DIY Elf ornament

Every year we have a holiday craft night and make new ornaments for our Christmas tree. Now that we are about 10 years into this tradition, it is so much fun to get the ornaments out every year and see them spread all over the tree over time! This year we settled on an elf theme for our ornaments, since Elf is most definitely one of our family’s favorite Christmas movies! They turned out SO cute!  The supplies are all super easy to find at your local craft store.

3. Wrap the glued popsicle sticks with your green string or yarn until the entire stick area is covered (you  can let the very tops and bottoms of the sticks poke out).

4. Cut the following shapes from the glitter foam: black (small square for the belt buckle, rectangle for belt), yellow (larger square for belt buckle bottom, 2 small circles for buttons), red (rectangle with triangles along one long side for collar). Hack: use a single hole puncher to punch two yellow holes for the buttons.

5. Glue the black glitter foam onto the string, about 1/3 from the bottom of the sticks.  This is the bottom layer of the belt.
