I work for a marketing company and my team and I were brainstorming some really fun holiday card ideas. We had all sorts of creative and interactive cards, but we were on a tight timeline so needed something unique, but quick. These DIY Elf Ears were born from our card brainstorming. I knew that my daughter would absolutely love them and boy was I right! If you have a child that loves pretend play or playing dress up, then keep reading and I’ll share how to make these festive elf ears!

DIY Elf Ears Template and SVG File

I designed the elf ears on my computer and then sent them as an SVG file to my Cricut Maker, which made whipping up several pairs of these super simple. If you have a Cricut Explore or Maker and want to make a pair of these, the video below will walk you through the simple process of uploading the SVG file, prepping it and sending it to the machine for cutting.

Don’t have a Cricut? That’s OK too, I’m sharing the elf ear template in pdf format as well. Print it out on cardstock and cut out with scissors and you’re little one can become an elf too!

I hope your children enjoy these simple paper elf ears! My daughter, Olivia, gave herself an elf name, Elivia, and had a grand ole’ time playing elf, pretending to be an elf on the shelf and much more!
