For those of you who follow the Elf on the Shelf tradition, how does your elf arrive? Some of the members of our Mommysavers Frugal Moms Forum responded!
Elf on the Shelf Ideas for Arrival
Have your elf spell out, “I”m Back!” with red and green M&Ms, marshmallows, Christmas Hershey’s Kisses or other festive candies.
Your elf can arrive with a bag of Christmas Treats like this one with “Elf Kisses”. View our other Christmas Treat Bag Ideas
Your elf can arrive with a simple handwritten letter. Or, try one of our printable elf letters including an elf arrival letter.
This elf arrived in a “hot air balloon” crafted out of holiday balloons and a small basket. This would be so easy to recreate with a dollar store helium balloon, some gift wrap ribbon and a basket you already have at home. Photo Credit: BalloonsbyBoo
This elf arrival is very similar, except you don’t need a basket. Photo Credit: NoraandKatie
This elf arrives with a mini Christmas tree (you can get them at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby or other craft stores) and a holiday card.
If you have a toy car, jeep, truck, airplane or train… have the elf arrive in style. This one is driving Barbie’s car.
