Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?
We don’t but, my niece and nephew do, and my sister is a busy single mom, so I help her as often as I can. One of my favorite ways to help during the holidays is to come up with easy and fun activities for their Elves.
Last year, I shared several easy ideas for my niece and nephew’s elves.
One of their favorites was the DIY Bed for Dolls and Elves.
I used Cricut Chipboard and modified a Cricut Access cut file to make them.
So, when I was thinking of Elf projects for this year, I knew I wanted it to be something similar. Since both my niece and nephew love hot cocoa, I decided to make a Hot Cocoa stand for their elves.
This project was really easy and so much fun to make!
Elf on a Shelf Hot Cocoa Stand
Mini Hot Cocoa Stand Supplies
Cricut Maker and Knifeblade
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Optional – Small Craft Wreath and Ribbon and Twine to make a banner
Open this cut file and send it to cut. Don’t forget to use masking tape to help hold the chipboard on the cutting mat. This project will take a while to cut because it’s chipboard.
Once all of the pieces are cut, begin assembling the Hot Cocoa Stand. There are two side pieces, a front panel, a top, and a top sign and supports. I added a bead of hot glue to the inside corners around the whole Hot Cocoa Stand to help make it more durable.
Paint the assembled Hot Cocoa Stand. While the paint dries, weed the excess vinyl for the sign.
Once the paint is fully dry, apply the vinyl on the sign.
Optional – I hot glued a small craft wreath to the front of the Hot Cocoa Stand. But, I thought it still needed a little more, so I hot glued ribbon onto twine to make a tiny banner. Then, I hot glued the banner onto the Hot Cocoa Stand.
I absolutely love the way it turned out, and I can’t wait for the kids to see it!
