I found this on Pinterest and I thought it would be fun to share!
- Paper Plate x2
- Kids Washable Paint
- Cotton Wall Balls
- Black Sharpie
Step 1: To begin, mix the paints to create a skin tone and then paint half of the paper plate a skin coloured shade. Paint the other half of the plate a bright vibrant colour, filtering down the rim of the plate to create a ‘droopy’ hat shape.
Step 2: Add a few cotton wool balls to the hat, with an extra cotton wall ball added to the tip.
Step 3: Add some facial features! We added a big red nose and a pair of eyes, with a smiley face using a red paint and a sharpie. Of course, the Arty Crafty Kids can create their faces however they chose, and they could replace the black dotty eyes for googly eyes!
Step 4: Having mixed our paint on a paper plate, we then reused it to create the must-have Elf Ears!
Step 5: Cut out two ‘Elf Ear’ shapes and secure them onto the Elf with PVA glue, finishing off the Paper Plate Christmas Elf Craft.
