day 6: christmas movie / elf!
This Friday night, what better idea then to snuggle up and watch one of the best holiday movies; Elf! I love this movie so much that sometimes (most of the time) I even watch it in the middle of summer. I am a true fan. Here are a few fun Elf inspired gifts & ideas for your biggest Elf fan that I am loving!
1. you smell like beef & cheese letterpress card / Lucky Penny Paperie / $3
2.smiling's my favorite mug / Worded Well / $13
3. the 4 food groups of christmas print / The Oyster Pearl / $12
4. santa! oh my god! card / Invitations by Corinne / $6
And while you're watching, make these cute Buddy the Elf hat ornaments! I helped my boss make these for her nieces and they turned out adorable!
what you need:
Green & yellow 10in x 10in square felt / Michaels / $.33 each
Red feathers / Michaels / $3.00
2in red circles
glitter, glitter glue
what you do:
Cut the green felt into 10 inch circles and cut in half. Wrap edges together to form a cone and hot glue seem together.
Draw an 8in circle on the yellow felt and a 6in circle inside the 8in. It should create a band shape. Once cut out, cut the band in half to create two separate bands. Wrap the yellow band around the green cone and hot glue at seem.
For the finishing touches, stick a red feather in the yellow band and thread the string through the top!
To add a personalized touch, cut out 2in red circles and draw a letter (or initials) with a glitter glue pen (Martha's is my favorite - so easy to write with!). Sprinkle glitter over and let dry. Surprise your favorite elf this year with this fun ornament to hang on their tree!
