Elf on the Shelf Clown Costume
Is your elf clownin’ around? We are not talking about the Penneywise Elf Clown, we mean getting in to silly Elf on the Shelf antics with clean fun appropriate for young kids.
Create an adorable DIY Clown Costume for Elf using a few of these basic craft supplies that might be found around your home.
Elf on the Shelf Supplies Needed
- The Elf on the Shelf Doll
- Rainbow Pipe Cleaners
- Red Pom-Pom
- Double Sided Square Tape
- Optional: Bendable Elf on the Shelf Gloved Hands
To create this DIY Elf on the Shelf Clown Costume, first get a pencil. It does not have to be sharpened. Wrap tightly around a pencil, your rainbow pipe cleaners to create spirals. We used about 6 of each color. Put aside.
Next, make a small crown to create your DIY Elf clown hair. First we made a circle with a pipe cleaner the circumference of Elf’s head. Then we added three bible cleaners around this hat (folding down his red elf hat.) This gave us a base for our DIY clown hair.
Once your clown hair crown is on elf’s hat, begin to attach your spiral pipe cleaners.
Attach a small square of double side tape on Elf’s nose, you can cut down to keep it from being unseen.
Attach a red pom pom for a clown nose.

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.
