The daily Elf scenes have been a big hit with friends and family

Sutton parents' Elf on a Shelf ideas - with a cute twist

Sutton parents Ian Butler and Chelsea Coulson have been entertaining friends and family with their own version of Elf on the Shelf – using their three-month-old baby, Reign, in a starring role.

It was originally three-month-old Reign’s Mum, Chelsea, who came up with the idea so Dad Ian, who is a pub landlord and part-time photographer, agreed to take the pictures if Chelsea came up with enough ideas to cover up until Christmas Eve.

Dressing Reign up as a cute little elf called Bubbles, they photographed her mischievous antics each day to upload to social media.

The pictures were a huge hit with friends and family.

We have selected our favourites for this gallery, so have a look through and take inspiration for your own, or just to look at the adorable little elf getting up to some pint-sized mischief.

If these don’t get you in the Christmas spirit, then we are not sure what else will!
