Elf on the Shelf Ideas

It is that time of year again the time of the year when we check off our holiday list. It is the time of the year when we decide to take this toy out of the box. The Elf on the Shelf  toy is supposed to go to Santa and tell Santa if your child has been naughty or nice. He or she comes back from the North Pole and creates some sort of mischief, so I gathered some fun elf on the shelf ideas for you to try.

How to Make Posable Elf

The Elf on the Shelf  comes with arms and legs that aren’t posable. I decided to figure out a cheap and easy way to make my Elf on the Shelf Posable.

Elf on the Shelf Ideas

You will need the following items:

Your own Elf on a Shelf toy
Red or white thread
Paper clips or floral wire
Wire cutter (I just twisted the paper clip to break it
Optional Items:
Game Day Shirt for your Elf on a Shelf
Elf Tutu Skirt for your Girl Elf on a Shelf
Elf Couture Skirt

Step 1: Clip the string connecting the Elf’s hands

Step 2: Pull out the stitches in the glove of the elf.

Step: 3 Measure the arm with the paper clip or floral wire. Then clip it to fit into the arm hole.

Step: 4 Push the wire into the Elf’s arm.

Step 5: Stitch the glove up using the red thread. I double threaded the needle. The I put the thread through the glove and through the loop at the end of the thread. I stitched it three times and then I cut off the string.

Finally, you have an Elf whose arms move. You can very easily do the elf’s legs using the same methods. I was able to do the arms in five minutes total and I am far from a seamstress.


How about a note idea for your elf on the shelf.
