What you’ll do:

  1. Cut into the top of the tube at a slant and fold the cardboard to create a triangle shape in the middle. Repeat on the other side of the roll. This creates a pointy, crown-like top.
  2. Paint the bottom half of the roll a solid color for the outfit.
  3. Draw or paint a belt with a buckle around the center of the outfit.
  4. Paint or draw eyes, nose, and mouth above the outfit.
  5. Using colored paper, cut out a large circle and cut the circle in half.
  6. Create a cone shape and glue together, making sure it fits on top of the toilet paper roll. Two elf ears will be sticking out.
  7. Glue a pom-pom to the top of the cone hat.
  8. Cut the yellow felt into a thin strip for the collar and glue onto the outfit.
  9. Place 1-3 drops of Holly Berries Holiday Blend into the inside of the toilet paper roll for lovely passive diffusion!

  1. Super cute idea! Holly berries is my new favorite scent. I have been into oils for a while but had never found an oil that “fit” me quite so well. I bought an extra bottle in case I run out! I was a patchouli hater before this oil and now I put this oil on all my jewelry and diffuse it when I diffuse! Can’t get enough of it.

  2. Great ideas! Definitely going to try when the kids are on break. I like the kid safe scents, but I really am trying to figure out how I can justify the nonnkidsafe set too!

  3. these are so precious. I’m taking my son to see Elf the Musical tomorrow and this will be the perfect activity to do before we go to get us in an elfy mood!

  4. This looks like so much fun! I love these crafts and definitely need ideas for working these oils into my daily life!

  5. I love this idea. I had no idea that you could use a TP tube to diffuse. I’ve been wondering how to diffuse in a small bathroom, and I think that I’ve just found the solution. Is there a strategy for where exactly to place the oil on the tube?

  6. These are great! I always save toilet paper rolls, so we are ready to go. This will make a great weekend project.

    1. That’s awesome, Sarah! Try not to get frustrated with your first couple of toilet paper elves…Honestly, I had a couple of mess ups before I got them to look cute ๐Ÿ™‚ The hardest part I think is making the ears and getting the little cone hat to fit! But once you get it down, it’s super fun ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. These are adorable! I’m going to have to try these with my boys, Holly berries is their favorite from the winter playland set
