This is the first year we are doing Elf on the Shelf. I have always thought Elf's looks creepy (still do!), but the kids have seen him and want him so bad. So, I'm getting over my issues with him. ;) I am
Since we are doing Elf this year, I figured I would make him a ladder so that he can get up on the tree, when needed. Here is how I did it!
Wooden Square Dowels (2)
Circle dowel (1)
I started by cutting my circle dowels into even lengths to make the "steps". Then I sanded the ends to smooth them out.
Super glue the circle dowels in between the square dowels.
Paint the color of your choice, and add your elf!
That's it! Easy peasy. We will move our ladder around on the tree, I'm sure, maybe even move it to another part of the house when it's ready to get into something else. I see lots of fun in our future with this little elf and ladder.
Does your family do Elf on the Shelf?
I like to link up to these awesome places.
