Paper Roll Elf

Paper Roll Elf

We had so much fun making this darling little elf. We have since made an entire elf family. What a fun way to start the season off with a great homemade holiday decoration!

  1. This was our first time making a paper roll elf. My children and I looked through our art drawers to find the materials we thought would work to make our little elf as cute as can be!

  2. First with a piece of tape and a small piece of wrapping paper, we gave him some clothes. My daughter got busy cutting the felt pieces into little elf feet, ears, and a hat.

  3. With a little glue, we added the ears, shoes, and wrapped a large piece of felt around the top to become a hat.

  4. For a little more elf flare, we added two fuzzy pipe cleaners to the hat. We wrapped one piece around the base, and used the other to close the top.

  5. With a drawn-on face and a pipe cleaner scarf, this elf was ready for the North Pole!
