Elf on the Shelf Ideas!

Today is the first day our little Elf on the Shelf made an appearance.  Here she is sitting atop our kitchen cupboards with a cute "Surprise" sign to the delight of our daughter.

I used a fancy candy dish with upturned lid for her to sit in so she could be easily seen from below.  Her legs are bent up in a sitting position with a red rubber band (to blend with her clothing) used to hold them in place.  I then tucked each of her hands into that same rubber band in front of her shins and then pleated her skirt into place.  The sign is a simple wooden skewer with cardboard cut in the shape of a flag taped on.  The skewer tucks nicely into her waist band.

More ideas to come as she causes chaos in our home this season!
