DIY Felt Gnome Lavender Sachet
If you’re new to Ruffles and Rain Boots, I’ll let you in on a secret: I love making DIY gnomes. Scandinavian gnomes, Nordic gnomes – whatever you call them, they always make me smile. And it turns out, I’m not the only one who wants to add these cuties into their decor as gnomes have exploded in popularity over the last couple of years.
A friend of mine, Herchel, is going to share her adaptation of one of my little DIY gnomes. I hope you love it as much as I do.

My name is Herchel Scruggs, blogger behind Gym Craft Laundry and the maker behind the oh-so-adorable lavender sachet gnomes.
Last summer, my daughter and I adapted Sarah’s Scandinavian Christmas gnome tutorial into a hanging ornament to declutter our craft stash. We didn’t have clay at the time so my resourceful little helper used an Apple Jack (of the cereal variety) for the gnome’s nose. We had such a good time that we went out and bought clay to make a gnome that would last a bit longer and not attract bugs to the tree.
Reasons You Should Make This Gnome Lavender Sachet
Here are a few reasons you need these adorable little relaxation-inducing gnomes in your life:

- Gnomes help you channel their hygge-inspired calming benefits (the lavender helps, too).

Before You Get Started with this Quick Gnome Craft
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we make a LOT of gnome crafts. I love to share things I learn through a project, so here are a few tips:
- Use up your scraps! This is a scrap-busting project, so get creative with the materials you have in your stash. If you have dried rose petals, use those. If you have fabrics instead of felt, those will work, too!
- If all you have on hand is a wide-weave burlap, add a cheesecloth, muslin, or other thin fabric liner so the filling stays in place.
- When using a flimsy fabric (that won’t hold its shape like felt), stuff the gnome hat with Poly-fill or fabric scraps.
- If you don’t have any dried flowers on hand, no problem. Scent scraps or Poly-fill with essential oils.
