My Shelf Elf

I added hair, fancy ribbon and a lace skirt.


The children's librarian side of me loves gifting kids books.  This year one special kid in my life is going to get her very own Elf on the Shelf book with a new and improved Shelf Elf. 

Oh what fun it is to craft and play!



  1. Awesome! You are so cute. I was totally thinking about getting our kids an Elf on the Shelf for next year, and would never have thought to alter the elf.

  2. I am going to be getting 2 more elves (one for each of my children) and wanted to personalize them. Was it difficult to separate the hat from the dolls head?

  3. Hey Alicia-
    I didn't take off the hat. I first sewed hair on the rim of the hat. Then I put the ribbon trim over the edge of the hair sewing it over the white rim of the hat. You can get strands of the hair at the craft store. Good luck! It was a fun project to do.
