Easy Felt Elf Hat Placecards

10 Dec

Felt Elf Hat Place Cards tutorial

If I got to invite any 3 people to dinner one would most definitely have to be Buddy the Elf (sorry Gandhi)!  Of course that’s if he made it through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops.

In the spirit of the holidays invite some friends to dinner with some Buddy the Elf style place card holders.

You will need:

Green Felt and matching thread – Cilantro

Yellow Felt- Taxi

Red construction paper

A gold pen or pencil

Templates (at bottom of post)

For each place card cut one hat shape from green felt, 1 hat stripe from yellow felt and 1 feather from construction paper.

Step 1:

Elf Hat How To

Pin stripe to hat allowing ends to hang over.

The shape of the hat will keep the stripe from sliding down.

Step 2:

Fold over and sew down the straight edge using a running stitch and matching thread.

Step 3:

Paper feather

Cut out feather shape and notch the sides (with paper scissors people! Paper Scissors!!) Add your guests name in gold pencil or pen

Step 4:  IMG_1915

Turn hat right side out and remove pin. Place the feather into the stripe and you’re done! Felt Elf Christmas Hat tutorial

Oh and if Buddy the elf is coming try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.

Online felt supply 140+ colors, wool, wool blend and bamboo felts

So now I am wondering if you could invite 3 people to dinner living or dead who would they be?

Happy Crafting!
