Make Your Elf Poseable Hack

Apologies in advance to the people who can’t stand this Christmas tradition 🤣
If you’re not an elf hater, this hack is for you.

I think it’s really strange that Elf on the Shelf isn’t actually bendable/wired internally to allow you to pose him 🤷🏼‍♀️. Fortunately, there are plenty of hacks online that remedy this and require no sewing - ain’t nobody got time for that!
I found this one on YouTube from ‘Dirty Diaper Laundry’.


  • Elf on the Shelf $59 Kmart Australia. I’m giving away a brand new Elf & Book Set (I’ve even made him poseable for you!) Look for my next post 🤗
  • Pliers
  • Wire (I used 1.25mm wire from Bunnings Warehouse Australia $7.50)
  • A thread unpicker
  • Hook & Loop Velcro Dots from Kmart Australia $5


  • Glue gun for the Velcro dots on his hands (note the Kmart ones have adhesive on the back but the glue gun is just stronger).
