Our elf on the shelf is mostly nice but just like my kids it gets a naughty itch sometimes and that is when this idea comes into play! I decided to make a whole jail set up for our elf using a candy cane jail. Of course what is a good elf arrest without a mug shot! Of course our elf isn’t too naughty but taking a few of Santa’s cookies will get you into trouble!

Let me know if you have ideas for other “crimes” of the elf and I will do my best to see if I can get them uploaded for you!
The candy cane jail is made out of a package of candy canes and a box. All you need to do is poke holes though the box allowing the candy cane to go through making the jail! Then wrap it up with wrapping paper and repoke the holes. Its easier to have the holes already done! A pencil was the perfect tool! Then stick the candy canes through! If there is a slight gap between the box and the candy canes just add a band of wrapping paper around the bottom. You can still easily remove the candy canes to position your elf.
As a bonus I have some extra scout elf correctional department signs. One is even blank that you can add your own charge too! You can download the PDF here: scout elf correctional department
