Easy Paper Mache Swedish Christmas Tomte or Elf Project
Some days it seems like every holiday decoration tutorial is about paper snowflakes or wreaths or ornaments. While that's all well and good, there are only so many of each of those you can make. For a new, unique challenge, consider this Easy Paper Mache Swedish Christmas Tomte or Elf Project. This cute guy is made out of paper mache products, and is super easy to assemble. Keep him for yourself or give him away as a holiday present. You could even pass him around from year to year in a new holiday family tradition.
