Elf on the Shelf DIY Messenger Bag

Easy No Sew Elf on the Shelf DIY Messenger Bag

I have come up with so many Elf on the Shelf ideas over the past couple years.  My first taste of it was just a couple years ago and now I am obsessed. I enjoy it so much because I love getting creative and my daughter gets so excited when Josie comes to visit her.  It’s worth every minute, even when I forget and have to get out of bed in the middle of the night. This time, I made an Elf on the Shelf DIY Messenger Bag. After all, Santa does send messages every once in a while. You only need three things to make it.

This craft only takes a few minutes and costs pennies. I actually had an old jewelry felt bag that I had that gave me the idea.  If you don’t have one, simply glue one together with red felt and a hot glue gun. I cut a little white strap and glued it to the inside of the bag.

Next, I cut a little fringe out of green felt scraps.

I glued it on top. That’s it! Super easy!
