Tips to Make Gnomes with Boots
- First, grab some boots. I got my little burlap boots at the craft store here locally, but I did find some online for you. Click here to get some absolutely adorable snow boots that would look so fabulous on your gnomes.
- Generally, I end up making my gnome noses from whatever is on hand. Sometimes it’s wood beads, sometimes buttons. But for this gnome project, it was polymer clay. Why did I pick clay to make this nose? I like breaking out the clay sometimes. If you’re not into clay, wood beads like these work just as well!
- Grab some super cute embellishments for the hat. This time I went with a burlap bow and button to match the boots. You can use anything you can find or make – be sure to browse all of my gnome tutorials for ideas.
- I made this entire gnome a no-sew project by using hot glue. You could absolutely use a sewing machine, it’s just whatever you’re most comfortable with.
- If you’ve never cut faux fur before, do not just go after it with scissors. You’ll ruin the look of it (trust me on this). Watch this video to learn how to cut faux fur for gnomes.
