Elf Yourself! How to Make Holiday Treats Little Elves Will Love

Whether for your kids, classmates (or the elf herself!), these adorable easy-to-make elf shoe gift bags are the perfect pair-ing for holiday treat sharing.

  1. First, you’ll need a few goodies to go in your elf shoes. I picked up a few of our favorites and portioned them out into cellophane bags. Here’s a list of snack favorites we picked up at Publix:

    • Smartfood Popcorn (original)
    • Rold Gold Pretzels (tiny twists)
    • General Mills Lucky Charms Cereal
    • General Mills Cheerios Cereal
    • Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal
    • Capri Sun Organic Juice Drink (Fruit Punch flavor)

    And a few basic materials:

    • Scissors
    • Glue or glue gun
    • Paper lunch bags
    • Clear snack bags
    • Red cardstock paper or felt
    • White Pom Poms

  2. Next, cut out an elf shoe shape. Use felt or cardstock and fold page over so that you are cutting the shape twice.

  3. Glue cut-out shapes to each side of white lunch bag. Trim the top of bag and fold over sides to create opening. Glue one white Pom Pom to the tip of the Elf Shoe.

  4. Fill your elf shoe with snacks.
