Are you doing Elf on the Shelf in your home? This is our second year and I am trying to step up my game. Here are 10 Elf on The Shelf Ideas I shared a few days ago. This project really only takes about 15 minutes but I think makes your Elf look really cute. If your Elf is a girl, how about making her an Elf on the Shelf Skirt!
Elf on the Shelf Skirt
What you need
8 x 14 inches fabric
4 inch Elastic
- Cut out 8x14 inches in your fabric
- Fold Fabric in half and sew a bottom seam
- With right sides together, sew the ends together
- Cut Elastic to a 4 inch piece
- Fold 1/4 inch down on the top of the fabric and iron to hold in place. Sew all the way around leaving a small opening for you elastic.
- With a safety pin on the end of your elastic, feed elastic all the way through the top of your skirt then sew the ends together
- Sew the casing shut and you have an elf skirt!
