Today is a super fun day, for you and the kiddos! (Plus it’s my 30th Birthday so that is kinda fun too!)
The May Arts Design team is bringing you two days full of Christmas Crafts for kids! I’ve got a fun Christmas Elf kids craft for you.
These elves are a super fun Christmas craft for kids. They perch on a shelf or mantle or could be hung on the Christmas tree, they might even make a cute Elf on the Shelf!
- Small wood plant pot and round wood ball (found at Michaels)
- Hot glue
- Google eyes
- Craft wire
- Martha Stewart Muti-surface Acrylic craft paint (I used light gold for the head)
- May Arts Ribbon- I used 1.5″ Tulle, neutral bakers twine, 1.5″ Sheer ruffle, 1/4″ Adhesive ruffle, floral lace, small pom pom, large pom pom, 1/4″ chevron, Metallic ribbon (this is a perfect project to use up your scraps).
How To Make a Christmas Elf
I think the pictures tell the whole story, but don’t hesitate to ask if you have a question!
There are so many combinations of outfits you could create for these little Christmas elves. I can’t lie, I loved making them!!
This craft would be best suited to kids over 5, with help from an adult with the hot glue, but my little guy loved painting and helping choose ribbons too.
These little Christmas ornaments would make a great gift idea for a grandparent, friend or neighbour that the kiddos can make themselves!
But the fun doesn’t stop here!
