Description
Elves are said to be mischievous and magical characters that make special appearances during the holiday season. These stylin’ Felft (a combination of felt and elf) characters are no exception to the legend. Oversized felt balls are reshaped and paired with industrial wire for an unexpected touch of whimsy. You can stick with traditional red and green, or take it up an elf notch and add your own adornments. Every modern Felft knows that accessories don’t necessarily have to match. Clusters of these little guys cleverly displayed on the mantle or tied to packages are sure to be conversation pieces and delights.
