Pinterest has pretty much taken a simple, yet fun Christmas tradition to an entirely new level. Over the years, instead of just hiding our elves in a new spot, we have had to incorporate some pretty creative Christmas scenes and shenanigans into the mix. I try really hard to create my OWN original ideas. By like day 22, I give... and use Pinterest for sure.
Yesterday, I finished decorating our 5th and FINAL Christmas tree, so it was time for our elves to arrive. Usually, the first night, they just land on the Christmas Tree, but I did want to do a little something fun. While Christmas shopping at Michael's Crafts. I spotted a 1 foot, decorative, wooden Christmas door, with a wreath on it. AS SOON AS I SPOTTED IT, I HAD to have it!! I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. The cost was $12.99, but I used a 40% off coupon. Score!!!
Isn't it adorable?
I just love the way it looks. If it wasn't red and Christmasy, I would consider just keeping in there. LOL!
I have created a general letter that you can use for your child's elf! If you would like to use it and fill in the blanks, click here.
