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.


Acorn with cap attached

Hemlock pine cone or small pine cone


Felt Scraps:  grey, red, orange, yellow



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


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.

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.

  1. Paula, this is just the cutest ornament ever! It would be a perfect gift for that camping family, or a family that loves backyard campfires, or how about added to a gift of something S’mores?
    I’m so glad you’ve joined us for 31 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments!!

    1. Thanks, Laura! I had so much fun making him and can’t believe that it is just about time to hang him on my tree.

  2. This little ornament is so cute. I made pinecone elves last year and I am going to have to make these this year! Thank you for bringing these to my Christmas season!!

    1. Thank you, Malia! I had fun making him and I’m looking forward to hanging him on my tree. I’m getting a new tree this year and it should be delivered this week. Yeah for me!

    1. Thanks, Mary Beth! I have him sitting by my computer and I swear that he truly does have a facial expression!
