This Popsicle Stick Elf is just what you need to add a mischievous touch to your Christmas tree! Perfect as a bookmark to keep track of holiday reading!
Do you know what this means: “Ná merye i turuhalmeri”? It means “Merry Christmas” – in Elvish, the language of the elves!
If you’re a Tolkien fan, then I assume your Elvish vocabulary includes common phrases like these. If not, don’t worry, we’re not going to speak any more Elvish. Instead, we’re going to introduce you to a little guy who speaks the language fluently – an elf!
We’re majorly into Popsicle stick crafts these days, as seen with our Popsicle stick Snowman and our Popsicle stick Gingerbread man. These fine men are now going to be joined by another notable personality – a Popsicle Stick Elf!
Popsicle Stick Elf Craft
- Orange and brown craft paper or card stock
- Green cupcake liner (small)
- Jumbo Popsicle Stick
- Red pom pom
- Googly Eyes
- Green paint and paintbrush
- Black marker
- Scissors and glue
How to make the Popsicle Stick Elf Craft:1. Start with the Popsicle stick itself, painting it green and letting it dry completely.
2. Now cut out the elf’s head – make sure the ears are pointy! Flatten the cupcake liner and cut it into halves. Cut spokes into one half for the collar.
3. Cut out a brown semicircle and then cut spokes in it too.
3. Time for assembly! Stick the collar under the elf head and the hair on top, as shown below.
4. Fold the cupcake liner half in half to get a triangle shape. Stick this on top of the elf’s head.
5. Attach a red pom pom to the tip of the hat; make sure it’s securely fixed.
6. Time to give our elf some character! Stick on the googly eyes and use the black marker to fill in the remaining features.
7. Almost done! Now stick on the elf head to the green Popsicle stick and our elf is ready!
Isn’t this guy just adorable! I love how mischievous he looks, like he’s got something cooking in his mind. And if he reminds you of Peter Pan, I wouldn’t blame you – he does look similar! This craft would go well with these craft stick fairies too, so you can build your own fantasy world. So go ahead and enjoy the season, or as the elves would say, “Merin sa haryalyae alasse!”
