' Pine Cone Elves - Sisters, What!

Pine Cone Elves

I randomly came across pine cone elves a bit a go and loved them so much that I just had to make some. 
Seriously, they were so easy and quick to make and just look at them...so darn cute!!!

DIY Pine Cone Elves

Recycled cardboard
||1|| Cut a triangle for the hat. I cut a few paper templates first and wrapped it around a ball until I got a size I liked, then I cut out felt triangle. 
||2|| Roll the triangle into a hat and hot glue the seams.
||3|| Glue the wooden bead onto the pine cone. Hopefully you're more skillful with the glue gun...If you're like me and get a little glue higher on the head like me, don't worry about it, the scarf will cover it up.
||4|| Now carefully glue the cone hat to the head.
||5|| Now cut out that cute little scarf. Make sure it's long enough to wrap around the head. And cut some frills because a scarf just wouldn't be the same without them.
||6|| Now get your recycled cardboard (reduce, reuse : ) ), and cut a small circle and glue it to the bottom of the elf. This will help keep it standing. (If you're planning on making this elf into a ornament, than you can skip this step).
Then grab a fine point marker and dot some eyes on that little elf.
For the little gifts, I made a skeleton box out of cardboard and then wrapped it in brown paper. Then I  wrapped them in embroidery thread. I then glued the present to the elf. 
And there you have it, some cute little elf.
