Earlier this year when I went to Swiss Days, which you can read about HERE,
we ran into my Aunts and cousins. One of my Aunts bought some
cute Elf wood block letters. I honestly don't even remember what they look
like but the whole idea of the Elf Letters have stuck in my head.
I knew with my hubby's handy skills I could make some myself.
So I did just that!!
Today I have a tutorial for you on how I made mine.
Here is what they look like:
How to make them:
First off, my super amazing hubby cut out the wood letters for me.
Don't mind the coloring on the blocks.
My 2 year old found a marker and decided it would be super fun to color all over them!! Oh well, I didn't worry too much because I am covering them up!!
First, I painted the letters red with craft paint.
You can still see the fabulous artwork from my baby, but that's ok because here is the cute scrapbook paper I used to cover that up!!
I traced each letter onto a piece of the scrapbook paper. I cut that out to fit the size of the letter exactly. Then I used mod podge to get the paper onto the wood.
When those dried, I sprayed glitter spray over them to give them a little Elf Sparkle!! I did 2 coats of that on them.
When that fully dried, I put ribbons around each letter and then cut some white felt for the "L" to help make it look like an actual Elf Shoe.
Now for the Elf Kisses.
I bought a vase at the dollar store awhile back just waiting for the right project. This was it!! I also bought 2 bags of Hershey Kisses.
I got on my photoshop and created a cute label that says "Elf Kisses". I have made that available to you to download for FREE! Go HERE to do that!
I cut it down how I wanted it and laminated it so it would be protected on the jar.
I got out some red glitter ribbon to put around the jar.
I cut that down to size and then hot glued everything to the vase.
It's simple, but cute. I didn't wanted the main attention to be on the letters since this is going next to them!
Here is what they look like together:
I love love how it all turned out!!
