone seems to be going crazy over Disney’s latest hit, Frozen. While I certainly can’t blame them (the movie is adorable), it’s been tough keeping up with the high demand for similarly themed parties. Girly-Girl Partea’s has had an overwhelming amount of success with the Frozen princess characters. The ‘Snow Queen’ is by far the most popular character we’ve ever had. Every party from now through December (that’s right-DECEMBER) has a winter wonderland theme. At this rate, I may have to create a SECOND costume to keep up with demand! Though I am wanting to remake the current costume, so maybe it will be just as easy to make two.

My business partner has put a ton of work into perfecting the Frozen themed party. I created the ‘Pin the Nose on Olaf‘ game, in addition to designing water bottle labels, food labels and ‘thank you’ stickers for the gift bags. The decor was beautiful! We made an adorable ‘Do You Want to Build A Snowman’ craft with marshmallows, chocolate chips and pretzel sticks. The food table was simply awesome with Anna’s Frozen Hearts (white chocolate covered strawberries), Olaf’s Nose (carrots), Elsa’s Icicles (Teal Rock Candy) and more.

It was a blast seeing all the kids and their reactions to myself (dressed as Elsa) and my Anna counterpart. I even had one kid tell me she loved me and she wanted me to come to her birthday party next January. How cute!? Sweet enough to melt your heart. I love making these birthday parties so special and can’t wait to see where this venture takes me next.

Pin the Nose on Olaf

We’ve had incredible success with this specific game at our Frozen themed parties. Many people have asked how we made our Olaf. It is really quite simple!

I used two white posterboards (purchased from the dollar store). I essentially used this template to sketch out the pieces. Then trimmed them out and played with different layouts until I was satisfied. Once happy with it, I glued the pieces together. The eyes, front circles and mouth were all colored in with a wide chisel tip sharpie. I cut out the stick arms and head piece and then laid them on a piece of wax paper to paint them brown. The carrot noses were cut from orange paper and stuck on with sticky tack (so they didn’t damage Olaf). We will need to use this again for several more parties.

Paint sticks, dowel rods or a yard stick could be used in the back for reinforcement. We simply taped it to the wall and it stayed just fine. Here is a picture of the completed project. Of course, he looks a little funny without the nose, but the whole idea is for the kids to put the nose in the correct spot! Hope this helps spark some inspiration for your Frozen themed party.
