Christmas Elf Ornament Paper Quilling


This charming paper quilled Christmas elf ornament is made entirely from 1/8" and 1/4" thick quilling paper. This little elf is approximately six inches tall. He has a green and white striped shirt, black boots to keep his feet safe from the snow, and a tall red and white striped elf hat.* Because he is made of paper, this little guy is lightweight and will not make your tree branches droop! He hangs from an "invisible" string but will stand on his own feet as well. He is coated in a sealant which makes him water resistant and UV resistant. Unlike some other quilled ornaments, this little elf is fully 3D, including a round head. He does not have a flat head as you will find with some other 3D quilled pieces. He will look cheerful and jolly from all angles!  

All ornaments will arrive in beautifully packaged boxes wrapped with a ribbon and optional gift tag, ready for giving. 

You may choose from two sizes: large 6 inches or small 4 inches.

Large: approx. 2in wide x 6in tall  (5cm x 15cm)
Small: approx. 1.25in wide x 4in tall  (3cm x 10cm)

This item is made to order which means I will make you a fresh piece as soon as you order. Your piece will look nearly identical to the photographs provided. Small variations may be present, as each item is one of a kind.


If you like this and prefer a different size or alternate features (brown boots instead of black, all white hat, brown skin, etc.) just send me a message and I will be delighted to make you a custom piece!

What is quilling?

Quilling is also known as paper filigree. It is an ancient art form that involves curling, rolling, looping, scrolling and coiling thin strips of paper into various shapes for decorative and artistic purposes.

All of my quilled paper jewelry is what I like to call "rain or shine", as I carefully hand-paint each piece with a sealant that makes it water resistant and UV resistant. This sealant also provides a sturdiness to the paper which makes it just as robust as "regular" jewelry. I do not recommend swimming in or sitting on your quilled paper jewelry :) but it is suitable for everyday wear. As with all precious jewelry, careful storage of your paper jewelry is also advised.

The personalized elves from Sweethearts and Crafts are adorable. You can customize the skin tone and hair color of your elf so it resembles your child or grandchild, if you like. They are so sweet and perfectly lightweight for your tree branches. I thoroughly enjoy all of my ornaments and jewelry from Sweethearts and Crafts.
