Fall Gnome Garland
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I realized recently that all of my fall decor was getting a bit tired, so I decided to up my game. And to go with my elegant fall shelf-sitter gnome, I decided to make a matchy-matchy fall gnome garland.

Tips to Make This Gnome Ornament Pattern into a Fall Garland
- You can grab the gnome ornament pattern here to make the little gnomes. It’s a great pattern because it allows you to have arms or not and then you can make an ornament, garland gnomes or gnomes for just decorating on wreaths or whatever! If you’d rather not cut out the gnomes by hand, you can grab the gnome ornament pattern and cut files here for Cricut or Silhouette.
- Make the leaves either by going out into your yard and finding some pretty gold and red leaves (although mine haven’t started changing colors at all yet) or you can just cut a few from felt using this set of hand drawn fall leaves here. Conveniently, you can cut those leaves using your Cricut or Silhouette, or you can just cut them out with scissors. It’s totally up to you.
- If you have never had luck cutting faux fur correctly, don’t worry, in the video tutorial, I show you how to cut it to get that fantastic drape. I like to flip the faux fur over and cut only the fabric backing using a razor blade or craft knife. The fur itself will just part and pull away, leaving you with a fantastic beard!
- Take your time, but enjoy the process. The entire project took me about 25 minutes from start to finish (cutting everything with my Cricut Maker). If you want a more custom look for each gnome, you can paint each beard to match their hats or add mini leaves onto each hat. Make this your own and enjoy every minute of it!
- Let’s chat a little about those wool felt balls. Making those is no simple task! I tried one time and they do not come out of the water as pretty as you might want and it takes a lot more patience than I am willing to spare for such an inconsequential element. So, don’t bother trying to make felt balls, just grab some here – so much better.
