Are you looking to have a little Elf on the Shelf fun this holiday season? If so, take a look at these fun and frugal Naughty Elf ideas a try! You will find that it can be so fun and easy to help your Elf on a Shelf get into some holiday trouble. Here is how you can get started!

1. Clubbing Elf
This elf loves to get down to the beat and dance until the dawn. Grab a pack of glow sticks at your local dollar store, activate them, and then tie them around the elf. He will look like he is ready to party in no time. Cue the house music!

2. Boozy Elf
Uh oh! Looks like someone found the booze! Boozy Elf looks great when set out with a bottle, wine corks, and a wine glass. For extra fun, stuff him inside of the glass. Bottoms up!

3. Kitchen Mischief Elf
This elf likes pulling pranks in the kitchen. Have the Kitchen Mischief Elf remove the oven knobs. However the joke will be on him when you can’t cook dinner for him. What a stinker!

4. Toilet Bowl Fun Elf
What is it with boys and their obsessions with toilets? Toilet Bowl Fun Elf likes to pour whatever he can find into the toilet. Prop him up with some candy sprinkles and have him pour them in. What a fun and colorful mess!

5. Doo Doo in the Diaper Elf
Again, little elves love bathroom humor. Find some brown craft paint or pudding and prop the elf so that he is filling a diaper with it. It is sure to give the person who finds it a good laugh!

6. Everyone Poops Elf
Is there anything more funny than the book Everyone Poops? I think not, and Elf loves it too! Make an Everyone Poops Elf when you prop your elf with a roll of toilet paper and the book. It is sure to give the kids a chuckle.

Truth be told, I will be happy when our elf, Snowy, makes his return to the North Pole on December 24th.

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? Β If the answer is yes, has yours gotten into any mischief this year? I’d love to hear all about it.

  1. I have totally been following Snowy’s adventures on Instagram and definitely enjoying them, as much as our Gingerbread Elf’s too πŸ˜‰

  2. You guys take it seriously over there. I would be ready for him to go back to the North Pole too!

  3. We don’t do elf on the shelf, but these are such funny ideas and photos!

  4. These are such cute ideas! I’m with you though, I’ll be glad when our elf “Jack” returns to the north pole for good, we keep forgetting to move him.

  5. OMGosh I so love love all these! too funny!

  6. LOL.. those are some great ones. I love the clubbing elf.

  7. We do not have Elf on the Shelf. I’m not sure I could take another thing this month. πŸ™‚ I’m loving the naughty elf ideas, though.

  8. That is pretty funny! Our elf isn’t naughty. He does enjoy getting sweets and candy from my kids every night, though.

  9. your shelf elf is sooo cute :)…And they can be sweetly naughty as well :)..great ideas..

  10. I have to say that clubbing elf is my favorite! He looks like he knows how to party!

  11. Oh my gosh, these are very funny! I like the everybody poops one! We have that book at my house and the kids love it! They would laugh so hard if our elf did that!

  12. I agree, Elf knows how to party! Hopefully he doesn’t have a hangover in the morning from all that mischief! LOL These were funny. Thanks for the laugh.

  13. No, no Elf on the Shelf here–I have a kitty who causes enough mischief thank you very much! Of course I have no children either or I probably would have one!

  14. Hahaha! It’s rare when I do anything creative with my elf.

  15. I like the sprinkles in the toilet! Very funny!

  16. Our elf doesn’t do any naughty stuff. She’s the good and nice elf and only does nice things. Your elf needs to make a permanent trip to the North Pole.

  17. I love the blue sprinkles in the toilet. Yep, we still have an elf……he doesn’t get into much trouble over here….in fact, this may be his last year visiting us!

  18. I move ours just to silly places sometimes, hard to find places other times, and do pranks the other times.

    You do have to think hard for your elf. You could repeat some of the pranks next year from a few years back. Kids get in trouble for the same thing more than once, so can an elf.

  19. The clubbing elf is cracking me up! These are really funny.

  20. Snowflake comes to our house and he is a little sneaky but not as sneaky as I’d like her to be. Sometimes Snowflake gets really lazy and forgets to move.

  21. I think I have more fun with the elf than the girls do. I love finding fun and creative ways to get ours into trouble every night! Love your suggestions. I need to go find a diaper. The girls would be so grossed out by that one!

  22. Such a naughty elf, clubbing and boozing like that!

  23. Oh my goodness – your elf is off the hook! Our elf has yet to return to us this year. πŸ™‚

  24. These are funny. Our elf is very lazy and doesn’t do anything. haha

  25. I have an elf but I’m a slacker. He hasn’t moved in a few days. Oppps.

  26. Your ideas are too funny! I can’t wait to see what he does next.

  27. We’ve got a plush elf. He’s not naughty. Right now he’s reading a book at the dining room table. πŸ˜‰

  28. Ha – Clubbin Elf – hilarious. I like the fishing in the toilet bowl one I saw someone do. we don’t have an Elf here. he kinds creeps me out a bit — but mostly, I’d forget my job for sure.

  29. I have to admit I had a good chuckle. I have a Elf on the Shelf and I have yet to do anything to get him into trouble. The wine idea is cleaver and cute.

  30. We have the every body poops book! Love this idea!

  31. hahah so naughty and so cute I don’t have elf.

  32. Elf on the shelf … this is the first I’ve heard of him lol probably best I have enough mischief with two naughty cats πŸ˜‰

  33. You know , I also have a doll to accompany me when bored . Maybe someday Elf and my Barbie will met each other .

  34. What a bad little Elf! lol I love reading these, make me feel like a kid again!

  35. The first time I had ever heard of elf on a shelf was after I started blogging. They do look cute!

  36. I don’t have one myself but last night I watched a video a friend of mine made and it was hilarious. It was a spoof of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies and I was laughing so hard I was crying. These are pretty funny as well. I may have to get me one for next year.

  37. we don’t do Elf–but if we did I’M SURE HE”D BE NAUGHTY!!!!

  38. Haha! I absolutely love the idea of Elf on the Shelf, I have to do it next year. Clubbing elf with his glowsticks really made me laugh πŸ™‚

  39. Your Elf is so cute! Thanks for sharing his adventures/misadventures. πŸ™‚

  40. These are absolutely hilarious! You’re very creative with him.

  41. No Elf on the Shelf here! And when we eventually get one, it’s gonna have to be a very TIDY Elf LOL

  42. These are hysterical! I love the clubbing elf!

  43. Naughty elfs are much more fun than the nice elfs! Love these ideas. I like the boozy elf the best.

  44. ha ha!
    No elf on the shelf here…I have way to much to do and I know I would forget to move him/ her every night. Love seeing the pictures of what my friends are doing with their elf.
    Guess I will live vicariously thru them!

  45. I like the clubbing elf, made me laugh. Great ideas.

  46. I wanted to do Elf oh the Shelf but my 14 year old informed me it was just creepy that an elf moves around the house at night when no one sees him. He says he is afraid the Elf would go physco.

  47. I don’t have πŸ™ your elf so cute and naughty.

  48. Hahaha, these are so fun!!! Love clubbing elf πŸ™‚

  49. Those are cute ideas. I like clubbing elf.

  50. We have an elf but he disappears for days. Then I find him hanging on the chandelier or hiding behind a door.

  51. OMG these are hilarious!!! I love clubbing elf! Too funny

  52. I love all the pictures. This makes me want to get an Elf even though my son is grown.

  53. LOL!! Love those! Ours are quite devious too. They tend to get into a LOT of things that they should not be. And yes, I am excited for their return to Santa land!! They are NAUGHTY!!!

  54. Haha, what fun ideas! Love the idea of sprinkles on the toilet! What a fun holiday tradition!

  55. We have taken our elf on trips before, lots of fun!! Love the humor of your elf bet the kids get a good laugh in the morning when they find the elf!

  56. Elf on the Shelf wasn’t around when my kids were young. Too bad, because it seems like fun.

  57. I am so using the light up one I just found some in my drawer and I have been pretty lame this year so far.

  58. Ha, love them! We do have our own Elfie, he doesn’t get into this kind of trouble but does funny stuff everyday. Is it time for him to go back yet? So tedious, but the kids love him!

  59. Oh my goodness. These are funny! I bet the kids would get a kick out of them.

  60. Apparently your elf can’t keep himsELF out of trouble! These photos are awesome – thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

  61. Cracking up over Boozy Elf. He can come to my house. Ha!

  62. You have a super fiesty elf! I guess he has to cause some trouble to help make all the kids look good. :p

  63. Your naughty elf ideas are cute, but I have to say that the whole elf thing kinda creeps me out. The fact that he’s moving around at night while I’m sleeping seals the creepiness.

  64. Heheheh I love the boozy elf. Clubbing is cute too. I don’t think we have any glow in the dark but I do have some empty wine bottles and corks. Kiddo would think that was hilarious.

  65. We have Snowflake, the elf on the shelf that visits us. He hasn’t gotten into too much mischief, but now I have a couple of ideas for him!

  66. Boozy elf is my favorite. Err maybe booze are just my favorite.

  67. those are fantastic. the toilet elf is fantastic. i will be sharing this with a friend that does elf on the shelf.

  68. That is hilarious. You have some great ideas.

  69. LOL, Very funny. We have never done Elf on the Shelf and I am thinking that might be a good thin.

  70. Ha — very cute. We have an elf in the house too. I can’t wait till he goes bye bye. I’m so tired of waking up in the middle of the night (panicked) because I forgot to move him! He hasn’t gotten in trouble this season πŸ˜‰

  71. That is too funny. I am personally a big fan of club elf!

  72. I love talking to my kids about the North Pole, it is a great way to keep the spirit of Christmas alive in our house.

  73. Our Elf on the Shelf has been naughty too. He keeps ending up in the dog’s mouth too, much to my sons’ chagrin.

  74. Okay, those are hilarious and make the whole elf on the shelf thing much more interesting to me!

  75. I’m just not an Elf fan, but you may have changed my mind. My husband and I could have a blast with this (but I’m not sure we could ever show the kids.) Ha!

  76. I have always wanted an Elf on a Shelf. I love all the great ideas you can do with him. I will have to get one for next year.

  77. We have 2 Elves but they are not naughty. these make me laugh!!

  78. The boozy elf looks the cutest. I bet that guests at home who would set out the wine bottle will be surprised to find the elf in the glass.

  79. I love seeing the “Elf on the Shelf” pictures. People come up with some of the funniest ideas.

  80. I always love seeing how creative people get with their elves. Cute (and sometimes gross) ideas, lol!

  81. There are some seriously funny ideas here. I don’t think my kids would understand some but I would get a kick out of them.

  82. I do not have an Elf on the Shelf, but I will say…it’s such a cute concept. I love Boozy Elf.

  83. Hahaha love the boozy elf! Your post just made my day! :))

  84. The Everyone Poops book brings back memories – my daughter read that so many times the pages fell out! LOL The naughty elf sure is busy.

  85. Super funny elfs! Wanted to grab one for my home.

  86. This is fantastic! I love clubbing Elf. Way too fun!!! Great ideas:)

  87. These are hilarious ideas! I love them all!

  88. These pictures are too funny! The diaper one is a top pic.

  89. Those are hysterical! My grandson’s elf is a nice elf because we don’t need him getting any ideas!

  90. Omg great post!!! I so needed a good laugh and this gave me just that πŸ˜‰

  91. I love clubbing elf on the shelf! It is so cute and creative

  92. I really love this shelf elf. Looks so cute. The sprinkles in the toilet looks so funny. Love your creativity as well.

  93. These pictures are hilarious! These are some fun ideas for Elf on the Shelf.

  94. Although I don’t understand the need for them to get into mischief, it’s funny. He was definitely bad!

  95. Haha I like Boozy Elf! I should have my husband do Elf on the Shelf for me. New bottle of wine hidden around the house somewhere each morning? Yup.

  96. We do. No trouble this year. He actually brought good deed challenges for the kids to do. Last year he played Scrabble, strung Christmas beads across the house and used it as a zip line and many other things. I think your ideas are a blast!

  97. I find it amazing the power this elf has.

  98. Lol I love bad elf on the shelf. Boozy elf can hang out with me anytime lol!

  99. Lol these are some really great ideas. I love the doodoo one lol.

  100. hhahaha….how cute and funny! Great job on these.

  101. I do not celebrate Xmas so all this Elf stuff is an unknown to me. I did enjoy seeing you place the doll in interesting situations

  102. I’ve delayed our elves arriving until they break from school tomorrow – but last year they were so naughty, the tied Peter Pan up and stole all of the candy canes! It was pretty hilarious for me and the mister seeing the elves get a telling off.

  103. Haha these are great! Our elf is currently in the barbie playhouse pool lol! Gotta have a little fun right!?

  104. I have to admit those are some pretty funny naughty elf photos. We don’t do Elf on the Shelf but I always get a kick out of seeing what everyone else elves are doing!

  105. This was our elf last year! This year I think he got community service from Santa because he’s been a lot mellower and leaving tasks for the kids involving doing good for others.

  106. So cute! You are really good at that. πŸ™‚

  107. I love the sprinkles on the potty! Definitely a naughty elf you have

  108. I wish my elf was a lot more naughtier! He is so boring and does nothing fun.

  109. The last year of our elf on the shelf, he used the Polly pockets Violet leaving a Hershey kiss.

  110. Ha! How funny! What a naughty little elf!

  111. These naughty Elf on a Shelf ideas are too funny! We didn’t do it this year… I’m honestly too afraid of not remembering to move him each night!

  112. I am not into the “Elf” but I love the Naughty Elf.. So funny

  113. These are hilarious! I love the Everyone Poops Elf… too funny!

  114. Ha! That is one very naughty little elf you have.

  115. LOL – i am so not ready to commit to this elf yet! I know it’s gonna happen next year! FML

  116. We don’t have one but a friend of mine always posts her elf getting into trouble and it makes me laugh every time. I love the poopy diaper one πŸ™‚

  117. My two oldest are too old for this and my youngest is too young. So we don’t do elf on the shelf but I love looking at all the trouble he gets into!

  118. I love a naughty elf! These ideas are too funny. Why should the kids have all the fun?

  119. LOL! I love these ideas. We don’t do Elf on the Shelf, but I’ve laughed at what people put on social media.

  120. Lol gross, the diaper one is nasty! My kids would sure get a kick out of that.

  121. We don’t do this either. But it does look entertaining.

  122. I don’t have one but it sure looks super fun to spot it in your place! I guess it just makes you laugh! πŸ™‚

  123. We didn’t do Elf on the Shelf this year. However, I love your ideas.

  124. Those are nice play photos of your elf πŸ™‚ My husband likes to do that kind of photography since he is into toys πŸ™‚
