Elf ears are easy and inexpensive to make. They are usually pointed at the top and are slightly larger than normal sized ears. You can choose the colour of the ears to suit your taste or match your outfit. Making your own elf ears is an enjoyable activity that you can do with friends or with kids. The things you will need you probably already have at home. This means you can make the ears without buying craft materials.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Internet pictures of elf ears
  • Hair band
  • Laminater
  • Laminate paper
  • Sticky tape

  1. 1

    Search the Internet to find suitable pictures of elf ears. Type in "elf ears", click on "images" and you should be able to find a pair. You do need to find a pair big enough to print out onto A4 laminate paper, so that when you put them on they will be larger that your own ears.

  2. 2

    Print out the elf ears, then cut them out. Place them between the sheets of an A4 piece of laminate paper. By laminating them, you make them sturdier and longer lasting.

  3. 3

    Place the laminate in the laminating machine; keep the ears flat so that the laminate paper doesn't crinkle.

  4. 4

    Cut out the ears again. Place an ear on one side of the hair band, with the ear facing outwards. Use a piece of sticky tape to secure the ear at the back, so that you cannot see the tape. Repeat this for the other ear.

  5. 5

    Place the hair band on your head in the correct position and you now have a set of elf ears.

Tips and warnings

  • If you do not have a laminater, simply print your ears onto thick card stock so that they are strong.
  • You can try other kinds of ears -- such as Mr. Spock or animal ears -- using the same instructions.
  • Do not let young children play with scissors or with the laminating machine as this could endanger them.
