christmas elf slime

This project is intended for kids age 6+. All types of Elmer’s® glue work with this recipe; however, one 7.625 fl. oz. [225.5 mL] bottle of white glue was used to make the Christmas Elf Slime, as shown. Protect your work surface with wax (or palette) paper and wear an apron (or other protective garment) to protect clothing from staining.
Step 1

First, paint two small buttons with black multi-surface paint. Set aside to dry.

Step 2

Next, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the shapes.

Step 3

Trace the hat on premium Pirate felt, the ears on Cashmere Tan felt and the zigzag collar on red felt. Cut out the shapes.

Step 4

Brush a generous amount of craft glue around the rim of the jar lid. Attach the zigzag collar, as shown.

Step 5

ADULT: Run a line of hot glue down the tab on the side of the hat and attach to other side to form the cone shape.

Step 6

ADULT: Run a thick line of hot glue around the top edge of the jar lid, then attach the cone hat and the furry craft stem.
TIP: After you attach the hat, you may need to add more glue around the base of the hat to attach the furry stem.

Step 7

Attach the elf ears to each side of your jar with craft glue. Hold in place for several minutes until glue sets.
TIP: ADULT: Hot glue the ears in place instead of the craft glue for a quicker set.

Step 8

Attach the painted buttons to the front of your jar with a dab of craft glue. Set jar aside to let glue dry.

Step 9

To make your Christmas Elf Slime, click here to choose and make from Elmer’s® great recipes.

Step 10

Tint your clear slime Juniper Green. Mix well so the green is even throughout your slime.

Step 11

Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or palette) paper and add your desired mix-ins, such as glitter (or sequin, pom-poms, or even jingle bells!). Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend them into the slime. Continue until all of the mix-ins are evenly distributed throughout the slime.
TIP: To preserve your slime, store your cute Christmas Elf Slime until you are ready to play with it again!
