I will be honest, Gnomes kinda scare the poo out of me. You know the ones with the eyes that always see to follow you everywhere. And not to mention, always bring me bad luck. Well, here is super cute Gnome that will not stare you down haha. Perfect to add to your Spring/Summer decor and then change out the hats if you wish for the different holidays.
Lets get started. Here is your material list:
- Glue Gun
- Canvas Bag
- Something to fill the bag with ( I used beans from the dollar tree. This gives it a nice sturdy base so it stands up. You could also use some polyfil too.
- Material for the hat ( I used some fabric I had on hand. You could also use a sock.
- Wooden bead for the nose
Lets start with filling up our canvas bag with your choice of filling.
When you are finished adding your stuffing, you will finish it off by tying your bag shut.
The next thing that I did, was take my beard material and cut off enough material that would wrap all the way around the bag. Once it is cut, you will hot glue it to your bag.
Alrighty y’all, let’s put our hat on our cute gnome. Take your material of choice and in my case its leftover fabric. Measure it so that it fits all the way around like a hat would and glue it onto your Gnome.
After that was completed, I decided to make a droopy hat. I tied it off to the side, and added a little flower on it. Last thing I did, was take that round wooden bead and glued in on in place of the nose. He turned out so gosh darn cute.
I sure hope you all enjoyed this fun craft. Love to see your Gnome versions. Have fun with it and Happy Crafting!
