Tips to Make a Tiered Tray Gnome
- I used my super easy Wild Gnome Pattern here to work up this fast farmhouse tomte. Not only do you get the details to make this slouchy-hat gnome, but there are details to make SIX more mini gnomes sized just right for tiered trays. There’s a pine cone hat gnome, a mushroom gnome, a butterfly gnome, a moss hat gnome, a flower hat gnome and a succulent gnome (I can’t wait to share this one, but I have put it out last because it’s the most complex). All sized just right.
- Although this particular gnome isn’t too complex to cut, you can click here to grab a pattern set that includes cut files for Cricut or Silhouette for all seven gnome variations. Awesome for batching out cutting several gnomes at once.
- The farmhouse ticking fabric that I used for this particular gnome is almost identical to that I used on my most popular gnome – and I love it. you can get the same print here that will give you that classic farmhouse look for your gnome.
- The best part of this gnome isn’t the hat (although I love it), it’s that beard. That luscious, thick beard is just everything. But I know that cutting faux fur can be intimidating if you’ve never had success before. So, check out this quick and easy video here that I made to help you! All it takes is a razor blade or
How Do I Make this Mini Farmhouse Gnome Pattern?
I’m so glad you asked! Below is our written tutorial and you can find the tiered tray farmhouse gnome video tutorial here.
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Razor Blade or Craft Knife
- Pencil or Fabric Marker, optional
- Cut the body shape from the fleece fabric and fold it in half right-side to right-side. Hot glue the two tabs together and allow the glue to cool completely.
- Alight two of the three curved bumps on the top of the gnome and hot glue ONE SIDE of the two aligned curved bumps together, meaning hot glue the two bumps together from the topmost point to the base only on 1/2 of the bump.
- Hot glue the base onto the bottom of the body shape. Allow the glue to cool completely.
- Turn the body right side out and fill about halfway full with Poly Beads, stuffing the remaining portion of the body with Poly Fill. Hot glue hem the top closed by pinching the open bumps together, with hot glue between them. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
- To make the hat, cut one large cone hat shape from the farmhouse ticking fabric. Fold up the bottom rounded edge and hot glue hem it.
- Fold the hat shape in half, right-side to right-side. Hot glue the two sides together. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
- Turn the hat right side out, using a pencil or end of a paint brush to push out the tip.
- Place your faux fur face down and, using your razor blade or craft knife, cut the fabric backing only into the shape you want for the beard. Hot glue the beard onto the front of the gnome. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
- Part the beard fur to the fabric about 1/2 inch below the top of the beard. Add a fair amount of hot glue then place the nose on top. Allow the hot glue to cool completely.
- Place the hat onto the gnome's head, tucking the hat over his nose in a cute wrinkle. Hot glue this in place. Hot glue the back of the hat in place, pulling it low to open up the face and add character. If you plan to add arms do so now. Your gnome is ready to display or you can add accessories, if desired.
