Next up on the Christmas Crafts list was these Beaded Elves. I bought some wooden beads from another eBay seller (trying very hard to support small businesses this year where I can). I had planned to make Fimo faces but the beads were cute and easy. The girls made the hats though.
These are the first goes and I think they are lovely. We’ve got plans to add scarves (Maddy made the fairy one) and try a few different hat designs. The Fimo hats have a hole through the top and are blued to the head – there will be a photo of them all displayed at some point 😉
We found the old style thin pipecleaner (bought from a tobacco seller) worked best but big beads and chenille stems from a craft seller would work too.
Here are some step by step photos of the elf’s insides!
