The elf is back, whether you like it or not.

I don’t have kids (yet) for many reasons. One very important factor? The elf on the freakin’ shelf. Not only is he indescribably creepy (what is he smiling at?!), but he’s a lot of work. 

That’s why I scoured the internet for the absolute best Elf on the Shelf ideas that Instagram, Pinterest, and bloggers have to offer. Because you shouldn’t be in this on your own. 

Though some are more elaborate than others, these Insta-worthy elf antics can be styled with items you probably already have in your kitchen:
