Ferne McCann shares her easy to copy Elf On The Shelf ideas to inspire fans

Ferne McCann's creative, fun, and easy to follow Elf on the Shelf Christmas ideas have delighted her social media followers.

Elf On The Shelf is a festive tradition that started following the release of a children's book by the same name, written by American author Carol Aebersold.

The tradition involved parents moving Santa's best friend, the elf, to different locations each night before it returns home for Christmas.

And while many parents have struggled with creative ideas daily, former TOWIE star, who enjoyed a trip with her daughter Sunday to Winter Wonderland, shared her own efforts with Elf On The Shelf this year.

In a series of snaps shared to her Instagram platform on Wednesday evening, the 31 year old revealed the different places she had placed Elfie and Elvie.

In one image, the duo rested on a collapsed gingerbread house, while in another, they encouraged little Sunday to brush her teeth by the sink.

Another image showed the toys wrapped in toilet roll on the staircase, while in another, they appeared to be toasting marshmallows over a candle.

Another sweet image showed a selfie of Sunday sound asleep while the duo held up the phone.

Ferne wrote in the caption: "Sunday is SO excited for Christmas this year, it's the first year where she is fully aware of the magic. So I hired the help of Elfie and Elvie to bring a bit of mischief to our home (as if we needed anymore!)

"Although, I didn't think they'd go quite this far… I spent hours on this Gingerbread House. Sunday has been absolutely loving it. @elvesbehavinbadly #pranksmas #ElvesBehavinBadly #Christmas #ChristmasTime."

Ferne's efforts didn't go amiss with her social media fans, who said they would be taking inspiration from her ideas.

One wrote: "Streaking your ideas @fernemccann great effort wonderful mummy."

Another wrote: "@fernemccann love this, your such a lovely mumma xx" while a third noted: "Some good ideas here."

"I'm stealing that toilet roll idea, love it! X" some else said, while another added: "I am so stealing some of your ideas – as we have done this from the 1st December I am struggling."

Another fan added: "You're such a good mom Ferne, can't be easy doing it alone."
