Farmhouse Girl Gnome
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are all about the gnome. If you haven’t noticed, there’s some gnomes going on in our house…Right.

I know that probably sounds ridiculous, but it’s just, I had 20 minutes to spare and if you’re doing something that makes you happy, why not?! If you’re ready to make a little kitchen gnome, let’s get started.

Tips to Make a Gnome with Braids
- I used a plain kitchen towel that was well-loved on one side, but still pretty nice for a significant area, so that I knew I wouldn’t have stains showing. You can use any patterned dish towel or whatever–this is just what I had.
- Don’t get just any yarn. To make the braids fine and non-curly, you have to use the super-thick merino wood yarn for roving. It’s that super duper fuzzy stuff people are using to hand knit those crazy big blankets (yeah, I am tempted, but….)
- Although I often make noses out of polymer clay, this time I decided to use a wooden bead from this kit I have. It’s just handy if you want to make a super simple farmhouse gnome, to not have to make the clay and bake it–all that mess.
