Here's how to create a Craft Stick Elf in 30 Minutes:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Craft Stick Elf, gather all supplies. To create the Elf, line up six jumbo craft sticks on your work surface. Using scissors, trim additional jumbo craft sticks to the width of the Elf and attach them with a glue gun and glue sticks. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Using scissors, trim the two discarded pieces of jumbo craft sticks into pointed elf ears. Then attach to the right and left sides of the Elf with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Paint the bottom two inches of the Elf with Festive Green acrylic paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. For this project leave the Elf's face the natural wood tone, or paint in the flesh tone color of your choice. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Attach two large wiggle eyes to the Elf with a glue gun and glue sticks. Create cheeks with Bubblegum Pink acrylic paint and a sponge dabber. Measure and cut a one-inch section of a jumbo craft stick, and glue it to the Elf’s face as the nose.

Attach the red hat trim to the bottom edge of the green hat with a glue gun and glue sticks. Then glue the red collar trim to the top edge of the green paint, and the hat to the top of the Elf’s head.
Glue one large white pom pom to the top point of the Elf’s hat. Attach small white pom poms to the points of the red collar with a glue gun and glue sticks. To finish the Craft Stick Elf, draw a large smile from cheek to cheek using my favorite MONO Twin Permanent Marker. The MONO Twin is a versatile marker to craft with because it has a larger bullet tip and an extra fine tip, which makes it perfect for all types of applications.
