Since her daughter’s brownie troop was marching in their local holiday parade, Jenn from Rook No. 17 wanted to come up with a fun project they could wear for the event.  Using dollar store party hats as a base, the girls added their own felt foliage and jingle bell “ornaments” to construct their own adorable Christmas tree elf hats.  They were showered with compliments about their creations, and rightfully so!  And when not in use on a head, these hats can double as cute decor!  [how to make a Christmas tree elf hat]
