Do It Yourself Elf on a Shelf is an extremely low-cost, fun kids' project. Elf on the Shelf ideas do not get any better than this, especially since it's made super easy with a free printable. Your kids will have a blast creating an elf that will be brought to life by the spirit of Christmas. Place your kids' new buddies around the house with all of your other homemade Christmas decorations for a cheerful holiday season. Not only is the project a blast for the kids, but you can also hide the elves for a fun game of hide-and-seek!
