I think I am falling in love with felt again. Actually, I know that to be true. One reason is the wonderful wool blend and 100% wool felt that is so readily available. My go-to source for wool blend felt is Benzie Design. Remember the felt turkey tutorial and the felt pine cone owls? It seems felt and pine cones make a wonderful match, especially when crafting with kids. Today I combined them to make these cute felt and pine cone elves.
Highly influenced by two of my team members who are Scandinavian, it seems these holiday pine cone elves are a perfect craft for December. For this project, I chose five felt colors—red, brick, fern, moss, and blue spruce. I love that color combo!
I found mini pine cones, 1-inch wood beads, and tiny jingle bells at my local craft store. With some scissors, hot glue (you can substitute tacky glue), and black and red pens, these little elves come to life so simply. Oh, what fun you can have making different variations!
Below you will see my step-by-step tutorial and a brand new video tutorial! Download the PDF template for the felt pieces to cut. Or you can download the SVG file for your Cricut Maker to cut. Gather the kids around and do a little seasonal crafting today!
