Easter’s all about sweetness and fun, so of course I felt the need to make an Easter gnome garland to feature the most adorable gnomes ever!
Easter Gnome Garland
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have the best time making farmhouse decorations featuring gnomes. I mean, they’re just so cute and fun, but the thing is, they’re sweet! Even more so around Easter and spring when the gnomes go all bunny and carrots, pastels and candies. I can’t get enough! So, I felt like I needed to make one more adorable Easter gnome pattern for my Easter decor this year.
It’s a combination of carrot hats, bunnies and gnome noses that require all the boops. I wanted to do more (always more) but I decided that two variations in one garland was ok for the time being because I wanted this to be a fast craft anyone could tackle. Plus, bunnies and carrots capture the essence of Easter. So, if you’re ready to make a gnome garland that’s so sweet you want to boop them all, let’s get started.

Tips to Make This Spring Gnome Garland
- First, click here to get the pattern for the gnomes or click here to get the pattern for the gnomes with the cut files. Yes, you can use your cutting machine to cut the hats, but it’s not necessary. Just do whatever works for you!
- Although I chose to use felted balls like these for the fillers between the gnomes. They’re simple and fun. But you can use almost anything. For example, I used cinnamon sticks for my little reindeer gnome garland, then I decided to use pink and purple felt balls for a valentine gnome garland. There’s no “wrong” – just whatever works for you!
- If you’re not feeling experienced enough to cut faux fur or you’re just not sure how to cut it to make it look decent, don’t worry, I love helping. Just flip the fur face-down on the table and, using a razor blade or craft knife, cut ONLY the fabric backing into the triangle shape the size and shape of the one noted on the pattern for the beards. Then you can pull the cut fur piece away from the remaining fur and you’ll have a fantastic beard. Check out this video to see it in action!
How Do I Make this Easter Gnome Garland?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. View the video tutorial for the Easter gnome garland here.
- Scraps of Mongolian Fur in White and Grey
- Premium Felt in White, Green, and Orange
- Embroidery Thread in Pink and Orange
- Green Felted Balls
- 8 - 1/4-inch Wood Rounds
- Easter Garland Gnome Pattern
- Easter Garland Gnome Pattern with Cut Files, optional
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Sharp Scissors or Cricut Cutting Machine
- Razor Blade or Craft Knife
- Thin Paintbrush
- Embroidery Thread & Needle
- Thin Black Marker
- Cut the following: 4 - Triangle hats from orange felt, 4 - Bunny Ear hats from white felt, 4 - Carrot Tops from green felt.
- Fold the green carrot tops in half and hot glue them as folded. Glue each of the green carrot tops to the tip of the orange felt hat shapes.
- Fold the orange felt hat shapes in half, wrapping them around the green carrot tops and hot gluing the hat into a cone shape. Then, with the thin black marker, sketch horizontal lines across the front of the carrot hats.
- Cut four beard shapes from the grey Mongolian fur and tuck one inside each carrot hat. Hot glue it in place on the back, inside of the hat. Split the faux fur just under the edge of the hat and hot glue a gnome nose in place to the fabric backing of the faux fur. Wrinkle the hat over the nose and hot glue it in place. The carrot gnomes are complete, so set those aside.
- Fold the white felt bunny ear hats in half, gluing the bottom portion together. Tie the ears one of the other once, making them snug, then trim the bottom of the hat straight.
- Using the thin paintbrush, add a bit of blush into the center of each ear, then hot glue the ear in place at the knot.
- Cut four beard shapes from the white Mongolian fur and tuck one inside each bunny hat. Hot glue it in place on the back, inside of the hat. Split the faux fur just under the edge of the hat and hot glue a gnome nose in place to the fabric backing of the faux fur. Wrinkle the hat over the nose and hot glue it in place. If desired, add whiskers to the bunny gnomes with embroidery thread. The bunny gnomes are complete, so set those aside.
- Cut a long (3 to 4-foot) length of embroidery thread and thread it onto an embroidery needle. Thread a gnome onto the thread, followed by a felted ball, repeat until all of the gnomes are on the thread. Then it's time to tie a knot into each end of your garland and hang it!
