I know, I know….Christmas is over! 🙁 But, I never got around to posting this. Maybe you’ll find something that you can save for next year:) These little elves are one of my favorite projects that we do all year. It is one that parents love.
Aren’t they adorable?! Yes, those are their own ears:) I use the distortion tool in Paint Shop to stretch out their ears. If you look closely at the first one, you can see that she has earrings in:)
If you ever decide to do this, you will find that some kids have GREAT ears for this and some kids have TINY ears that seem to be stuck to their heads. You will need to make sure hair is pulled back and out of the way. For the kids with those kind of ears-I have found that sticking cotton balls behind their ears makes them stick out just enough to be able to grab them with the distortion tool and stretch them into elf ears:)
On the day before X-Mas break, we always wrap up our parent gifts to take home. Before we wrap our gifts, we make these little elf hats:) These are equally adorable!! I don’t remember where I originally saw this idea, but we have been doing it for a couple of years now. So cute watching Santa’s little elves wrapping up their gifts!!
And, here’s your freebie:) Hope you enjoy this little elf book page! You can print out your kiddo’s elf faces to stick on these. click on the picture below to get your copy!
