Best Halloween Elf on the Shelf Ideas and Accessories
Yes, I know the elf on the shelf doesn’t normally visit until December with the North Pole Breakfast, but in our house, we have a Halloween Elf on the Shelf too!
We love Halloween in our home and it is normally the first time the Elf on the Shelf makes her annual appearance!
We mummify the elf on the shelf and often have a switch witch that pays a visit too!
Honestly, I know I am mad, but the kids absolutely love it!

Elf on the Shelf Halloween Ideas
The Halloween Elf on the Shelf comes and decorates our home the night before Halloween.
It, of course, wasn’t the Christmas elf, Twinkletoes, it was her cousin!
But the Halloween Elf, who still remains nameless. Would be wearing some sort of creepy Halloween costume and would leave little spooky gifts. Like lots of creepy spiders, or a Halloween book.
She would report back to Santa when they returned to the North Pole, straight after Halloween. Sort of like a pre-check up, before Twinkletoes, comes on December 1st.
For more information on the elf check out our Elf on the Shelf 101.
Our Halloween Elf on the shelf doesn’t move other than decorating the house of course!

Elf on the Shelf Halloween Costume
I try and mix things up each year with our Halloween elf, and I have come across these accessories.
She is always wearing something “scary” though.
My favorite was pictured above, where we mummified her. I found an old white tea towel and ripped it up, and added some red food coloring! A nice free elf on the shelf costume.

Switch Witch Elf on the Shelf
This is a good witch that takes some of the kid’s sweets that they have received while trick or treating and changes them into a toy! This works really well for us as my son doesn’t really like sweets or chocolate.
In fact one year someone had some fruit in their bowl and he was apparently the only child that actually opted for fruit!! Check out the Switch Witch here.
