AW: My own "Elves on the Shelf!"

Hi ladies!


Just thought I'd show off my handmade elves! I made one when I was in the 7th grade and it would always sit on top of my parents' armoire -then it went missing a couple of years ago :( so I decided to make a family of elves -one for me, DH, baby, and even dog :) The "B" one is darker since our dog is a black Lab ;) Sorry for the blurry pictures...

INSTRUCTIONSSS!!!!! we only have 85,000 letter blocks, and rather then continuing to kill myself tripping over them (bc my daughter doesnt have the patience to watch me build her a castle and knocks it down) i NEED to make these. ASAP.

Lol Kelly -I know the feeling... before I had Megan, I was a daycare teacher and would *try* to build epic towers and the kids would always knock them over as well (how rude! ;) They're actually really easy to make. You just need:


*felt


*pom poms or bells


*wooden heads (you can find these at craft stores)


*glue gun


*scissors


*alphabet blocks


-I cut out the legs and arms (long narrow oval shapes) and hats (triangles ;) and 2 flower-looking shapes per elf for the collar (under the head) and part of the hat. 


-hot glue the hat together by folding it into a cylinder like shape (this is the part where I always burn myself -ouch!)


-glue the legs under the block and the arms on either side adding the pom poms or bells onto the ends.


-glue the collar on top of the block, then glue the head, then the flower shape, then the hat and glue a pom pom or bell on top of the hat. Voila!


Here is a link to a variation:
