DIY Easy Easter Gnome Garland

Easter decor to me is all sweetness and fun, so of course I felt the need to make an Easter gnome garland to feature the most adorable gnomes ever. It’s a fun and quick way to use up all of the fur scraps you’re saving.

I would love to see your creations of this fun spring gnome craft hanging on your mantels or tiered trays.

This Easter craft idea is a combination of carrot hats, bunnies, and gnome noses that require all the boops (a YouTube joke). 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. If you’re ready to make a gnome garland, 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. 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. Pull the cut fur piece away from the remaining fur and you’ll have a fantastic beard. Check out this video on how to cut fur to see it in action.

  6. 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.
  7. 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.

Thread a gnome onto the thread, followed by a felted ball, repeat until all of the gnomes are on the thread.
