Girl Elf on the Shelf

*Warning "Elf on the Shelf" secrets exposed, don't read this post in front of your kiddos :) 

Do you 'do' the Elf on the Shelf?  
Right now my Pinterest and Facebook feed are covered with creative ideas for causing Elf mischief around your home.  Some of the ideas are pretty cute.

While others just look like a lot of work!

I thought this guy was supposed to be encouraging good behavior!

Well last year in our house, that little red elf was not welcome.  For some reason his frozen smile and pointy limbs caused terror. My oldest was afraid he was going to come into her room at night. We had rules that he wasn't allowed to climb the stairs! Finally it got so miserable, that I 'sent' him back to the North Pole.  


This year, she has requested over and over again that Santa send a new Elf. A girl Elf. 




So I did what any good mother would do. I cut off our Elf's head! 



And made a new Girl Elf for my girly-girls. No pattern, just lots of red felt, cutting, and glue.
I re-used almost all of "Fred's" old parts.

"Upcycling" at its best-----Poor Fred! This was all that was left of him.


I am not so sure what she will think of this new Girl Elf. Fingers crossed ;)
