I found this bald, bulging-eyed, sort of scary-looking elf on a
lilypad at my local Goodwill store. I knew I could give it
a "Darling Touch" makeover.
Step one. Using a screwdriver and hammer, lightly tap to remove elf from lilypad.
Step two. Wash elf and paint on hair, nicer eyes with eyebrows, and peach-colored lips to replace the bright red.
Step three. Apply glitter on trim of elf costume.
Step four. Glue on a snowflake "hat" (with the best British fashion-forward inspiration) to cover chipped section.
Step five. Give this cute little winter elf a home, using a vintage milk glass plate (that looks a lot like a snowflake), a Goodwill glass cloche with a vintage porcelain drawer pull on top, and some tiny snow-glittered trees.
