Christmas Elves

I did a little Christmas crafting this weekend, inspired by these pinecone elves. It was really fun and kind of brought out the child in me. These cute little guys are now hanging out in our living room and I smile each time I see them--jolly lil ones!

I followed these directions and changed them up a bit for my preference. Instead of bells I made felted poms and I used extra pipe cleaners for accents. I also improvised a fun collar on one elf. I made sure to use a pipe cleaner inside of their hats, shoes and mittens for bendability (is that a word) and easy posing.

These cuties were easy + fun and the supplies are inexpensive. They'd make a cute decoration for gifts and a fun activity to do with your children too. Enjoy!
