We used 550 cord or sometimes known as paracord. You can also use yarn, string and ribbon. We just thought 55o cord was stronger.

  1. this is a really cute idea – an abseiling elf off the shelf would be fun for the kids to see! thanks for sharing at our #OTM link up 🙂 ~ Leanne

    • My Moms feels the same way. It is a ton of fun. Yesterday our elf hid so well they couldn’t find him. He was in the dryer. Mr JEM was so silly. Maybe someone will invent something cool to do for long distant. Do your Grandchildren have their own elf at home?
