Tips to Make this DIY Farmhouse Gnome

  • Based on my Icelandic Lovey Gnome Pattern here this gnome works up fast. There’s more than just the pattern for this one tomte in here, too. I made 4 different gnomes, plus the optional arms, legs/boots and a reversible hat – all in one pattern!
  • If you want your cutting machine to do all of the work for you, get the farmhouse gnome pattern AND cut files for Cricut or Silhouette for the pattern. Great news for Gnome Makers batching out making several gnomes at once.
  • This particular gnome was made with an off-cut of a dark blue faux fur that I’ve had in my stash for a while. And you’ll notice, I didn’t have a lot of room for error. If you are new to cutting fur, learn how to cut faux fur in this quick video tutorial.

  4. Close the body by hand-sewing the hole closed.
  5. Cut the faux fur into a beard shape and hot glue the beard to the gnome on the front. Part the faux fur and hot glue the nose in place. Allow the glue to cool completely. in-process step of how to cut a faux fur to make a gnome beard to make a easy farmhouse gnome pattern to sew a gnome
  6. Cut the hat shape and hem the bottom edge of the hat shape.
  7. Fold the hat shape in half, right-side to right-side. Pin and hem the two sides of the hat together. Turn the hat right-side out and tuck the hat down over the body.
  8. Hot glue the hat down over the nose, creating a little wrinkle or scrunch to the fabric. Hot glue the hat down in the back, but leave the sides open if you plan to add arms. Allow the hot glue to cool completely. If you want to add arms, do so now. Your gnome is ready to display! photo collage tutorial of how to make an easy farmhouse gnome pattern
