This Upcycled Christmas Tree Gnome is a Fun Porch Gnome for Winter!
This easy and fast porch gnome tutorial is so cute when you’re done. I can’t believe it took me this long to make my own Christmas tree gnome.
Christmas Tree Gnome
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we just love making gnomes. They’re just the cutest things to ever come out of my craft room. But they don’t need to LIVE in my craft room. No, I want them meeting me at the door of my house, hanging out in my kitchen and so much more. That’s what got me thinking about making a fun Christmas tree gnome for the holidays.

Tips to Make This Porch Gnome
- I grabbed the material to make my hat from the Target Dollar Spot. There was just the perfect little scarf sitting there and I couldn’t help but picture this gnome wearing THAT hat. But you could use flannel, fleece or anything you have laying around. You could even cut up an old sheet!
- If you don’t have an old Christmas tree to use for your branches, don’t fret. You could very well find one at a thrift store or even buy a cheap one off the clearance rack. You don’t need a large tree, I think mine was just a 4-foot tall one, honestly. And I didn’t even end up using more than about half of the tree.
- Using a pre-lit tree is not as easy as using one of the older trees that isn’t pre-lit (speaking from experience here) because the pre-lit trees have all the wires and the branches are usually attached firmly into the base. But, because you’re disassembling the tree, you just need to plan on cutting those branches off and cutting the wires (with the tree unplugged, of course).
