2 ways to Make an Elf Sized No Sew Scarf Out of Felt Scraps
I’m positive our elf Josie gets cold when she travels back and forth from the North Pole. So to go along with her elf boots, elf apron skirt, little elf messenger bag, and elf ribbon tutu, I just had to make an Elf Sized No Sew Scarf. This is another easy craft that takes a few minutes and costs less than a dollar to make.

Here’s a quick video on how to make these. If you have any questions, hopefully I answered them below!
Making the Scarf
Time: 5 Minutes
This materials list contains recommended products I use.
I raided my craft room and looked for felt I already had laying around. You don’t need much. I picked green and white to contrast our all red Josie. All I did was cut a long thin strip for the scarf and two white rectangles measuring twice the width of the scarf. I folded it over the ends of the scarf and hot glued it together.
Next I fringed then ends with scissors.
You can also add ribbon trim if you like.In minutes I had a cute little scarf for Josie that cost me nothing!
Giving the Elf the Scarf
I know you can buy elf clothes at a retail store, but sometimes I wonder, when your kids see them sitting on shelves, how do you explain how to give it to your elf to wear? Here are some ideas:
- Wrap and leave them as a present under the tree with the kids with a note to the elf.
- In the past, we have placed them near where the elf is and the kids tell her it’s a gift for her to wear the next day.
- Sometimes, if we leave the clothes on the counter, the elf finds it and magically has them on the next day.
- We have made a mini clothesline or put them in a mini suitcase for the elf.
