Scout Elf Return Week Idea: Red Carpet – The Elf on the Shelf

You’ll Need:

  • Red fabric (about 10 yards)
  • Scissors
  • Sturdy tape
  • Paper
  • Markers


  1. Cut the red fabric into a long walkway, making it whatever width and length you need to based on where you plan to place it in your home.
  2. Using tape, secure one end of the fabric to a mantel, shelf or wherever else you’d like your red carpet to end—and your Scout Elf to land!
  3. Let the rest of the fabric drape and run along the floor.
  4. Make your Scout Elf’s arrival complete with a hand-crafted note welcoming them home for the holiday season!
