Woodland Elf Christmas Ornament

Can you believe that it is exactly two months until Christmas Day?

It’s never too early to start planning for Christmas, especially if you like to craft.

I am participating in an amazing event called the 31 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments.  31 Bloggers and 31 Ornament ideas.  Each day of October a different blogger has shared a handmade ornament and it’s been so much fun to see what has been created.

I can’t wait to show you my Woodland Elf Christmas Ornament.

I am so happy to join an amazing group of ladies for the 31 Days of Handmade Ornaments.  I have been so inspired by the ornaments shared and I think that you will be as well.  You can find links to each ornament at the end of this post.

Let me show you how easy it is to make a Woodland Elf Christmas Ornament.

 

Supplies

Acorn with cap attached

Hemlock pine cone or small pine cone

Twigs

Felt Scraps:  grey, red, orange, yellow

Marker

Cord

Glue Gun

Scissors – This pair is my favorite for small projects or for trimming threads when sewing.

Saw or garden pruners

Supplies to Make Woodland Elf Ornament2

 

Procedure

1.  Use a marker to draw a face on the acorn.  Cut off the tip of the pine cone with scissors to make a flat spot for gluing the acorn into place.  Glue the acorn to pine cone.  Cut a piece of felt and fringe the ends for the scarf.  Glue into place.

2.  Use garden pruners or a saw to cut the twigs to the desired length.  Glue the twig logs together and glue the elf to the logs.

3.  Cut red, yellow, and orange felt pieces to resemble fire.  You can see that I did this free handed and it isn’t perfect.

4.  Glue the fire to the back of the logs.

5.  Glue a section of cord to the logs, hang on your tree, and enjoy!

I just love this little guy!  If you want to know the truth, he’s sitting on my desk beside my computer so that I can enjoy him now.
