Elf on the Shelf Balloon Arrival
Balloons are the best way to welcome your Elf on the Shelf back into the home. They are easy to do, usually you have the supplies on hand and balloons can create adorable hot air balloons, balloon bouquets, or can even trap Elf in a funny situation.
How do you get the Elf on the Shelf in a balloon?
It is really easy to trap Elf on the Shelf in a balloon. You will need a couple supplies on hand including a funnel and a balloon pump, but I actually have found them great for using for kids birthday parties and other times of the year. The balloon pump making blow up a balloon very easy and the funnel allows you to insert some really fun things into your latex balloons.
Elf on the Shelf Supplies Needed
To trap your elf on the Shelf in a balloon, stretch your latex balloon with your fingers. Wrap the balloon around the funnel base and sit your Elf in the funnel. Slowly begin to wrap the latex balloon around your elf. Then use your balloon pump to blow up your balloon. Tie off and you are done. Follow the complete Elf on the Shelf balloon tutorial here.
You can also add fun treats inside the balloon like candies or small Elf on the Shelf props and treats.

What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and a elf doll. The book is poetic and in rhyme sharing the purpose of the Elf’s visits. The Elf visits each Thanksgiving. He/She goes and returns from the North Pole each evening. Every morning he can be found in a new location in the house. The Elf has been found in the refrigerator, fishing in the toilet, writing messages on the mirror or hanging from the lights. It is VERY IMPORTANT, the Elf is not touch each evening or his Christmas magic will be lost! Each family is able to name their special elf. The elves return to their home (Santa’s North Pole Work shop) every Christmas Eve. An Elf’s Story can also be found on DVD.
